DUBAI: Saudis are becoming increasingly alarmed over the rate of divorces in the country for trivial reasons, according to Gulf News.

In one case, a Saudi man divorced his wife after she kept walking ahead of him despite his repeated warnings to keep a step behind him.

 In another case, a Saudi man divorced his wife because she forgot to put the sheep head on the main dish presented by her husband as he hosted his friends for dinner, the Saudi daily Al Watan has reported.

The woman said that after the guests left, her angry husband accused her of embarrassing him by forgetting to present the most important part of the dinner to his guests.

In another case, a husband divorced his wife during their honeymoon for wearing foot bangles after he told her not to.

Other cases of divorce for trivial reasons included a wife not heeding her husband’s warning not to visit her family without his permission and a wife speaking with a tone that did not please her husband.

Growing calls are emerging in Saudi Arabia for to provide married couples—especially newlyweds—with counselling services amid a growing trend in the country to divorce for trivial reasons.

Humood Al Shimmari, an official who conducts marriages, said that the past two years has especially seen an uptick in divorces.

He said while there are many reasons for the increase—including evolving views towards traditions and social norms—modern technology was the key culprit.

“Clearly, there is a poor understanding of the concept of marriage,” Al Ghamdi said.
