A Saudi woman is offering SR5 million to get married — even if it is a Misyar marriage. (Misyar is a marriage contract where couples can live separately but get together regularly, often for sexual relations)
But wait. The woman has conditions which she will not reveal now. The main thing is that the new husband must “appreciate marriage life.”
The woman published the attractive offer in the Saudi Arabic language magazine Roa, which said applicants can write to it by e mail or fax. The announcement neither mentioned the woman’s name and age nor where she lives.
“Applicants should provide their contact number so the woman will contact them in case she agrees on the marriage,” the magazine said.
It quoted the woman as saying:”It does not matter whether the new husband is attracted to my money as the most important thing is that he must appreciate marriage life and marital duties…I am even ready to accept a Misyar marriage and pay him SRfive million at once…he will live with me in my villa and must accept all my conditions which I will reveal to him later.”
The magazine said the woman was married before but that she divorced her husband “was greedy and wanted only money.”
“I made the wrong choice first time….I want to make the right choice now…my main obsession now is to marry…I am desperate to marry,” the woman said.
Misyar is a marriage contract where couples can live separately but get together regularly, often for sexual relations.
Although permitted in Saudi Arabia and under Islam, Misyar is not popular with many who see it as legal prostitution. Women lose nearly all their rights in a Misyar marriage and nearly 80 per cent of Misyar relationships end in divorce.
