Saudi judge: It's OK to slap spendthrift wives


www.cnn.com

(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."

This is just disgusting to me. Here it is, 2009 and women over there are still treated like objects or property. How, in anybodies mind, no matter where you come from or what culture you grew up in , is it at all acceptable to hit a woman at all?

This just blows my mind. I just do not know what to say accept thsi is just plain wrong, wrong wrong!

This should not be happening yet it is.

I am so disgusted. I apologize for not being able to post a more thorough comment here but I am just so upset at this I just can hardly think clearly.

I only wish that the judge who made ths call could see this thread.

YOU JUST NEVER HIT A WOMAN!!!!
