Earlier this year, Saudi Arabia lifted its ban on women driving. But this Saudi guy was not to keen with the idea of his significant one to drive.
So the man called off his wedding, minutes before the actual ceremony – After a request from the brides father to allow her to drive after marriage.
Arabic daily Al-Marsd reported: The father had demanded that his daughter get a driving licence and a car after the ban has been lifted in the country in June 2018, after which the groom quickly left the venue rejecting the request leaving his family behind.
Before the agreement of a hefty dowry of 40,000 Riayals ( $10,666) in addition allowing her to continue working after getting married.
This is not fair in my opinion what do you think?
But others chose to look at the ban in a positive way remember him?
Well for others they cherish their wife to be driving like the this guy.
(Different Saudi Man) Do you remember him now?
Faisal BaDughaish, who’s an analyst in a gas and oil company from Dhahran in the east of Saudi Arabia, tweeted a picture of him with his wife in an empty car park.
The tweet said: “I started teaching my wife how to drive in one of the private parking spaces in a safe and legal way, preparing for the law to take effect.”
However, the reaction to the picture – which was retweeted thousands of times – shows just how controversial the lifting of this driving ban really is. Some people said that they disapproved of BaDughaish publishing a photo of his wife’s face.
“Don’t you feel embarrassed or protective of her when posting her picture?” tweeted one user called Bderr1991. “Shame on you.”
Many women responded positively to the tweet though, saying that they too were expecting lessons from men in their family. A woman by the name of Amal Nadhreen said: “Tomorrow, my son Azzam will teach me how to drive.”
Some men, such as Faisal Alshehri, tweeted that they were encouraged by Mr BaDughaish to teach their own wives: “We’re all going to follow your lead.”
