A wife in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has asked her husband for a divorce after he had accidentally sent her a picture which had been meant for the other woman, who he had been having an affair with. The man had been in a relationship with the women who is in her 20s for the last two years, according to official reports. When the suspicions of the wife had been confirmed that her husband was indeed cheating on her, she saved all of the Whatsapp messages and the pictures on her mobile phone. Immediately, the very next day, the woman headed over to her family who were living in Jeddah and asked them to support her and to help her get a divorce from her husband and to also gain custody of their two year old daughter. The Saudi Daily Al Watan had reported on the issue.
Despite all of this, the husband of the woman has refused the requests by the family of his wife to grant her a divorce. This then prompted his wife into filing a formal case against her soon to be ex husband in the courts of Saudi Arabia. The wife had told the judges that she was adamant upon getting a divorce from her husband and then proceeded to give the judges all of the messages and pictures from her husband’s phone, which served as evident proof that he was indeed cheating on her.
When the husband was confronted about the affair along with the concrete evidence, he admitted to committing adultery. The husband also regretted deep regret for his actions and also asked his wife to forgive him for his actions. The wife however refused the request for forgiveness from her husband and clearly stated that this was not in fact the first time that he had committed adultery or cheated on her. She added that when she and her husband had travelled to another Arab country, she say pictures of another woman on his mobile phone.
She stated that her husband would often travel to foreign countries, and would tell her that he absolutely has to go because it is for a professional assignment; however now under the light of new evidence she strongly believes that he was indeed having affairs in those foreign countries. This case has been referred to a reconciliation panel in the absolute final attempt to save the marriage if possible, before the court has issued its verdict, the following month.
Personally I believe that those people who cheat on their partners are the absolutely worst type of people one can encounter. They are the perfect examples of hypocrites who are living a fake life with their wives and family, and they are living another life on their mobile phones and when they are away from their family, with other women. Of course cheating can be done by both men and women; however it is far more common in this part of the world, to find the man cheating rather than the woman.
