Dubai, August 21(ANI): Saudi Arabian women initiate 80 percent of the divorces within one of year of their marriage, citing reasons such as snoring, lack of romance, according to a new survey.
A marriage contractor told Al Youm that women insist on getting a divorce due to trivial issues, like the look of the husband inside the house among many others, Gulf News reported.
He added that young wives were getting influenced by the media and dramas.
The drafting marriage contractors had a meeting with religious figures to discuss the figures and causes of divorce, in Al Qateef in eastern Saudi Arabia.
Several measures, including the need to check on the background of prospective grooms and not relying solely on matchmakers, were suggested in the meeting to curb the increasing divorce rates in the kingdom.
The religious leaders and the marriage contractors also suggested to not rush into making final decisions on ending a marriage, until all ways for a reconciliation are exhausted and the spouses be given ample time to reconsider their options. (ANI)
