Court recognizes 'ketuba' rights of stripper wife

The High Rabbinical Court has ruled that a woman who stripped in public is still entitled to receive monetary benefits afforded her in her ketuba (marriage contract), the court announced on Monday.

The court granted the woman a divorce because the couple repeatedly fought. In one instance, police had to be called after she tore down a photograph of her's husband's deceased wife that he insisted on keeping in their bedroom and the couple came to blows.

According to Jewish law a married woman who acts in a gratuitously sexual manner with other men forfeits her rights under a ketuba because her behavior undermines the stability of the marriage and hurts family unity.
