Married Woman Files For Divorce Because Husband Does Too Much Housework

An Egyptian bride is attempting to divorce her husband because he doesn’t let her do any of the housework. The bride in question, 28-year-old Samar, has accused her 31-year-old husband, Mohammad, of restricting her freedoms and giving her nothing to do at home. According to Oddity Central, Samar is left sitting at home while Mohammad “acts like a housewife,” cleaning their home, rearranging furniture, making meals and washing clothes.

When Samar tried to help her husband with the household chores, she says that he gets angry with her and tells her to sit back down. Before marrying Samar, Mohammad owned his own business and spent most of his time working. However, after getting married to Samar, Mohammad began sub-contracting out most of his work responsibilities so he could stay at home and do all the chores.

The bizarre situation has left Samar feeling controlled and underappreciated. “We’ve been married for just two weeks, I’ve known and loved him for over 2 years but I hate living with him and can no longer handle his actions,” Samar said during an interview with Egyptian news website Masrawy.
While talking to Masrawy, Samar spoke extensively about her husband’s odd mannerisms:

“My husband is a housewife. He doesn’t let me touch anything in our house and does all the cooking, cleaning and general household chores,” she said. “He controls everything in our house, and I have no say in anything, not even where he puts the TV set. Even though he owns his own business, he hired people to manage it, in order for him to stay at home, while I sit and watch.

He is the ‘woman of the house’ and I’m hating my life with him. We’ve been only married for two weeks, and he is either cooking or doing the laundry because he knows how to sort the washable clothes by color. He then irons the clothes, sweeps, and arranges the food in the fridge,” Samar complained. “I sit down watching him all day while he moves stuff around looking very happy.”

After trying to confront her husband about his domineering attitude, Mohammad angrily told his wife that she could only live in his house if “she followed his rules.”

After numerous attempts to talk with her husband, Samar has decided to divorce the Egyptian businessman. “My husband did not give me the freedom to handle my home affairs, I feel like a guest in a hotel,” emphasized Samar.

To successfully divorce her husband, Samar will have to seek ‘khula’, an Islamic law that allows Muslim women to divorce their husband. The khula procedure means that Samar will have to give Mohammad back the dowry (‘mahr’ in Arabic) she received after marrying him.

At this stage, the Egyptian public seems to have sided with Samar. The case is currently being deliberated by the Family Court in New Cairo and a decision will likely be reached in the coming weeks.
