“Nowt so strange as folk…”
Just occasionally we lawyers are baffled as to the reasons why people want to divorce their other half. The gold star for this, however, has to go to a lady in the United Arab Emirates, who filed for divorce from her husband because she alleged he “loved her too much”. He was accused of choking her by extreme love and affection and for helping her clean the house. Further it was reported by the Kaleej Times that his agreeable nature had left her life a “hell”.
The lady was reported to have also said that she longed for a day of dispute. Her husband was reported to have told the court “it’s not fair to judge a marriage from the first year, and everybody learns from their mistakes”. It is reported that the court ordered an adjournment to allow an opportunity for reconciliation.
Our comment – what a nice problem to have and one which we rarely see in practise! We hope this couple are able to sensibly resolve their differences and have a happy life together.
