    3rd divorce could be a charm

    Third Divorce Could Be a Charm

    A Jordanian man is divorcing his wife — for the third time — on the grounds that her habit as a chatterbox is putting him in the poor house.

    Abu Sami told the Petra new agency the phone bills his wife has charged up have cost him more money than he even earns.

    "My wife would talk on the phone for hours with her sisters and girlfriends to discuss recipes, clothes and the latest fashion," Abu Sami told the new service.

    And this isn’t the first time the couple has had money trouble. Abu Sami has divorced his wife twice before for running up a high phone bill. They’ve reconciled after each split under pressure from friends and family.

    But things got out of hand when Abu Sami's wife began using the family landline phone to dial international numbers to participate in games run by Arab satellite channels, the man complained.

    "The phone bills represented threefold my salary," he said, adding that this prompted the first and second divorce.

    Abu Sami said this divorce will be the couple's final one.

    In line with Muslim law the couple can no longer re-marry unless she finds an interim husband before going back to Abu Sami.

    communication?

    If they liked each other so much why didn't they talk to each other? Do they have therapists in Jordan?
    This is my opinion, and change is good.
