A man divorced his wife of 10 months with his phone via WhatsApp messenger after the court considered it as an official divorce.
The unidentified man from Saudi sent his wife a message seeking a divorce via the messaging application.
Emirate 247 reported that after receiving his message, the wife went straight to court in the Western Saudi town of Madinah and showed it to the judge before asking him to approve the divorce.
However, the man later told the judge that he didn’t mean to divorce his wife.
A local media wrote, “The judge considered the message as an official divorce as the word was mentioned three times.
He approved it and granted the wife a divorce although the husband told court that he did not mean to divorce her.”
