Jeddah – Many countries think that Saudi Arabia is very conservative country, but modern technology is now taking place and for the first time a Saudi couple married through the advanced Skype video communication system.

Saudi media claims that a man studying in the United States married a girl in the Gulf Kingdom and it was the first “Skype” marriage to be performed in the conservative Gulf Kingdom.

Sheikh Fawaz Al Nafeei conducted the marriage rites at the bride’s home in the western Saudi town of Kharma after getting approval from the couple’s families and the groom through Skype.

“At first I was surprised when they asked me to consummate the marriage this way…but then I agreed because it does not contradict with Sharia (Islamic law),” Nafeei said.
