In Saudi Arabia a husband could not recognize his wifes face after she had a fatal car accident. He asked the police to put her veil back on so he can better identify her. Simply because within their 10 years of marriage, he never saw her face. I fully respect all traditions and cultures, but when you are married for 10 years with five kids from a wife who you don’t know what she even looks like, that’s just too shocking. Before you put all your rage on her husband for forcing her with the veil, he didn’t.
My wife still keeps her face covered all the time even in front of her family and relatives because she has been accustomed to this since she was a child…I have to respect her wishes and not insist on seeing her face,
I have no idea how the husband put up with this for 10 years. I thought veils were meant for public use only. Such a lovely couple.[Source]
