Mysuru: Husband divorces wife for providing instant noodles for all meals


Daijiworld Media Network – Mysuru (MS)

Mysuru, May 28: A man who was sick of eating instant noodles for breakfast, lunch and dinner, provided by his wife, divorced her.

Justice M L Raghunath, judge of chief district and session court, spoke about the trivial matters over which couples are getting divorced nowadays.

Justice Raghunath said that this peculiar case came to his knowledge when he was serving as district judge at Ballari. In his complaint, a man said, “Except instant noodles, my wife does not know how to cook any other dish. If she goes to provision stores, she brings only instant noodles.” This case was named the Maggie case. After hearing the arguments of both husband and wife finally divorce was granted on mutual consent.  

 

Justice Raghunath said, “It is difficult to resolve marital issues. If the couple consider the future of their children, reuniting is possible. Most of the time emotional issues wreck a marriage. Most of the time, even if the couple decide to live together, the mental scars continue lifelong. Out of 800 to 900 marital cases we get success only in 20 or 30 cases.

“Divorces are increasing by leaps and bounds in recent times. There is a law that the couple should live together for at least a year before applying for divorce. Otherwise, most couples would have approached court for divorce directly from the marriage hall. There are cases pending in court where the couple have applied for divorce on the next day of marriage.

“Divorce is sought by couples for silly reasons like not speaking to spouse, placing salt on the wrong side of the plate, wrong stitching of wedding suit, not taking wife out for leisure etc. We find divorce cases equally in both love and arranged marriages.

“Most of the divorce applications are from people living in urban areas. In rural areas gram panchayats intervene and resolve the issue. There is no independence for women in villages. Their fear about society and the emotions towards their families force them to continue in marriages. However, in cities women are educated and self-reliant. So they do not hesitate to apply for divorce,” he said.

    Thank God she didn't feed him poison. Instead of helping her cook he is complaining that she doesn't know to cook, you are not running a hotel you are living in a family. Remember doing Laundry cooking or washing dishes isn't just a women's job

    In this case he should have cooked for her for some months, taught her cooking. This is a stupid reason for Divorce. He could also keep a Maid for cooking. So this shows that he got married so he gets a free cook.

    In the first place, did this man marry her to share his life with her, to treat her with love and respect and equality? It looks like he needed a cook and not a wife. Come on man, treat your wife as your equal and not as your unpaid servant. The judge ought to have punished him with a heavy penalty as a lesson for all men of similar mentalty.

    As k.b.r mangalore said ,why you need wife if you have to eat noodels all the time.I ask why do you marry a girl only to cook or lookafter your house hold and rare children ?No I understand all the time to eat noodels also not a option.I too would hate it.Strange she never knew to cook or never cooked.I myself prefer to eat home food than Hotel .You marry a partner to give company and to raise a family .When one doesnt know cooking other one can try to teach or send her to classes.Not divorce.Kerala men cook mostly ,do grocery .kindly dont mistake here you have awife only to cook or do househalt .Just see in her as your life partner for good or bad days.

    A twist in the stereo type assumption of cooking is the primary job of females- during lockdowns many jobless or working from home husbands joined their wife in kitchen for first time. There is another interesting story of a multinational direct marketing company which introduced the most innovative cooking vessels and as this business is carried out by both the partners both attended training classes and both joined in the kitchen to cook and film the cooking dishes as its fun filled experience to demonstrate to the prospective customers now more husbands are enjoying the task. Another welcome development due to this business requirements drop in divorce rates in west were reported in those couples who worked together in building this business.

    Joke of the century : she must have actually wanted him to go away because the marriage must have taken place by force. He must have been repeatedly telling her that he dint like Maggie. To throw him out she did it 😀😀😀.Anyways will wish them All the very Best.

    A wife or a husband is a most precious gift God has given to us. It is silly to divorce a wife in such a trivial matter like above. If she wants noodles everyday, she can have it, but she should learn to cook food to husband's taste. If both are working, it is the responsibility of both to cook the food according to the taste of both. If he could afford, he could have kept a full time or part time cook. Husband and wife are coming from entirely different families, hence both have to adjust. Love, unity, honesty and selflessness are essential among spouses. Being there to lean on, and leaning on your spouse when you need to, that's one of the best things about marriage.

    It is a well known observation that a coin has two sides ! What do we know about the behaviour of the husband? Perhaps he was an abusive, a drunk or perhaps uncaring etc. so the wife devised a very clever strategy that is: to cook the same “stuff” over and over again and feeding him ! It was a carefully planned and civilized way to getting him out of her marriage . No violence . Because the divorce is initiated by the husband, she is on solid grounds to seek alimony🤫 🤗! So never underestimate a woman!🤭 Congratulations!

    k b r mangalore ,why should only wife should cook ?For a change husband can also cook once ,or teach her when she doesnt know .In India ,mothers make a mistake of not teaching mostly boys or husband in the kitchen to come.Better they know atleast a egg Omlett to make .Even one should be ready to learn instead of divorcing .Or he could have sent her for a cooking classes.I am sure it was only a excuse to get rid of wife.

    ½ ½ = 1.......means two partners marry and they become 1. This husbands lapet ....means saying lies. If he wants to eat varieties of food, he too can extend helping hand when she cooks alone. She must be working lady like him. She has to look after all the house/go to work and expect from her tasty and variety of food. He had some setting/Stepney....So ...Why he didn't appoint international chef ?.... Men, please do not marry if you people have hatred/enemity/bad opinion about women.
