A 28-year-old Egyptian newlywed woman is seeking a divorce after only two weeks of marriage because her husband does all of the household chores, Egyptian news website Masrawy reported.
Her husband, 31, runs a successful clothing store, where he employs several staff members and is therefore able to spend most of his time at home.
The woman, Samar M., claims that her husband is acting like a housewife, and she has grown bored of him.
She eventually confronted her husband but said that he responded by saying that if she wanted to live in his house, she had to follow his rules.
Samar has filed a complaint in Family Court in New Cairo, saying, "My husband did not give me the freedom to handle my home affairs, I feel like a guest in a hotel."
She is seeking 'khula', a procedure through which a Muslim woman can divorce her husband by returning the dower that she received.
The case is pending before the court.
