“He repeated his words to leave him alone before he became exasperated and decided to divorce her,” Abdul Aziz Al Zair, a religious scholar said to an audience, while discussing marital issues on television.

However, Al Zair also said that now the husband is regretting his decision and living in pain and remorse.

“The divorced wife went back to her family outside Riyadh and the former husband is now suffering under the painful feeling of guilt and remorse for his destructive attitude,” he added.

The news was slammed by social media users, who said that the Saudi men lack minimum common sense.
