A court in Dubai has granted a divorce to a man who says his wife is possessed by spirits and refuses to have sex with him, reports suggest.

Wife possessed by Spirits

After persistently denying him sex, the woman finally told her husband to discuss the issue with her parents, the Gulf News daily reports, without naming the couple.

They told the man that his wife was, in fact, possessed by a jinn, and that several religious scholars had unsuccessfully tried to exorcise the spirit, the paper says.

Upon hearing this, the husband lodged a divorce case with the Dubai Sharia Court. His lawyer told a hearing: "The woman and her family cheated my client. They should have been honest and clear about the fact that the wife was possessed by a jinn. He was only told about the jinn after the problem escalated. The woman does not deserve any allowance."

In Arabic mythology, jinns - or genies - are spirits able to take human and animal forms and to exercise supernatural influence over humans.

The court awarded the husband the divorce, but asked him to pay around 40,000 dirhams (almost 11,000 US dollars or 6,800 UK pounds) in maintenance to his ex-wife.

The Dubai Appeal Court later upheld the divorce, but cancelled the alimony. It decided that the woman does not deserve it since she was not honest about the djinn issue, Gulf News says.

Well in a land where 4 wives are acceptable at any given point in time and starting from puberty, it comes as no surprise.
However note, they are using the fact that the woman was possessed for refusal to have sex, could it be a psychological bearing rather than a possession??
But its a place and society of freeflow divorces by just utterance of three words Talak, Talak, Talak and the deed is done.
Its exactly what is written in the Islamic marriage act wherein only the man is allowed to officiate it and if he so deems he can keep her in limbo wondering what has been while he has other wives wherein she can neither divorce nor get intimate with another as it is considered Harami.

Trying to take a dig at me as usual Yugasini??? Well, you were not supposed to be in that account where I was chatting from with family, thereby causing detriment to our relationship. But know hackers like yourself cause a lot of pain for people and have to be bounded and put away into a lamp for safekeeping just like what was said in the Arabian Nights.
Here are my three requirements:
1) I want my entire life and energy given back to me in the next 10 seconds failing which you obliterate.
2) I want my employment given back to me within 24 hours failing which you obliterate.
3) I want you obliterated after granted the first two wishes or I will obliterate you completely.

Take care.
