Men can divorce their wives over message apps, over the phone and with letters

Five Muslim women in India have filed complaints over instant divorce saying it violates their fundamental right to equality under the Indian Constitution.

According to the Indian Constitution, citizens have the right to “equality before the law” and any “discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste and sex” is prohibited.

However, India is also a secular country and Indians have “the right to freely profess, practice and propagate religion” allowing every religious denomination the right “to manage its own affairs in matters of religion.”

Muslim men have been practicing “triple talaq” or instant divorce for years, leaving their wives with no warning or financial support.

The Supreme Court is expected to issue a ruling on the matter within the next few weeks.

My buddy got married less than a year ago to a Thai lady. Upon returning to the U.S with his bride, she became a completely different person and has demanded a divorce. Since he was utterly in love, he did not get a prenuptial agreement. He is looking for an American or English divorce lawyer in Thailand that will kelp him out of this tricky situation. Any recommendations?
