Court Stops Kuwait Woman's Marriage
Category: Kuwait Local News

The Court of Cassation overturned the decision of Appeals Court and stopped a Kuwaiti lady from getting married. According to the lady’s father (defendant), the plaintiff (intended husband) isn’t compatible with her daughter and also clings to an ambiguous creed.

Representing the defendant, lawyer Nada Al-Atheri explained that the man who planned to marry the daughter of her client was dangling between Sunni and Shiite doctrines; in the sense that he chose what suited his worldly desires, as opposed to making a choice to safeguard his religion and belief.

Therefore, the man is considered to be lacking uprightness in religion. She noted that compatibility in Sharia means “equivalence between a prospective husband and his prospective wife, and it’s necessary to follow the right step.

She added compatibility depends on multiple factors, which include religion, social status, morality, piety and wealth, lineage or custom; thus depicting compatibility as part of the conditions looked upon before married.

Earlier, the Court of Cassation rejected the case filed against the lady’s father on accusation of preventing his daughter from getting married without any acceptable reason. However, the father managed to convince the court that the man in question did not fulfill the condition of ‘compatibility’.
