Fathers-in-law can be real pains, especially when they try to force divorce and demand compensation. According to a report in the daily Al-Shams newspaper on Sunday, a Makkah man went to a judge demanding that his daughter separate from her husband of over nine years. In addition to that, the man wanted financial compensation for all the time his son-in-law slept with his daughter. The man also claimed that he had the legal right to speak on behalf of his daughter. The judge sent the father to a medical investigation to examine his mental health when he continued insisting a divorce despite the couple’s wish to continue their conjugal life with greater mutual understanding.
