old article so possible repost http://www.alarabiya.net/articles/2007/10/08/40103.html

A 50-year-old Saudi woman asked for divorce after her husband lifted her face veil while she was sleeping, local press reported.

...

And neither the husband or children of Om Rabea al-Gahdaray, 70, have ever seen her face. Al-Gahdaray says it is a family tradition, also followed by mother and sisters, which her husband accepted and never tried to change.

:confused:

She has to like change it or wash it once in a while... He should've used hidden cameras..

Or thrown a cat on her face... instinctively she would have torn it off herself

The practice of always remaining veiled, even in front of your husband, is not an Islamic practice but a very old tradition practiced by a minority of people in Gulf countries.

That's from the article itself. Damn, I hate Saudis. This + women can't drive = :confused:

Kids...so presumably they always had sex in the dark. Ok, with you so far.
But what about when she gave birth? Did she still keep the veil on? What about if there were complications and surgery was required? Would they remove the veil?

I just can't believe that she's cool with a divorce, but heavens help her if someone takes off the veil...

At which point she would have stoned herself to death probably. Don't know how that'd work, but if anyone could figure it out....

Is this religion/tradition serious? I mean, that family/woman IS actually crazy right?

I mean, I understand different values and different cultures and crap but come the hell on here..
