A woman wants to di­vorce her hus­band be­cause she claims he in­fected her with a sex­u­ally trans­mit­ted dis­ease (STD).

The Arab woman filed a case at Al Ain Fam­ily Court, seek­ing to be sep­a­rated from the man af­ter he al­legedly slept with other women and gave her gon­or­rhoea.

The wife said she couldn’t risk be­ing in­fected with more se­ri­ous ill­nesses due to her hus­band’s in­fi­delity.

She told court of­fi­cials that she was happy with her hus­band in the first months of their mar­riage but the man later changed and he started to go out and re­turn home late at night.

She claims her hus­band had sex with other women.

“I had suf­fered from pains and I went to a hos­pi­tal for an ex­am­i­na­tion,” she said.

“The tests re­vealed that I was in­fected with gon­or­rhoea.

“My hus­band got the dis­ease from other women he slept with.”

The woman said she con­sulted her par­ents about what to do and her fa­ther ad­vised her to seek a di­vorce. By Is­mail Se­bug­waawo

“I want to be sep­a­rated from my hus­band be­cause he has been un­faith­ful to me,” said the wife.

“He in­fected me with gon­or­rhoea and I am afraid he may trans­mit other se­ri­ous STDs to me.”

The judge said they will hear from the woman’s hus­band be­fore a ver­dict is is­sued.

Lawyer and le­gal ad­viser Has­san Al Mar­zouki says the UAE Per­sonal Af­fairs law al­lows a spouse to seek di­vorce if they have ev­i­dence that proves that their part­ners have STDs.
