Egyptian women file for divorce for husbands mockery

Egypt: Divorce Lawsuits Increased to 52% as Men Mock Wives’ Body Shape
At least 52 percent of Egyptian women who file for divorce through a ‘Khulaa’ lawsuit – an Islamic procedure in which a woman can divorce her husband by returning the dowry – do so because of their husband’s mockery of their physical appearance and body shape, Egyptian family courts report.
The Marriage Disputes Settlement Offices at Family Courts analyzed random samples of wives’ complaints, from high and working-class couples across several Cairo districts.
The analysis found that approximately 560 women have filed for Khul`a cases in 2018 after being subjected to violence from their spouses. 
Elsewhere, alimony and child custody lawsuits represented only 2 percent of the total number of marital complaints, caused by the spouse’s refusal to pay money because of his second marriage.
Meanwhile, from men, approximately 400 husband filled complains against wives who ‘deceived’ them and took away their marital houses and furniture.
