Wife in UAE seeks divorce because husband loves her a lot, doesn't argue with her
He even cooked for her and helped her with household chores.
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 sought divorce from her husband at the Shariah court in Fujairah because his love was too much for her to bear.
"He never yelled at me or turned me down," the woman, a Gulf national, told the court.
"I was choked by extreme love and affection. He even helped me clean the house."
He sometimes cooked for her and there were no disputes in their year-long marriage, she said.
The wife 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."
The husband said he did nothing wrong. "I wish to be a perfect and kind husband," he said.
She once complained about his weight, so he went on a strict diet and exercised to get back in shape, only to suffer a fracture in the leg for his efforts.
The husband asked the court to advise his wife to withdraw the case.
"It's not fair to judge a marriage from the first year, and everybody learns from their mistakes."
The court ordered the adjournment of the case to give the couple a chance at reconciliation.
