Saudi women to start receiving divorce notice by text message

Starting from Sunday, courts will be required to notify women by text on rulings confirming their divorces.

Guardianship laws are legal codes based on a strict interpretation of Shariah law that ensure women in Saudi Arabia remain a legal dependent.

Local female lawyers suggest the measure will end what are known as secret divorces - cases where men end a marriage without telling their wives.

The lawyer said the regulation will ensure women are, firstly, aware of their marital status, and able to protect their rights to alimony, or financial support.

Past year a decades-old driving ban on women was reversed, meaning that a Saudi female can now drive down the street while simultaneously receiving a text notification that her husband has left her. "It also ensures that any powers of attorney issued before the divorce are not misused".

Others have called for the game to be moved due to the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi including human rights groups such as Amnesty International.

Biandudi recalls that Taylor returned later to the establishment just a few minutes after the altercation to confront the manager. The video of the fight was uploaded by a customer named Brenda Biandudi on her Facebook account and soon it went crazily viral.

Multiple intelligence agencies have agreed the killing could not have been carried out without the Crown Prince's knowledge and consent, although he has denied any ties to the crime.

The match, which is set to be held on January 16th in Jeddah, has been hailed by Serie A president Gaetano Micciche as a "historic" match that could drive Saudi women to take up the sport.

Saudi women have only just been allowed to get behind the wheel.

For example, permission to marry must be granted by a guardian otherwise it won't be recognised by a Saudi court.

Divorce in the kingdom have risen dramatically in the last decade, standing at 45 per cent today from 21 per cent in 2005.
