Man wins divorce from wife 'too shy' to sleep with him
Monday, Feb 12, 2007, Page 2
A Tainan court has granted a man's request for divorce because his wife was "too shy" to consummate their marriage, a newspaper said yesterday.
The man surnamed Chen (Â), a 38-year-old teacher from Tainan County was introduced to a woman surnamed Lin (Ñ), 29, also a teacher, by a matchmaker.
After the couple dated for three months, they married a year ago, but Lin refused to consummate the marriage, the Chinese-language daily China Times reported.
On the wedding night, Lin slept fully dressed and wrapped with a quilt, the daily said, without citing any sources.
When Chen tried to sleep with her, the report said, she pushed him away shouting: "You are ridiculous!"
The next morning Lin returned to her mother's home saying she was ill, and would not live with her husband again, the paper said.
Through the matchmaker's mediation, Lin signed a contract agreeing to consummate the marriage but only for the purpose of procreation, and demanded to sleep separately.
However, she did not live up to the pledge, the paper said.
In June, Chen filed for divorce with the Tainan District Court. Lin contested the divorce, claiming that she refused to consummate the marriage on the wedding night because she was too tired and was ill.
But the judge said it was strange for Lin to refuse to consummate the marriage for one year, so he granted the divorce on Saturday and ruled that Lin must compensate Chen NT$300,000 for buying an apartment, giving Lin's family a dowry and losing face because she did not consummate the marriage.
I think I can hear Rodney Dangerfield tight now.
Dude, that's Henny Youngman you hear.
"My wife cut me down to one time a month. I guess I shouldn't feel so bad because she cut off the other two guys completely."
Maybe he was being too demanding. Probably a Taipei personality.
"I got in a cab the other night. I asked the driver to take some place where I could get some action. He took me to my house!"
I cannot make a final determination until I see what this guy looks like.... LOL!
These days I'm satisfied if I can get into a tight parking space.
With my dog I don't get no respect. He keeps barking at the front door. He don't want to go out. He wants me to leave.
What a dog I got. His favorite bone is in my arm!
Last week I saw my psychiatrist. I told him, "Doc, I keep thinking I'm a dog." He told me to get off his couch.
I worked in a pet store and people kept asking how big I'd get.
My wife and I were happy for twenty years. Then we met.
I'll tell ya, my wife and I, we don't think alike. She donates money to the homeless, and I donate money to the topless!
One night I came home. I figured, let my wife come on. I'll play it cool. Let her make the first move. She went to Florida.
I asked my old man if I could go ice-skating on the lake. He told me, "Wait til it gets warmer."
Bump for later read.
"My mother didn't breast feed me, she told me that she liked me as a friend."
"I figured I would walk my dog to pick up girls. Turns out my dog was using me to pick up other dogs."
Chen, better check "her" hardware there.
Just before he died I remember him saying as he was admitted to the hospital, "If things go well, I'll be out in two weeks, if they don't, I'll be out in two hours."
Maybe this guy should rent "The Crying Game."
You mean this isn't normal....?
I come home from work and there's a guy running naked in front of my house. I asked, why are you running naked in front of my house? He said, because you came home early!
I hate myself for laughing at that, and you should be ashamed.
All night, or just formosa the night?
I think someone should have explained to her what "consummate" meant before she signed the contract. *chuckle*
