Rabbinical court makes husband pay after seeing Facebook correspondence


JERUSALEM (JTA) — An Israeli rabbinical court made a husband pay a divorce settlement after his ex-wife showed correspondence between him and other women on Facebook.

The court awarded the woman damages from her husband of about $40,000, Ynet reported. It did not identify where the couple was from or when the decision was reached.

The couple, in their 30s, met on a dating website and ultimately married. Six months after they were married, the woman found that her husband was corresponding with other women on Facebook and on dating websites, according to Ynet.

The woman told the rabbinical court that her husband doomed the marriage.

The court agreed and ordered her husband to pay a divorce settlement.
