Romantic problems in cyberspace

Es lo malo de los musulmanes y que no puedan tomar... Si, no hubieran pedido unas piñas coladas (musical pun very much intended, more after the story)

A Jordanian man divorced his wife after discovering that she was also his virtual girlfriend.

Bakr Melhem had been flirting with a women on an internet chat room for several months.

But, when they finally met up at a bus station, in Zarqa near Amman, he recognised her as his wife Sanaa.

Bakr Melhem immediately shouted the Arabic words for 'I divorce thee' three times.

The husband had assumed the online identity of Adnan, while his wife had described herself as an unmarried Muslim lady called Jamila whose cultural interests included reading.

Jordanian news agency Petra reports when the man uttered the Islamic words, effectively ending the marriage, the woman responded by calling him 'a liar' before she fainted.

y la letra de la Canción de la Piña Colada es:

ARTIST: Rupert Holmes
TITLE: Escape (The Piña Colada Song)
Lyrics and Chords

I was tired of my lady - we'd been together too long
Like a worn-out recording of a favorite song
So while she lay there sleeping, I read the paper in bed
And in the personal columns there was this letter I read

"If you like Piña Coladas, and getting caught in the rain
If you're not into yoga, if you have half a brain
If you'd like making love at midnight in the dunes on the Cape
Then I'm the love that you've looked for - write to me and escape"

I didn't think about my lady - I know that sounds kind of mean
But me and my old lady have fallen into the same old dull routine
So I wrote to the paper, took out a personal ad
And though I'm nobody's poet, I thought it wasn't half bad

"Yes I like Piña Coladas and getting caught in the rain
I'm not much into health food - I am into champagne
I've got to meet you by tomorrow noon and cut through all this red-tape
At a bar called O'Malley's, where we'll plan our escape"

So I waited with high hopes and she walked in the place
I knew her smile in an instant, I knew the curve of her face
It was my own lovely lady, and she said, "Oh it's you."
Then we laughed for a moment, and I said, "I never knew."

That you like Piña Coladas, getting caught in the rain
And the feel of the ocean, and the taste of champagne
If you'd like making love at midnight in the dunes of the Cape
You're the lady I've looked for - come with me and escape

"If you like Piña Coladas, and getting caught in the rain...

Por eso interné es la madre de todos los males...

Antes de internet: Ah eres tú con la que queria engañarte a tí! I love you honey
Despues de internet: Ah eres tú con la que queria engañarte a tií! I divorce thee!!
