Ringing the Wedding Bell

Back in December I wrote a post about an Indian man who was divorcing his 'wife', despite claiming not to be married to her. Now a similar story is grabbing the media headlines in the subcontinent. The captain of the Pakistan cricket team, Shoaib Malik, is involved in a dispute with Ayesha Siddiqui, who wants a divorce from him, but Malik claims he can't divorce her because they were never married. Mind you, it's not entirely surprising that there is some confusion over the marriage when one looks at the ceremony which, it is alleged, took place over the phone. Apparently, such a ceremony can be valid - just hope you don't get a crossed line...
