Wife Demands $12M over Husband's Refusal to Eat the Forbidden Fruit

    ngurecoposted 7 years ago

    A man in Dubai, a city with conservative Arab values, is in trouble for refusing to sleep with his wife for four months of their marriage. The wife is demanding $12M from him for refusing to eat the forbidden fruit.

    If women were to keep on demanding such huge amounts from their husbands for failing to fulfill their needs, will our men ever agree to marry? And can husbands also demand compensation from wives who fail to fulfill their needs?

    Goes to show a prime example of how certain cultures can be more ignorant and less evolved. Nothing new I guess. hmm

      Please, what does culture have to do with it. The guy refused to sleep with her for four months. If it was say a western culture you might argue the guy is impotant. Why, here, the ignorant and less evolved angle. As for the 12 million, may be his loaded and can afford much more than that, certainly rock bottom price for Hollywood actresses who break up with their hubbies.

        Well, the woman's nationality is unclear from the information provided.

        If you have to ask that question, then I suggest you learn about the culture. It's not an equal culture and never has been. It's male dominated, do as I say, not as I do. So please.
        If he refuses to sleep with, then there must be a reason for his action. Him being impotent? It could be the reason.
        It's a religious based culture. Therefore it is ignorant and less evolved.
        This actually has nothing to do with actresses and their husbands, but nice try at creating distortion.

    It's probably her reaction to a number of selfish things he does, and this was the final straw. She probably isn't expecting to get any money, just wanted to publicly shame him for the world to see. I LOVE HER! hahaha
