You can't drive, well then marry your driver.

Known for it's anti-feminist culture, and that's putting it very mildly, Saudi Arabia will not allow women to operate a motor vehicle. Seriously it's a law. I'm unaware of the reasoning, but if I found out my blood pressure would probably escalate.

Four women got tired of their long commutes. They figured the best solution would be to marry their driver. Yes all four women are now wed to a driver and they have agreed to give him a portion of their monthly salary. They now live closer to their respective workplaces and have a taxi service at their disposal.

Romance is king in the mideast country.
