    Malaysia permits text message divorce

    Getting a quickie divorce has taken on a whole new meaning in Malaysia after it was decided that a man can divorce his wife with a text message.
    The government's adviser on religious affairs, the man who counsels Malaysia's Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad, said as long as the message was clear and unambiguous it was valid under Islamic Sharia law.

    lol....A little impersonal but I suppose they don't seem to care in Malaysia. I would think it's a result of cultural differences.
    Carrie: Someone\'s definition of what constitutes cheating is in direct proportion to how much they themselves want to cheat.
    Miranda: That\'s moral relativism!
    Carrie: I prefer to think of it as quantum cheating.

    Why couldn't it be that way over here where a woman can divorce her husband.

    Like manicchester said it the cultural differences. Man have more power over there.
    I had to google 'jfgi' to see what it meant. The irony is overwhelming.
