BBC NEWS | Middle East | Smelly divorce hits Iranian court

BBC NEWS | Middle East | Smelly divorce hits Iranian court: "An Iranian woman says she wants to divorce her husband because he has not washed for more than a year, according to a press report.

The 36-year-old woman, identified as Mina, reportedly told a court in Tehran that her husband smells so bad even their children will not go near him.

She said that when she met her husband eight years ago, he was obsessive about staying clean.

Women in Iran have fewer rights than men when it comes to getting divorced.

A woman normally has to prove that her husband has neglected her financially or sexually, is a drug addict or is physically abusive.

Mina reportedly told the divorce court the smell of her husband was so bad that it was making her family a laughing stock.

'We cannot go to any parties. I feel so ashamed,' she was quoted by Iran's state-run newspaper."

I wonder,has the "my husbands stinks" grounds for divorce worked in the Iranian courts before?

It reminds me of the divorce grounds in California back in the '60s.
