Malaysian wife sues husband over lost virginity
Demands $1 million compensation
A Malaysian woman is suing her husband for nearly a million dollars over the loss of her virginity, a report said Friday.
The New Straits Times said the 30-year-old teacher is claiming 3.0 million ringgit (941,000 dollars) in damages for false promises over their marriage, which collapsed after her in-laws disapproved.
It said the pair consummated their relationship after dating for a few months, then legally registered their marriage, but they never went through the customary Chinese marriage rites.
"What she has is a marriage on paper only. It's not the kind we all know and the kind all women want. It's a marriage obtained by misrepresentation," her lawyer, Ernest Chua, told the daily.
The in-laws began pressuring their son to divorce, according to the bride, who named them in the suit for "inducing their son to breach the contract of marriage" and for causing her "humiliation and mental torture."
The woman has also asked the court to declare the marriage null and void.
