NEW YORK: Jewish ex husband remarries while refusing to give his wife a "get" – NYT

According to a recent article in the New ‘York Times, Meir Kin is an orthodox Jew who flatly refuses to give his wife Baniela Barboa a “get” which is basically a “release” from their marriage such that she can remarry if she chooses. Mr Kin is among a group of Orthodox Jewish men  who bully their wives into remaining “chained” to a “dead marriage” against their will – the term used in their faith is “agunah” which means ‘chained spouse.” The interesting point here is that after 7 years of keeping his wife chained, Mr. Kin has recently remarried in Las Vegas but  is STILL REFUSING TO GIVE HIS WIFE THE GET.  More here
