Divorce, Desperation, and Dramatic Developments is Volume Three of The Saudi Marriage Trilogy, which is a collection of fascinating stories about married life in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in the 21st century. This volume portrays the lives of girls and women in the cultural environment of bizarre Wahhabi and tribal traditions concerning divorce. It is very difficult for a Saudi woman to divorce her spouse no matter how abusive or immoral he may be. However, a husband can routinely easily divorce his wife for no reason simply by saying "I divorce you" three times. And now another step backward in social justice has begun in the shocking, new phenomenon known as "forced divorce" in which male relatives and tribal leaders can "legally" force a happily married couple to divorce one another--leaving their children helpless, homeless, and hopeless. This volume relates heartrending and yet truly inspirational stories of many courageous females in extreme adversity, including a remarkable young woman known throughout Saudi Arbia as "the girl from Khamis Mushayt."
