Another step in the right direction for women's right in the UAE

Tthe Federal Supreme Court has ruled that a husband divorced by his wife must pay half her marriage dowry if it can be proved she was abused. It is hoped this will prevent men from harrassing and bullying and abusing their wives into divorcing them. This "happens all the time", according to one attorney.

Anti Islamic. I hope the judge that allowed this dies of a huge heart attack brought on by his wife's nagging.
Plus, you being a foreigner, and what I would classify as a prostitute (islamically) you really shouldn't even be commenting on this.
