UP woman seeks divorce as husband ‘doesn’t fight’ with her, says he loves her ‘too much’


Guwahati: A woman in Sambhal district of Uttar Pradesh has sought a divorce from her husband just 18 months after her marriage. She has approached the Sharia court in Sambhal to seek a divorce, leaving the court puzzled. Why? Her husband loves her too much and does not fight with her.

According to a report in Hindi daily Dainik Jagran, the woman said she could not digest her husband’s “too much” love for her. The woman said she has never had a fight with her husband in the past 18 months and she was “fed up”.

The woman said her husband even helps her in cooking and performing household chores. “Neither he [husband] ever shouted at me nor he ever disappointed me over any issue. I am feeling suffocated in such an environment,” the report quoted her as saying.

“Whenever I make a mistake, he always forgives me for that. I wanted to argue with him,” she said.

She says she does not want a life where her husband agrees to everything.

The cleric of the Sharia court was baffled when he heard the reason for the divorce and rejected her plea, terming it as frivolous.

The cleric also asked the woman if she had any other reason for the divorce. To which, she responded in negative. After the cleric refused to decide on the plea, a local panchayat heard the matter. But it also refused to give a ruling.

He also appealed to the Sharia court to ask her wife to take back the case, following which the court rejected her plea. The Sharia court has asked the couple to resolve the matter by themselves.
