Did You Know?
A Saudi Arabian woman can get a divorce if her husband doesn't give her coffee.
Ending a marriage is never easy. But opting for divorce is made even more complicated by the outdated and sometimes incomprehensible laws still in the books. Divorce is even illegal in some parts of the world, making it all the more traumatic to obtain. While getting a divorce is often considered a sad upheaval in the lives of the people it affects, it can be made even stranger by some of the laws that still exist today.
Saudi Arabia is more known for its strict than liberal attitudes, particularly with regards to women and their rights. But one surprising law is that a wife is entitled to divorce her husband if he does not supply her with fresh coffee. That might be stretching things a bit far.
