BURAIDAH: The Usra (family) society in Buraidah has initiated a new method of ending rifts between married couples. It invites them to spend a night at its own expense in a big hotel in the city to discuss their problems in a serene and peaceful ambiance, local Arabic daily Al-Watan reported Friday.

"The society was worried by the growing number of family differences. It is obvious that family problems in the Kingdom have reached frightening levels. So we though of this initiative to help married couples discuss their problems peacefully to reach solutions," said the society Chairman Muhammad bin Abdullah Al-Saif.
He pointed out that the society has employed a number of marriage consultants to help it find solutions to conjugal problems.
Al-Saif believed that many of the marriage problems were caused by the lack of correct training of husbands especially those who consider marriage as a sort of friendship or some sort of game.
He warned against the danger of TV soap operas that always project a bright picture of marriage with the couples always loving, embracing and kissing.
"This is showing a positive aspect of marriage which may have other bleak sides," he cautioned.
