In a recent incident reported from Uttar Pradesh, a man from Aligarh has sought divorce from his wife as she does not have bath every day. The issue came to light after wife filed a complaint with women protection cell, in a bid to save her marriage. Subsequently, the couple is now being provided counselling by the Aligarh Women Protection Cell.
Here’s What Happened
The woman who belongs to Kwarsi village, has been married to the man from Chandaus village since past two years. The couple also has a one-year-old child.
A counsellor working with the Women Protection Cell, told News18,
A woman gave us a written complaint stating that her husband has given her triple talaq on the pretext of not bathing every day. We are providing counselling to the couple and their parents to save their marriage.
The counsellor added,
The man, during counselling, repeatedly and firmly told us that he wants to end terms with the woman. He also gave an application to us to help him get a divorce from his wife as she does not bathe every day.
The man, in his petition, told the Women Protection Cell that they have a verbal spat every day after he asks his wife to take a bath. The counsellor said,
We are trying to counsel the man to not break his marriage with his wife as it is a minor issue and which can be solved. We are also trying to make him understand that their divorce can also affect the upbringing of their child.
The Women Protection Cell has given time to the couple to think about saving their relationship.
In a reverse case reported from Bihar in January 2020, a 20-yr-old woman sought divorce as husband avoided regular shave and bath. State women’s commission (SWC) listened to Soni Devi’s complaint & asked husband Manish Ram (23) to mend his ways within 2-months, else, commission would take appropriate action.
