Bhopal: A 23-year-old woman from Madhya Pradesh has filed for divorce, claiming that her husband shunned shaving and bathing for almost a week at a stretch.

The couple, who married last year, was directed by a Bhopal family court to stay separately for six months, after which they would be granted divorce decree, a counsellor said.

"Bhopal family court judge R N Chand has directed the couple to stay separately for six months," said court counsellor Shail Awasthi on Friday.

The woman and her 25-year-old husband filed a mutual consent plea for divorce, Awasthi said.

She said in her complaint that her husband didn't shave his beard and bathe for seven-eight days at a stretch.

"Women nowadays are separating from their husband over petty issues. This woman, who hails from Barigarh near Bhopal, complained that her husband stinks and when she asks him to bathe, he wears perfume to beat the odour," Awasthi said.

The man is from Sindhi community and runs a shop and the woman is a Brahmin, Awasthi said, adding they don't have a child. The woman's family members had requested her not to walk out of the martial bond but she did not agree, the counsellor said.

It was an arranged marriage and the mans family opted for the inter-community wedding as they did not find a suitable bride in their community, Awasthi said.

In 2016, a 36-six-year-old cleric from Meerut in Uttar Pradesh had claimed that his wife demanded that he should shave or else she would commit suicide.
