    Saudi judge: It's OK to slap spendthrift wives - CNN.com

    By Mohammed Jamjoom

    (CNN) -- Husbands are allowed to slap their wives if they spend lavishly, a Saudi judge said recently during a seminar on domestic violence, Saudi media reported Sunday.

    Arab News, a Saudi English-language daily newspaper based in Riyadh, reported that Judge Hamad Al-Razine said that "if a person gives SR 1,200 [$320] to his wife and she spends 900 riyals [$240] to purchase an abaya [the black cover that women in Saudi Arabia must wear] from a brand shop and if her husband slaps her on the face as a reaction to her action, she deserves that punishment."

    Too bad, for a second I thought maybe there had been at least an attempt at a prosecution, but no such luck. Even losing in court would have been a step forward.

    I knew a Saudi kid here in the USA for school. He was dating a pretty, but naive girl from Fitchburg I think. I hope she woke up and didn't follow him back home.

    Oh don't be so melodramatic. It's only if she buys a really pricy one.
