New clause on Saudi marriage contracts post royal decree allowing women to drive

Riyadh [Saudi Arabia]: Marriage contracts in Saudi Arabia are expected to see an additional clause included after women in the Kingdom were granted the right to drive.

The section including conditions set by Saudi wives usually included three clauses.

The most popular conditions are the provision of her own independent house, completing one’s education and not preventing her from working if she chose to.

With a decree granting driving licenses for women in Saudi Arabia, a new condition of driving and owning a car is expecd to be included as the fourth prominent provision in marriage contracts starting this week.

One image of a marriage contract including the condition that a husband respects a wife’s decision to drive has been circulating in Saudi Arabia this weekend.

Women in Saudi Arabia will be allowed to drive their cars by beginning of June next year. (ANI)
