UAE husband kind, loving, affectionate. Wife wants divorce.

Because enough is enough.

A woman in the UAE is seeking a divorce because her husband’s ‘extreme love’ sees him help with the housework and shower her with gifts.  She told a Sharia court in Fujairah that her spouse never argued or yelled at her and was always kind. The woman told the court: ‘I am choked by his extreme love and affection.  He even assisted me in cleaning the house without me asking him.’

But despite his affection, the woman claimed her life was ‘hell’ due to his ‘cruel-free treatment’, according to the English language UAE newspaper, Khaleej Times.  She  complains that ‘his love and compassion are so over the top’ and she filed for a split.

According to reports, the woman said the couple never had an argument and the husband did not shout at her during their year-long marriage.  When she complained about his weight, the man even went on a strict regime of dieting and exercise which left him with a broken leg.

But this still did not please the angry wife who still complained of her spouse’s many gifts and compliments, according to local media.  She added: ‘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 begged the court to deny the divorce request.  He told the court: ‘It’s not fair to judge a marriage from the first year, and everybody learns from their mistakes. I am and always wish to be a perfect and kind husband.’ The court ordered an adjournment of the case to give the couple a chance to settle the dispute themselves.

Under Sharia law, the husband faces a punishment of a public flogging if convicted of extreme kindness and affection.  One Sharia expert noted that “this is why you have to give your wife – or your camel, if you don’t have a wife – a good slap every now and then.”
