Another happy Muslim marriage in Wahhabiland. From Arab News, with thanks to Skeetstreet:
DAMMAM – A Saudi man in his fifties locked his wife inside the house storage room for a month because she refused to allow him to marry another wife, Al-Watan reported. The fifty-year-old man went to a family to ask for their daughter’s hand in marriage, however the family insisted that his current wife would have to make the request. Not surprisingly when he asked his wife she refused. After several attempts at convincing her failed, he locked her in the storage room for a month and cut off the electricity. The wife’s apparent refusal was not based on jealousy, but because he has had violent tendencies with her and she would hate to see another victim fall into his abusive grip. His violent behavior has not been restricted to this incarceration as the wife previously said that he has several times threatened to kick her out of the house, and not pay the expenses for her and her children.
