    (CNN) -- Husbands are allowed to slap their wives if they spend lavishly, a Saudi judge said recently during a seminar on domestic violence, Saudi media reported Sunday.

    Arab News, a Saudi English-language daily newspaper based in Riyadh, reported that Judge Hamad Al-Razine said that "if a person gives SR 1,200 [$320] to his wife and she spends 900 riyals [$240] to purchase an abaya [the black cover that women in Saudi Arabia must wear] from a brand shop and if her husband slaps her on the face as a reaction to her action, she deserves that punishment."

    Women in the audience immediately and loudly protested Al-Razine's statement, and were shocked to learn the remarks came from a judge, the newspaper reported.

    Why do I have the feeling that some men on this board will suddenly feel solidarity with Muslim men? :p

    Don't listen to him. He lies. I was making horseradish potato salad, but I did see the initial post. I commented that I wouldn't like to be stuck in one of those burkas with those awful chauvanists. :D

    If i told my wife to take 240.00 and by something to cover her head up she would slap the snot out of me and I would be wearing one to cover up the bruises.

    Absolutely. I'm a cafeteria muzzie.

    What's the dude doing giving his wife $320 in the first place? Surely there were some scrap garments laying around the house that she could have used to sew one together.
    Be Not Afraid.

Upon the man rests all the responsibility to build and maintain a happy family...or die trying.

    “The characteristic of genuine heroism is its persistency. All men have wandering impulses, fits and starts of generosity. But when you have resolved to be great, abide by yourself, and do not weakly try to reconcile yourself with the world. The heroic cannot be the common, nor the common the heroic.”
    Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Freedom is the natural yearning of the human sprit as we were endowed by our creator.
