Riyadh, Jeddah top cases of marriage annulment


Riyadh and Jeddah have topped the Kingdom’s cities for having the largest number of marriage annulment cases owing to the husbands’ failure to pay alimony and the wives’ dissatisfaction with their marriages in the first nine months of the current year, local media said quoting data released by the Ministry of Justice.

Riyadh courts received 10 cases of wives’ complaints against their husbands for failing to pay alimony whereas Jeddah courts received 5 with one case each in Dammam and Abha.

There were four cases in Riyadh of wives dissatisfied with their husbands compared to one case in Jeddah, Al-Eqtisadiyah daily said.

Legal adviser Abeer Al-Ahmed attributed the growing number of cases in Riyadh and Jeddah to the increased legal awareness among women.

She said that the more awareness women have, the more they tend to follow legal ways to get their rights.
