A Saudi husband has reportedly divorced his wife after she failed to reply to a WhatsApp text message he sent to her. The couple have been married for two years, and the man sent the message from his office and waited for a response from his wife. But none came.
Thinking something must be wrong, he rushed home to find her watching television. When he asked her why she did not respond, she said she was busy chatting with friends on WhatsApp and wanted to reply later. He divorced her instantly, the report added.
The man was quoted as saying by Gulf News;
'I sent her messages on Whatsapp and knew she had read them because of the latest update on the application but still she didn't answer me or acknowledged my messages.'
The husband, in his 30s, said he was frustrated by his wife's seemingly endless interest in using her phone for chatting with friends and family.
This news sounds funny, but it's a reality of life in the time of mobile phones. And now Whatsapp has complicated things even further. I know Blackberry has this functionality and it's gotten me in trouble a few times with friends since I'm always doing several things at the same time, and sometims, my chatting suffers for it.
Has this ever happened to you?
