aborting her pregnancy although the respondent was never pregnant in the first place, and since
this treatment was not accepted by her and deems her marriage life to be impossible and was not
permissible by the Sharia’ laws, for all of the above, she requested to be divorced for the physical
and mental and psychological damage she had undergone, the appellant had testified to the
marriage and that his wife is still under his name but denied the beating and the subsequent
accusation and insisted on his refusal to divorce her and requested the case to be rejected.
