SMS Divorce Tested in Egyptian Court

Not something you could get away with in the U.S., obviously, but Islamic law is something different.

After missing a call from her husband on her mobile phone, Iqbal Abul Nasr received a text message from him saying "I divorce you because you didn't answer your husband," Al-Akhbar said.

In line with sharia (Islamic law) men do not need to go to court to file for divorce. A unilateral declaration of divorce by a man, repeated three times, formally ends a marriage.

It was the third time Abul Nasr, an engineer from Cairo, received a divorce text message from her husband, prompting her to seek a legal decision from the a family court on the status of her marriage.

This practice has already been outlawed in some countries.  Too many divorce messages flooding the network, we assume.
