A bizarre case has opened as a 20-year-old woman from India filed for divorce from her husband for being stinky.
20-year-old woman from Vaishali district has sought divorce claiming that her husband stinks as he does not shave, take bath and brush his teeth regularly. She also complained that her husband doesn’t follow etiquette and manners.
Woman belonging to Bihar’s Vaishali district has claimed in her application that her 23-year-old husband, Manish Ram stinks “because he does not shave, take a bath or brush his teeth regularly,” Times of India reported on Saturday.
Taking action on the complaint filed by Soni Devi, the State Women’s Commission (SWC) gave a two-month ultimatum to her husband to mend his ways or face the legal action for not complying with the orders.
SWC member Pratima Sinha said that the 20-year old petitioner approached the commission on
“I was taken aback by reasons that was cited for seeking divorce,” the official was quoted as saying.
In her petition, Soni said she married Manish, who is a plumber by profession, in 2017.
“My husband stinks as he does not shave and bathe for nearly 10 days at a stretch. Moreover, he doesn’t brush his teeth. He also doesn’t have manners and follow etiquette,” the petitioner alleged.
The SWC member said that Soni was adamant on separating from her husband.
“I don’t want to live with my husband anymore. I can no longer bear the humiliation. Kindly get me rid of this man … he has ruined my life,” the official quoted the petitioner as saying.
Soni’s husband, however, said he did not want a divorce and wanted to live with her, adding that he would try his best to improve his lifestyle and win over his wife’s confidence.
Because of this, the SWC gave a two-month ultimatum to Devi’s husband to change his ways or face legal action for not complying with the order.
