Yesterday Judith Middleton had a nice story from Malaysia about a man who divorced his two wives within minutes of each other. Well, I've got another story from that country. In this one, a woman is suing her husband for 3 million ringgits (about £480,000), for causing her to lose her virginity to him on the false promise that he would marry her and “take care of her”. The promise had been made when he asked her to sleep with him, but now his parents are apparently objecting to the marriage and vowing never to make her part of the family, with the result, she says, that it "is a marriage on paper only".
Now, I suspect that this kind of promise is made by many men trying to entice women into bed with them, so my advice to such men is to keep your fingers crossed when making it!
