A woman says she is "choked by extreme love and affection" in her marriage and, as a result, wants to call it quits.
A wife is seeking a divorce because of her husband's abundance of love. According to Saudi publication Khaleej Times, the woman moved in a Shariah court in Fujairah a bid to divorce her husband because he is too kind. She says his love is too much for her to bear.
The woman, who is a Gulf national, told the court the man never yelled at her or turned her down in their year-long marriage life.
"I was choked by extreme love and affection. He even helped me clean the house. I long for one day of dispute, but this seems impossible with my romantic husband who always forgave me and showered me with gifts. I need a real discussion, even an argument, not this hassle-free life of obedience," she said.
In his defence, the man said he has always wished for a happy marriage that would give him the chance to be a good and kind husband.
He went ahead to plead with the court to advise his wife to withdraw the case: "It is not fair to judge a marriage from the first year, and everybody learns from their mistakes," he pleaded.
His plea worked, as the court ordered the adjournment of the case to give the couple a chance at reconciliation.
