Although this is true, most of these countries do not seperate mosque and state. They all have implemented some form of Sharia law (in the case of Saudi full shariat). Check out Pakistan; 4 witnesses required to prove rape. That's right from the Quran (let me know if you'd like the reference).

Usually family/marriage/divorce laws are delegated to Sharia law, whereas true, some other parts are secular law; therefore marriage's like this one are handled by Sharia (Islamic law) which as I have shown, allows this to happen.
