Saudi Husband dicorces wife after she fails to reply to his watsapp text


A Saudi husband has divorced his wife after she failed to reply to a WhatsApp text message.

The man, who got married two years ago, sent the message from his office and waited for a response from his wife. But none came.

Thinking something must be wrong, reported Emirates 24/7, he rushed home to find her watching television.

When he asked her why she did not respond, she said she was busy chatting with friends on WhatsApp and wanted to reply later. He divorced her instantly, the report added.

'I sent her messages on Whatsapp and knew she had read them because of the latest update on the application but still she didn't answer me or acknowledged my messages,' he was quoted as saying by the Gulf News.

The husband, in his 30s, said he was frustrated by his wife's seemingly endless interest in using her phone for chatting with friends and family.
