In a bizarre case, a woman is divorcing her husband in Dubai because he charged her almost £100 every time she asked for a lift.
Interestingly, the woman is the household’s sole breadwinner and pays the bills because her husband is unemployed and cannot hold down a job.
Al Bayan newspaper said that since she doesn't yet have her own car, she relied on her husband for rides after work.
But she was stunned when she asked him to drive her somewhere and he asked her to pay for it.
Believing it to be a one-off, she paid him – but was horrified when he demanded 500 dirhams (£97.63) for every ride.
He told her it was because the time he spent chauffeuring her was keeping him from his friends, she said.
The woman decided to stop asking for rides from him and filed for divorce last month....
