Stone-age societies still exist on planet Earth

This article is unbelievable!

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia - Two years ago, a knock on Fatima and Mansour al-Timani's door shattered the life they had built together.

It was the police, delivering news that a judge had annulled their marriage in absentia after some of Fatima's relatives sought the divorce on grounds she had married beneath her.

This woman has been forced to live in jail with her two children, all because her relatives decided that her husband wasn't worthy of her.

Hell, I'm sure that goes for 90% of the males on the planet, folks. Myself included. But leave it to the Saudis to make it illegal.

God help us all if that sort of society becomes anything more than a minority in this country.
