A Case for Divorce


Myself By T.V. Antony Raj


Divorce decree

There are thousands of reasons for requesting a divorce.

There have been cases where either the husband or the wife was found ‘too shy’ to consummate their marriage.

A veiled Sudi woman

Though it may seem bizarre, in a village near the southwestern city of Khamis Mushayt, located east of Abha, in Saudi Arabia, a 50-year-old woman, shrouded forever after the native tradition, requested a divorce after 30 years of marriage.


Because her husband tried to get a sneak view of her face by lifting her veil as she slept.

We often come across instances like an 83-year-old woman divorcing her 81-year-old husband after 60 years of marriage for having sex with his 30-years-younger mistress at work.

Even a sloppy, slovenly wife “fed up” with a ‘spick-and-span’ husband, cleaning anything and everything all the time, can find a reason for divorcing her husband.

However, the following anecdote I read on the net fascinated me and I thin it is undoubtedly a case for divorce.

Last week was my birthday. When I woke up, my wife did not wish me nor did my children.

I expected my parents to call and wish me. But my phone did not ring.

I went to work and surprisingly not a single colleague wished me.

As I entered my cabin, muttering invectives and silently cursing all, I heard the sweet melodious voice of Jane, my secretary, say, “Happy Birthday Boss!”

Her greeting made me feel special. Elated, I asked her to join me for lunch.

After lunch, Jane coyly said she had a surprise gift for me and invited me to her apartment.

When we entered her apartment Jane made me sit on the comfortable sofa cum bed in the sitting room. She gave me a bewitching smile and winked at me and said, “Relax! Let me freshen up and change into something simple and more comfortable! Be ready for a shock!” She went to her bedroom.

After about ten minutes there was a high-pitched scream from the bedroom. It somewhat sounded like “SURPRISE!

Jane came out wearing a simple nightie, holding a birthday cake in her hands, followed by my wife, my parents, my two children, a few of my friends and my colleagues.

Happy Birthday Cake

And I was sitting there on the sofa… NAKED!
