It is true that too much of a good thing is bad. But it is also widely accepted that every rule has an exception. Therefore, too much of certain things shouldn’t be harmful, right? Or are they? For an unidentified woman living in the Gulf, an overabundance of love and kindness has become an issue. A major issue that has prompted her to go to court!
According to News18, a wife in the UAE has moved the Shariah court in Fujairah to file a divorce. Her reason? She claims that in one year of married life, she hasn’t had a single argument with her husband. Her life is akin to “hell” because he is too kind!
She was quoted saying,
“He never yelled at me or turned me down. I was choked by extreme love and affection. He even helped me clean the house. 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.”
As for the husband, he is at a complete loss wondering what he did wrong. Because he didn’t! He requested that the matter be adjourned and also stated that when his wife complained about his weight gain, his consequent exercise regimen resulted in a fracture. Khaleej Times quoted him saying,
“I wish to be a perfect and kind husband. It’s not fair to judge a marriage from the first year, and everybody learns from their mistakes.”
The court has asked the couple to reconcile their differences or lack thereof.
