A 30-year-old Emirati woman has filed for divorce from her husband "who is gay and secretly dresses in women's clothes".
The woman's mother produced a woman's wig in the Sharjah Sharia Court of First Instance on Wednesday as proof that her son-in-law is a cross-dresser.
The mother has claimed that her 5-year-old grandson suffers from psychological problems as a result of his father's behaviour.
According to the mother, her son-in-law and his brother are gays and wear women's clothes and put on make-up and wigs at home.
She claimed her son-in-law also shaves his eyebrows. "My grandson will be affected as a result of this kind of immoral behaviour," she said.
She said her daughter wants a divorce because she was sure that her husband is homosexual. In one instance, the man took his son for camping with his friends, after which the boy was scared, she claimed.
She went to the social affairs department and complained about the "dangerous situation" the boy was in.
During the court hearing, the mother shouted at her son-in-law - who was standing behind the stand - and accused him of being a gay.
The man said the divorce will cause pain and confusion to his son.
To this, the grandmother said the child is supposed to be brought up according to religious morals and traditions. "He needs a better environment to grow up in," she said.
The wife said in court that a few months after they got married, the husband began to "behave oddly" and she saw him wear her lingerie and using her perfume.
After finding out that "he was cheating on her with another man", she informed her mother, who advised that they go for a divorce. The man, however, refused to do so and "continued having a relationship with his lover".
His mother-in-law claimed that his lover is also married and has children. "My daughter suffered a lot in marriage. The child has seen already violence. I just want the boy to grow up in a suitable environment."
