Manama, April 30, 2014
A Saudi man studying in the US and a Saudi woman in the kingdom have married via Skype, the online chat application, a report said.
“I was in the beginning surprised when I was asked to conduct the marriage between a man in the US and a woman here in Saudi Arabia,” Fayez Fawaz Al Nafii, the religious man who officiated the wedding, was quoted saying in the Gulf News report, which cited Saudi daily Okaz.
He said as all the conditions for a valid wedding were met, he went ahead with the marriage.
