A lesson for all women: don't marry somebody younger than you

A Malaysian woman, who was forced to have an abortion, was taken to Pakistan to watch her husband marry another woman.

The 47-year-old businesswoman, who only wanted to be known as Hayati, said she also had to settle her husband’s RM120,000 debt.

Hayati said she married the 44-year-old Pakistani in 1997 after her first marriage failed.

She said she did not know that her husband was only interested in her property and to obtain permanent residence status.

In 2009, Hayati turned to the Syariah Court for help. She said her experience was a lesson for women who planned to marry foreigners.
