Mauritania is arguably one of the countries with the highest divorce rate in the world. But paradoxically the traditions are very conservative. Mauritanian society has trivialized divorce, a woman can divorce more than 3 times without being marginalized, as is done in some cultures.


In an Islamic Republic, where alcohol is prohibited and blasphemy punishable by death, this may seem very surprising. But this is one of the causes of these numerous divorces. Due to the prohibition of adultery by law, women marry very early and very young to avoid wanton. The result is surprisingly, to say the least, a loveless marriage that women do not hesitate to leave without fear of being rejected.

While in Africa divorced women are generally very frowned upon by the society which judges and condemns them, in Mauritania, women have acquired a certain freedom and power that even divorce cannot take away from them. On the contrary, the more a woman divorces, the more valuable she is in the eyes of men. After the 3 months imposed by Islam, the woman organizes a party which in a way symbolizes her release and of course. in the marriage market while waiting for another divorce.
