Grounds for Divorce

Post by Glyphdoctor »

Well, this was an interesting news item I read this morning. A woman in Cairo is suing her husband for divorce. Why? Because she discovered he was "selling his body" to foreign female tourists for money to support a drug habit.

Imagine if this sort of case became popular in Luxor.

Married life can be difficult, but I have never felt the need to turn to drugs or prostitution..

Why Luxor? Seems just as popular in Cairo.

I wonder if she wants a divorce because he is selling his body (which can't be up to much being a druggie) to foreign women. Or if she is wanting a divorce because he spends all his money on drugs? Perhaps she would be happy if he was buying her new clothes a TV, air con, washing machine, with his ill gotten gains.

No, she actually started to think something was fishy when he started to have too much money. That and other signs which are described in the article.

I once worked for a woman who among other transgressions, once threw a tantrum screaming "I don't speak the ******* language" when she needed to issue a receipt for water delivery, before turning to me to ask me to do it. She was barred from working in Egypt the next year.

Just saying...

... just trying to say cos I do not speak the lingo, I shouldn't be here. I once knew a woman that was extremely intelligent, clever, refined and sophisticated. She shot herself in her left eye with an air pistol. Spoke French for several minutes even though prior to this happening, she never had knowledge of the language. It is not the persons ability in languages that is important, but their willingness to make other peoples lives a little easier without the pomp.

No, that's not what I am saying at all. But i am not interested enough in this tangent to explain. I would waste time. Sorry.

You tend to waste my time anyway when replying to anything I say, so nothing new there. :up Going off at a tangent is usually par for the course anyway on this site. :mrgreen:
