That’s A Wrap: Woman Divorces Her Husband For Refusing To Buy Her A Shawarma
After a mere 40 days of being married, a 30 year old Egyptian woman has decided to divorce her husband due his refusal to buy her a shawarma sandwich on their first date as a married couple.
Sameeha, the young woman spoke in front of the court in Zananiri saying that this was her last straw with her husband. Her and Ahmed got married after being together for only two months. This was not enough time to get to know him well know enough and see how cheap he really is.
Soon after their wedding, it became very clear how stingy he is. Ahmed apparently told his wife that they could not go out because it is a waste of money, she chose to ignore this but things continued to worsen. Sameeha explained to the judge that her husband despite having a well paying job, had a very cheap lifestyle even in terms of food. He would tell her to eat only macaroni and rice until the weekend.
The woman has also tried telling her family about her husband’s behavior but they instructed her to simply be patient, and that he would eventually change. Sadly, they were very wrong. After the shawarma incident, Sameeha understood that a divorce is what she needs.
Her husband accused her of using him to order sandwiches. She could not take this type of life anywhere and decided to return to living with her parents.
