What’s more shocking than the story itself is how by the age of 16 she’s seen enough moves that included suicide by a hanging rope to do it on herself. The girl was found hanging in her house’s bathroom, according to police she was suffering from depression after getting expelled.[Source]
A girl from Jahra lost her USB stick that was attached to her car keys and she was so worried she hasn’t slept for 3 days. She notified the police to start a search for the USB stick, according to her it contained revealing photos of herself which include compromising photos. Rule #1: Never take a USB stick with this kind of data with you wherever you go, what on earth was she thinking.
This should act as a wake up call to some. A person might find the USB stick and out of goodwill format the drive or anonymously send it back to the owner to avoid embarrassment and on a worst case scenario someone spreads them through Facebook and twitter. Since things easily go viral in Kuwait, it can take very little time for the photos to reach a huge audience.[Source]
That was the title of an article Reuters wrote recently about Kuwait. It’s an interesting read, goes through how our society is changing and how divorce rates are increasing. According to Reuters up to a third of marriages in Kuwait end in divorce, that’s one of every three couples getting a divorce. More guys are getting married after the age of 24 than before.
A story in the article grabbed my attention. It was about a Saudi man and a Kuwaiti girl who wanted to get married. Her father refused so the guy had to make a power point presentation about his family heritage and income. The father was eventually convinced, seven years after the guy first proposed.
