More than just adultery, this is 'exceptional depravity'
by Chong Shin Yen

HE WAS often home when his wife returned with a man, took him to her room and closed the door.

Suspecting that his wife of one year-plus was committing adultery, the man secretly installed a camera inside her bedroom.

It captured her having sex with her lover.

The husband, 33, applied to divorce his wife, 29, and submitted the video footage as evidence.

In granting the divorce earlier this month, the judge found that what the wife had done was “more than just a case of adultery”.

Said District Judge Angelina Hing: “(This) is a case of exceptional depravity on the part of the wife.”

The judge had no doubt the husband had suffered exceptional hardship because his wife did not try to conceal her adulterous acts.

“To see his wife bring home a man and have him come and go as he pleased, in the husband’s words, ‘like I was totally transparent’ and to actually view the images of his wife having sex with the man is, in my view, exceptional hardship,” the judge said.

The husband, who is now unemployed, was so devastated that he was observed to be “significantly depressed”, according to a report from the Institute of Mental Health dated Feb 9 this year.

The court heard that the couple got married on July 23, 2008. But there was little marital bliss and they often quarrelled over money.

The husband claimed his wife, who has a polytechnic diploma, refused to look for a job after 2007.

Instead, she ran an Internet business from home, selling old items through an auction and shopping website. It was not clear exactly how long they knew each other before they got married.

The husband said that in early September last year, she left their home without a word and later SMSed him to say she wanted a divorce.

The wife denied this, claiming that she merely said she wanted a separation.

Less than two weeks later, on Sept 14, she returned home, but slept in a separate bedroom in their three-room flat.

The court heard that after returning to the flat, the wife started to bring a man home regularly, even when the husband was around. She would take the man into her room and close the door.

As a result, the husband became depressed and could not concentrate on his work as a driver.

He did not go to work for four days in a row and was later dismissed by his employers.

After confiding in his sister, he decided to install a camera in his wife’s bedroom.

The video footage confirmed that his wife was having sex with the man in the room.
