Saudi women to get divorce notices over text


In Saudi Arabia, a new regulation is set to stop Saudi women from not knowing about their own divorce.

Starting from today, courts will be required to notify women by text on rulings confirming their divorces.

Local female lawyers suggest the measure will end what are known as secret divorces, wherein men end a marriage without telling their wives.

The directive would ensure women are fully aware of their marital status and can protect rights such as alimony.

Last year, a decades-old driving ban on women was lifted in Saudi Arabia.
