Nice Try, Wrong Religion

From Kenilworth (U.K.) Today of Nov. 23, 2005:

Man cleared of bigamy in Kenilworth


[Michael] Huntington (56) of Pegasus House, Welbeck Road, Bolsover, Chesterfield, had pleaded not guilty at Warwick Crown Court in June to bigamously marrying Linda Branagh.

During an earlier hearing the court heard it was alleged that Huntington had gone through 'a form of marriage' to Ms Branagh in May 2003 while still married.

But Huntington said that before the marriage he had divorced his previous wife, with whom he was living abroad, by telling her 'I divorce you' three times at the airport before he returned to the UK - although they were both described as Christians on the marriage certificate.

By a Sunni Islamic procedure called a triple talaq, a husband can divorce his wife by saying "Talaq, talaq, talaq" ("I divorce you, I divorce you, I divorce you"). If you're not a Sunni Muslim, you'd better have a good lawyer on speed dial before attempting this.
