A peril of talking in your sleep: A divorce

Interpretations vary widely on this issue, but among some Muslims, it's believed that if the husband utters "I divorce you" three times in succession to his wife, she is then an ex-wife.

Women in Islam don't have the same rights in dissolving marriages.

According to Islam Online, a man uttered "I divorce you" three times in his sleep. Local Muslim clerics told the couple, who have been married 11 years and have 3 kids to separate.

They haven't. And other clerics say they aren't divorced.

It's been commented by many within and outside of Islam that the faith needs a reformation. The divorce laws might be a good place to start.
