Wonders they say shall never end. An Indian man recently filed for divorce from his wife after he discovered that she had a beard and spoke like a man.
According to the Times of India, the husband had not seen his wife’s face before their wedding day because she wore a veil. He also did not speak to her because the ceremony was arranged through his in-laws.
The woman, who has not been named, also wore a veil during their wedding so he did not see her face until after they were married. Describing the moment he met her for the first time, he said: “When I saw her for the first time, she had make-up on.
After spending seven days with her, I went out of town for my job. After returning, I noticed she was growing a beard, and also realized that she sounds like a man.”
The wife admitted growing facial hair and having a deep voice because of hormonal issues but told the court that could be fixed with treatment.
Her family had paid a dowry to the man ahead of the wedding, she argued, and that alimony would have to be paid in the event of a split.
She also claimed she was physically and mentally abused and that her husband was citing false reasons for the divorce in an attempt to evict her from their house. A judge rejected the divorce application, saying the reasons given were not sufficient for a split.
