Taiwanese man divorces his wife: Reason she only baths once a year!

Taipei, January 11: Personal hygiene is an important aspect of our lives and one should never neglect it as that can even put an end to your relationship.

Confused? Well, this actually turned out to be a true story for a Taiwanese lady.

According to Taipei Times, a Taiwanese man filed for divorce arguing that, among other problems, his wife’s reluctance to take a shower was preventing them from starting a family.

He claimed that he had suffered psychological torture from her bad personal hygiene. But, that is not all, he also shared that her wife did not brush her teeth or wash her hair regularly as well.

In the beginning, the husband said that she wasn’t that bad. When they were dating, she would bath once a week but after they got married, things got worse.

After they tied the knot, her personal hygiene habits gradually grew worse to the point that a decade later, bathing was just a once in a year and it would take her six hours.

He also alleged that his wife discouraged him from having a job and the couple was unemployed while living with her parents. He was forced to rely on his mother-in-law for their living expenses.

Finally, in late 2015, the man decided to move out of the house and found a job in Hsinchu, but did not tell his wife. After a month, she found that he was working and demanded that he quit his job, but he refused and the man decided to file for divorce.

The woman vehemently denied her husbands accusations, but, after hearing the case, the court agreed that the couple’s differences were irreconcilable. Noting that they had already been separated for two years, the court granted the divorce.

More than 50,000 Taiwanese marriages end in divorce each year, some for better reasons than others.

Back in 2014, one man made headlines after filing to divorce his wife because she had become so addicted to her smartphone that she neglected to do household chores or take care of the kids, while, last year, a woman divorced her husband for ignoring her messages on the social media app Line, providing evidence of that fact in court.
