Istanbul man chooses dog over wife in divorce case
A man in Istanbul has chosen the option of divorce after his wife gave him the ultimatum: It’s either me or the dog.
The case emerged after the woman objected to her husband’s bringing back of a dog and a parrot to their apartment in Istanbul earlier this year, the Sabah newspaper reported.
“We have a baby at home. We can’t take care of these animals too,” she reportedly told her husband.
After the man refused to get rid of the animals, his wife moved into her parents’ apartment. After waiting for two months to see whether her husband would change his mind, she reportedly filed for divorce.
Stating that her husband “harmed her psychology,” she demanded 100,000 Turkish Liras in compensation as well a monthly alimony for herself and her child.
The legal case is continuing.
