Talk of marriage and it is one of the most beautiful things in the world. The internet for instance is awash with beautiful marriage stories with couples staying together for more than 50 years and over and the love is still deep.
But is that really the case off late? The rate of divorce off late is really alarming and the reasons behind them are somehow funny.
Take a look at this Saudi man for instance.
It was reported he divorced on the basis of Whatsapp message.
According to Gulf news report; a man in Saudi Arabia has been granted a divorce because his wife ignored his WhatsApp messages.
Despite the fact she was constantly using her cell phone, reports Gulf News, the wife would not respond to messages from her husband.
The pair had been married for two years.
Gulf News reports that the husband, in his 30s, became exasperated because his wife spent so much time on her phone.
He claimed she neglected looking after the home and taking care of their child.
The wife claimed she needed her cell phone to keep in touch with her friends and family.
So, in desperation, the husband used WhatsApp to try and talk to his wife but she ignored his messages because, she claimed, she was too busy talking to her friends.
That was the final straw for the husband who sought and got a divorce.
You see, is that not really funny? A Chinese man for instance also divorced his wife for giving birth to ugly kids. The wife had undergone plastic surgery before the met hence he sent the case to court and won more than $200,000 in damages as well as divorce.
