Divorce laws that vary around the world

The Herald recently published an article about how different divorce law are around the world.  An Arab Muslim man, for example, who wants to divorce his wife merely assembles two witnesses and his wife and tells her, “I divorce thee.” He then keeps the children, because he owns them, and can remarry almost as soon as he has uttered those fateful three words.  The article puts our own divorce laws in perspective and how swiftly they can change.
