There is no dearth of divorce cases in which husbands are called out for ill-treating their partners but this is a rare petition for divorce that has been filed in the Shariah court in the UAE.
A woman, according to Khaleej Times, has approached the court seeking divorce from her husband. The reason? He helped her with household chores and didn’t argue with her, reported the newspaper.
“He never yelled at me or turned me down,” the woman, a Gulf national, told the court. She added that his love and compassion are so over the top.
“I am choked by his extreme love and affection. He even assisted me in cleaning the house without me asking him,” she said, adding that he even cooked for her sometimes
“He was always so kind to me that we never had any issue or dispute in our year-long marriage.”
The wife further complained that her life turned into hell with this cruel-free treatment.
“I am eagerly longing for a single day of dispute, but this seems impossible with my romantic husband who always forgave me and showered me with daily gifts.”
“I need a real discussion, even an argument, not this hassle-free life full of obedience.”
The husband said he did not do anything wrong.
“Everybody has advised me to disappoint and turn her down or reject some of her requests, but I did not because I am and always wish to be a perfect and kind husband,” he said and requested the court to advise his wife to withdraw the case.
In the meanwhile, the court has ordered adjournment of the case to give the couple a chance for a settlement.
