In Dubai almost a quarter of Muslim divorces were carried out by email or text message.
LM is no scholar however surely the importance and sanctity regarding the institution of marriage within Islam must lend itself to a more humane and considered approach to the sadly rising number of divorces amongst Muslims around the world.
I wrote recently about the significant number of Muslim sisters in the UK who are struggling to find a husband leading to a Scottish Sheikh issuing an interesting fatwa urging British Muslim men to marry British Muslim girls rather than going overseas. It's difficult to establish why divorce is rising but perhaps the different cultures that comes with marrying people from another country may play a part in misunderstanding and difficulties that comes with trying to attempt a relationship.
