Only half way up

Weary and flaccid husbands rejoice! No need to stand fully to attention any more, a half-slump is fine, according to this shariah judge in a divorce ruling:

"She claimed that the husband was sexually impotent and had deserted her. She also accused him of insulting her and her family, and that he insisted on watching pornographic movies, talking to other women, and practising masturbation. The woman also said that he failed to spend on his three children.

"At the court hearing, Ousama said he suffered from sexual impotence due to diabetes, but it was only ‘partial’."

Thank you for running this uplifting message up the flagpole.

Foolish consistency may be the hobgobblin of small, erm, minds but is it possible to be impotent and to be able to visit Mary Palm? Perhaps the contradiction is only apparent and a family portrait would resolve this issue.

Strangely, this is regarded as news this week:

...talking to other women, and practising masturbation.

You'd have thought he'd have got it right by now, wouldn't you?

Maybe she just didn't have what it takes to bring him to attention.

gotta agree with cg, a marriage without a little porn and masturbation is a very sad little marriage indeed.

which begs the question...should porn and masturbation constitute legitimate grounds for divorce? seems a little harsh.

I think this subject would have been discussed in a less offensive way than “Weary and flaccid husbands rejoice!”. I am not a “Weary and flaccid husband", but I think that this is not the right way of starting an article!

Women are just shallow...there's more to love than making love you know??

How is this news anyway? This is like National Enguire or Sun material. Khaleej times is a joke with their ' UAE's number 1 newspaper'. Maybe they should help that man with knuckle shuffle by publishing topless pictures of women (I mean women with their clothes off, not with their head off Saudi Style). Or else just shut down the paper all together.

Now there really is no need for that here in The Dusty City, I mean you can buy Viagra at any chemist in Bur Dubai - or so I've been told, by a, ahem, friend!

Off topic, but I had to bring this to everyone's attention:

US Marine shot dead by Iraqi soldier
(Updated at 0950 PST)
BAGHDAD: A US Marine was allegedly shot dead by an Iraqi soldier at a base of coalition forces near Al-Qaim, close to the Syrian border, the US military said on Saturday.

The Iraqi soldier was seriously wounded in the incident, which took place on Thursday, the military said.

It did not offer other details about the incident.

This is what I meant when I published previously in a comment on this blog about these "Iraqi troops" biting the hands that feed someday!
