Woman seeks divorce over nickname

A Saudi woman is seeking a divorce after discovering her husband had nicknamed her 'Guantanamo' on his mobile phone.

The woman made the discovery while examining the list of contacts in her husband's phone when he left it at home one day, the Al-Watan newspaper reports.

The Riyadh newspaper did not name the woman or her husband, who may live to regret comparing life with his wife with the US detention centre in Cuba. His wife has since decided to end their 17-year marriage and is seeking a divorce.

But the newspaper suggested she might settle for "substantial" financial compensation from her husband and stay married to him.

As for me, this is very cruel to her husband. After 17 years of marriage, comparing a wife with prison is already it's too much. I think that they should talk about it, if there is no reasonable justification for this, it is worth filing for divorce without a lawyer.
