India: If one argument could save a marriage, this is it. But the fawning husband cooked, cleaned, swept and loved his wife passionately. Completely she in turn felt choked by his affection and now wants to divorce him.
The woman has approached a Sharia court for divorce just 18 months after her marriage. The woman claimed that her husband’s love was ‘suffocating’ her.
“He does not shout at me and neither has he upset me on any issue. He even cooks for me and also helps me in performing household chores” she told the court.
“He never yelled at me or turned me down, I was choked by extreme love and affection” she said.
She complained that her life turned ‘hell’ because the man was so kind to her.
“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” woman said.
She further said, “Whenever I make a mistake, he always forgives me for that. I wanted to argue with him. I do not need a life where the husband agrees to anything.”
The husband in response said he did nothing wrong, “I wish to be a perfect and kind husband” he said.
The husband asked the court to advise his wife to withdraw the case saying, “It’s not fair to judge a marriage from the first year, and everybody learns from their mistakes.”
The Sharia court cleric, expectedly rejected her plea for divorce, terming it as frivolous. When the Sharia court refused to grant her divorce, the woman took up the matter with the local panchayat which also expressed its inability to decide the issue.
Meanwhile, the husband said he loved his wife and always wanted to keep her happy. He also requested the Sharia court to return the case.
Those forced the court to adjourn the case to give the couple a chance of reconciliation.
