A family court in India has granted a man his petition for divorce. His reason? He can no longer keep up with his wife's maddening and insatiable demands for sex.
In his petition, the husband claimed his wife has an "excessive and insatiable desire for sex" and that she had harassed him into performing them since they got married in April 2012.
He maintained she was "adamant, aggressive, stubborn and autocratic" when it comes to their bedroom encounters, even to the point of starting quarrels for no reason at all.
The man, who first approached the family court in January, said his wife's sex urges were so crazy that she even demanded for them even if he had been hospitalised.
There were two instances that he had been hospitalised during their marriage, one in December 2012 due to stomach ache and another in October 2013 where he was operated for appendicitis.
He claimed that on both occasions, despite his physical condition, his wife demanded sex from him..
There were also countless times that his spouse threatened him she will go to another man to have her demands fulfilled.
Asked why he cannot sometimes fulfill his obligations to his wife, the man explained to the court he works in three shifts, thus leaving him very tired. But despite his fatigue from work, his wife continued to demand sex.
In the course of their marriage, he had advised his wife to seek medical professional help. But his wife refused and threatened him against revealing anything of their bedroom encounters to anybody.
Ultimately, the husband said in his petition that he can no longer keep up with his wife's demands, and that he likewise fear danger to his life.
Principal Judge of Family Court Laxmi Rao heeded the man's petition and dissolved his marriage because the wife was a no-show during court hearings.
"Due to respondent's (wife's) non-appearance before the court, the petitioner's (husband's) evidence remains unchallenged on record. Hence this court has no option but to accept his evidence as it is and he is entitled to a decree of divorce as prayed," Rao ruled in his order.
