The One With The Four Husbands

A controversial episode from a satirical Saudi television show was finally aired on Saturday, despite coming under fire from scholars and viewers.

The "Multiple Husbands" episode, the fourth to be shown on the 17th series of Tash Ma Tash, revolves around a woman with four husbands who wants to divorce one so she can marry for the fifth time.

It is based on Saudi columnist Nadine Al-Bidair's article "My Four Husbands and I," published last December in the Egyptian newspaper Al-Masri Al-Youm. The column created a major Islamic debate and received massive criticism.


I didn't even know KSA allowed satire shows, or even a sense of humor.
