Beating up wives is the topmost reason behind divorces in Ras Al Khaimah, followed by men’s financial inability and them staying out late into the night.
According to a senior official at the RAK Courts, the splits in marriages are to be blamed on a number of reasons, from the use of abusive words, assault and physical violence.
“The Family Counselling Section (FCS) in the RAK Courts has investigated 130 family disputes, basically attributed to marital violence, particularly from the husbands,” said Jassim Al Makki, Head of the section.
Al Makki, who is also a Maazun or Marriage Officer, said his section handled 600 family litigations in the first ten months of the year as compared to 800 in the same period last year. “Official reports show that the husband’s financial inability and staying out late into the night still create family hassles.”
