A French court has annulled the marriage of two French Muslims because the husband complained his wife was not the virgin she had claimed to be. His lawyer won the case by arguing a civil marriage is a legal contract and lying about an important element in it amounts to fraud. Religion had nothing to do with it, he argued, and the court agreed.
Isn’t it amazing how Muslims can game Western legal systems in ways that non-Muslims would never be allowed to get away with?
