Saudi Arabia Looks to Marriage Education to Cut Judicial Costs
Saudi Arabia's Ministry of Justice is contemplating requiring couples to obtain family management licenses before marrying. Sixty percent of all court cases in the nation are family disputes, says the Saudi Gazette.
No suggestion was offered that individuals might complete their training before beginning the search for a marriage partner. The license is to be granted to the couple. Sounds like training will be needed on demand, as many arranged marriages occur fairly quickly after the two agree to a match.
The course will teach "the skills and knowledge needed to solve disputes when they are married." I have my fingers crossed that they include how to Find Third Alternatives.
I wonder what percentage of U.S. court cases are family disputes and how much our state budgets could be cut if more of us received marriage education?
