In a landmark case in Taiwan, a husband successfully divorced his wife for her allegedly terrible hygiene.
The now ex-wife, identified only by her surname Lin, reportedly bathed only once a year and brushed her teeth or washed her hair only when she felt like it, according to Taipei Times.
On Thursday, the unnamed plaintiff got his petition for divorce granted by the New Taipei City District Court after claiming psychological torture caused by Lin’s unsanitary habits. The husband noted that when they were still going out, she only took showers once a week. While he was able to accept such behavior, he was disappointed that her habits got worse after their marriage.
Initially put off for one month at a time, her bath schedules became even rarer as their relationship went on. Lin’s unhygienic habits prevented the couple from having children for a decade as they only had sex once a year.
