Bahrain Court grants divorce on payment of 23 Fils
An Arab woman was divorced from her husband after paying only 23 Bahraini fils, which equals the dowry she received from him, and giving up all of her other rights as a dower.
The woman married in her native Egypt, and her husband gave her one Egyptian pound in dowry, which is equivalent to 23 Bahrain fils. He brought her to live in Bahrain, but problems arose between them, prompting her to file for divorce with the High Shariat Court. She petitioned the court for a divorce, agreeing to return the dowry and waive her rights.
“As a result, the court decided to grant the plaintiff’s request in exchange for relinquishing the full dowry mentioned in the marriage contract, equal to one Egyptian pound, as well as giving up all of her other rights,” the ruling read
