In a landmark ruling in Saudi Arabia women have finally won the right to be dumped by text message.

The victory follows the incredible shift in policy in the kingdom that has finally allowed women the right to drive to their own public executions by stoning.

Previously women could only leave relationships with their husbands by being beaten to death or strangled.

“This move finally brings Saudi Arabia into the 21st century.” A women’s rights activist told The Rochdale Herald.

“Now women in Saudi Arabia can finally enjoy the right to be simply treated like dirt at the end of their relationships rather than be unceremoniously killed by their husbands.”

“You know, before their fathers or brothers murder them for having been dumped.”

“It’s a bold step forward.”
