Wife needs one-day marriage after drunken divorce
September 2, 2006
After chugging down several bottles of “Taj Mahal” and spending time reading dumpyourwifenow.com, Ershad, a rickshaw puller in India, uttered the word “talaq,” or divorce, three times. That is a no-no in his country, but he gets a “yes-yes” from the staff here. Sadly when he woke up with his hangover, he had a change of heart. The trouble is, now his wife must get married to another man for one day, then get divorced from him in order to come back to Ershad. Seems Muslims are governed by special personal laws including marriage laws.
