Marriage is awesome (part 321)

In one of the few small Afghani mountain villages still under the control of the Taliban, a local judge has refused to grant a divorce to a pregnant woman trying to leave her husband two years after he was jailed for beating her.
Under Taliban law, a husband is presumed to be the father of any child born within 300 days of a divorce.
Update: My bad; this apparently happened in Spokane, Washington, NOT in a land where overzealous religious freaks impose their morality on others through fear, discrimination and misuse of the law. (Glad we got rid of THEM. U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!)
