An expat woman in Dubai was granted divorce after she complained that her husband had sex with her and his first wife at the same time, the UAE-based newspaper Gulf News reported.
The unidentified woman said in her divorce claim that she could not service her husband’s “abnormal and unacceptable sexual wishes,” according to the newspaper.
The second wife reportedly satisfied her husband’s sexual requests for the first few weeks of the marriage, thinking that his desire for her would soon decrease, said an anonymous source quoted by the newspaper.
However, even after giving birth, her husband’s “tentative desire became permanent,” and he still made her sleep with him and his first wife in the same bed, an arrangement that the first wife did not seem to mind.
The woman then decided that her husband’s sexual demands “went beyond the extreme” and decided to divorce him, the source said.
At the start of the woman’s marriage, she did not protest having to move into her husband’s marital home which he shared with his first wife, thinking that her stay there would only be temporary.
The husband, who is from a wealthy business family, told his second wife that he was building a separate house for her, court records said. However, the house was never completed.
The court allowed the woman a divorce and ordered the ex-husband to pay alimony to his child in addition to an allowance to the woman and her baby.
