AKELANTANESE man, who was al­legedly slashed by his wife af­ter telling her of his in­ten­tion to marry an­other, said there is more to the story.

The man, 55, be­lieved he was not at­tacked be­cause he wanted to marry an­other woman, but be­cause he had lied to his wife.

The man, who works at the Kuala Krai Dis­trict Coun­cil of­fice, said his wife had con­sented to him mar­ry­ing an­other two weeks ago.

The other woman is a Thai na­tional, whom he had known for sev­eral years.

How­ever, he said, all hell broke loose when his wife caught him ly­ing dur­ing a con­ver­sa­tion at their home in Kam­pung Manik Urai Lama, Kuala Krai.

“My wife found out that I had gone out in se­cret to meet the woman one night. To test my hon­esty, she asked me where I went.

“I lied and told her that I went to watch a foot­ball match.

“That was when all hell broke loose. She re­alised that I had cheated on her and ran amok. She grabbed a knife and at­tacked me.”

The cou­ple have been mar­ried for more than 30 years and have six chil­dren.

The man said he did not blame his wife for at­tack­ing him.

“It was my fault. I will give her space be­fore I de­cide on mar­ry­ing the other woman.”

The man re­ceived 15 stitches on the head as a re­sult of the at­tack.

No re­port was lodged over the in­ci­dent as the cou­ple have since rec­on­ciled.
