A serial monogamist in Saudi Arabia turned himself into such a terrible companion to his wives that four of them asked for a divorce (khul) over a period of three years.
He would purposely treat them with contempt to the point where the women would seek a separation to be rid of his shabby treatment, according to Okaz.
As per Shariah law, when a woman asks for divorce, she would have to return her dowry (mahr) in full to the husband.
The scheming man married women without losing the dowry money and boasted about his ability to do so.
He continued with his nefarious designs until a judicial official informed one of the wives that the man had a history of wives demanding divorce.
He counselled her to file another lawsuit to nullify the marital contract (faskh) without compensation (to him) because he was not fit for marriage according to his failed marriages in the past.
This nullification applies if a man is shown to lack financial means to sustain a marriage or fulfil other marital duties, or that he mistreated his wife. The nullification takes effect in place of the separation.
The judicial official affirmed that such a man cannot be deemed fit for marriage under Shariah law.
