Appeal to the court.. A Saudi complains about his "abusive wife"


Today, Wednesday, a Saudi newspaper revealed that a husband in the Kingdom filed a complaint with the security authorities, requesting that his wife be punished, who used to abuse him by speaking and uttering bad words about him in front of their children after every dispute between them.

In his complaint, the husband requested that his wife be punished with imprisonment and a fine, and he also expressed his desire to separate from her, justifying this by his desire to "teach her a lesson."

According to the local newspaper, Al-Watan, "one of the criminal courts in the western region received a strange complaint from a husband asking to punish his wife for causing him psychological harm, as a result of creating constant problems with him, uttering and cursing him constantly until he sleeps outside the house." In his complaint, the husband said that "his wife is "strong in character" and cannot argue with her," noting that "his wife finally stipulated an amount of 250,000 riyals ($67,500), which prompted him to file a complaint because he was unable to divorce her."

The Magistrate's Court was able to persuade the wife to "improve her behavior" with her husband, as the judge informed her that "according to the recordings, reports and letters submitted by the husband, and which proved that she had abused him, the matter may become against her, and she may be sentenced to either a fine or imprisonment."
