Saudi Woman Divorces Husband For Looking St Her Face

king-abdullah-of-saudi-arabia.jpgTO the pages of Saudi Arabia’s Al-Riyadh organ, and news of the man who wants to see the face of his wife of 30 years standing.

He waits. And when she’s asleep he lifts her veil. What terrors lurk beneath, we cannot say. Some say she has an eye in the centre of her tongue and when the moon is high looks like a young Anthea Turner with her face trapped between a pair of lift doors.

The wife awakens. She is outraged. “After all these years, he tries to commit such a big mistake,” she tells the paper. She is now suing the peeping Tom for divorce.
To the Mail this is an insight into Islam, the 50-year-old wife following in the arcane traditions of her native village near the south-western city of Khamis Mushayt. The paper says that her features are kept veiled “at all times”.

And readers may wonder if she knows what she looks like, and might have reacted to her husband’s inappropriate behaviour by inquiring: “Is it true?”

It might well be that no woman in the locale knows what they look like, and neither do their men.

But we have seen and can say that the women of Khamis Mushayt are all uniformly blonde with a rose-bud lips and smouldering eyes…
