She wants to get married again right after her divorce in Kuwait but she's pregnant...

Holy cow! This is more unbelievable than the American woman married to a Kuwaiti with the Kuwait visa issue for her children with another baby daddy.
Arab Times repost: Want to get married again but I am pregnant
I have been divorced by my husband and have completed “Iddah”(the waiting period) of three months. My husband has already remarried and I am also planning to do so immediately. But I am pregnant and as I am a Muslim my friends tell me I can’t marry and have to wait.
Could you please tell me whether this is true and, if so, how long do I have to wait. And secondly what are the exact waiting periods in such a case for a divorced woman and that for a widow. Are these different.

Answer: Your friends are right. As long as you are pregnant after a divorce you can’t marry in Islam although the man can do so immediately regardless of the circumstances.
In such a case you have to wait until the delivery of the child because the “Iddah”(waiting period) in such cases becomes nine months or until the termination of the pregnancy.
So, you just have to wait a few months more i.e. until the baby is born and then all the restrictions are lifted. And lastly, the waiting periods for divorced women and widowed women are different.
While the waiting period for a divorced woman is three months as we have mentioned above, a widow has a waiting period of four months and 10 days.


  1. What I want to know is: WHO da baby daddy? Husband-to-be? Current husband? Some other man? Fassssscinating. It is all very Jerry Springer.

    1. It's got to be the current husband. Fighting makes for some good lovin' and apparently babies. hahahaha!

  2. Haha I read this in the morning and almost fell of my chair!!!

    1. I almost spit out my Nespresso! Looool!

  3. Maybe I should start sending really crazy shyt to the AT and see if they will post it....

    1. Great idea! Please let me know ahead of time so I can be the first one to repost it.

      How about: I'm having an affair with my husband's grandfather and his brother. That's a good start...
