Reader comment on item: Advice to Non-Muslim Women against Marrying Muslim Men
in response to reader comment: Robin, about getting divorced

Submitted by Robin (United States), Sep 6, 2019 at 15:03

As to whether his family was in on it, read my post to Hope. His sister and I talked a lot at the end, especially after he was in South Korea, and she made me promise not to tell him what we talked about (she told me to end the marriage and not go back to him). I always felt like she liked me. When we first met, she was still with her husband, but having problems with him (she talked to me about this later). She divorced him and moved back home more than two years ago.

I don't know what kind of marriage we have. I can tell you the process was complicated, what with me having to provide two certified copies of a lot of things, having it translated, and going to various locations to have them stamped and approved. We drove to Rabat and back twice, because it's the capital, and he lived in Casablanca. I can send you a scanned copy whenever you email me and I have your email address, and maybe you can tell me. We did finish it at a mosque, though it was a cleric (?) in an office outside of the mosque who did it, with no ceremony. That was one of the things that tripped him up in the visa interview, that there were no photographs of a wedding celebration, either from that visit or my next one a few months later. It's kind of difficult to provide photographs of something that never happened. ;) As far as him having additional wives, what I read is that he has to get the first wife's consent to marry another if they are not divorced, but whether he gets held to that is questionable. I sincerely doubt (and I told him this) that he would be able to find another woman who would want to marry him, based on what a loser he is.

Thank you for your response. You don't know how much everyone here has helped me through this extremely difficult situation. The fact that you have come out the other side and are doing well really cheers me up. Let me know if you want to see the marriage certificate, and I will email it to you.
