The world knows many cases of divorcing over a sexless marriage, but divorcing over too much sex? You don’t hear that one every day.
One man has been recently granted a divorce by a Mumbai family court because he could no longer deal with his wife’s “excessive and insatiable desire for sex.”
“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,” Principal Judge of family court, Laxmi Rao ruled in a recent order.
The husband went to family court back in January, claimingthat his wife was “adamant, aggressive, stubborn and autocratic” and would pick up quarrels for no reason.
In his petition the tired husband also admitted that his wife was showing an “excessive and insatiable desire for sex” and harassed him since their marriage in April 2012.
The now-free man also told the court that she made him take medicines and also forced him to consume liquor.
The poor man went on, revealing that she often forced him into having unnatural sex and whenever he tried to resist it, she would abuse him following which he had to succumb to her pressure and persistent demands.
“He told the court that he worked in three shifts leaving him very tired, and even then he was compelled to satisfy her ‘lust’,” Times of India writes. “The woman even went to the extent of threatening him that if her demands are not fulfilled, she will go to another man, without caring for his emotions and feelings, the court was told.”
Back in December 2012 the abused husband was even hospitalised for a stomach ache during which she chose to go her sister’s place, only to return after two weeks, the petition reads.
Though doctors advised him to stay away from any physical relationship for a while, the wife wouldn’t refuse of having sex, even as his health deteriorated for lack of rest, the petition submitted.
Which is more, last fall he underwent surgery on appendicitis and after discharge his wife insisted that they stay with her sister and even there, she forced him into having intercourse.
According to him, his wife even “refused to visit a psychiatrist and threatened him against revealing anything to anybody.”
In the petition, the poor man noted that it was intolerable for him to bear any more atrocities and that he also apprehended danger to his life and limb.
He said his wife has made his life horrible with her “cruel behaviour” and her “excessive prank for sex” has made it difficult for him to live together with her under one roof.
Judge Rao allowed the petition and dissolved the man’s marriage.
