Wife insists she's not trying to provoke husband
by Chong Shin Yen

The wife did not deny this, but insisted through her lawyer that she was not trying to provoke her husband.

She claimed that every time she brought her lover home, she thought her husband would either be out or in his own room, and so would not notice what they were up to.

She said her husband was possessive.

She stopped working as a sales assistant in 2007 because he didn’t like her to have contact with many people.

According to her, she had left their flat after a quarrel over his insisting on having sex even when she was tired and ill.

She said she moved back in because she wanted to salvage the marriage and give her husband another chance. Through her lawyer, the wife indicated that she was willing to attempt to reconcile with her husband and has since left the third party.

But Judge Hing slammed the woman over the way she had treated her husband.
She said: “Bringing a man to the matrimonial flat where her husband was residing is a blatant disregard for his feelings and the marriage. She did not try to conceal her adulterous acts in any way.”

The wife’s explanations cut no ice with Judge Hing, who accepted the husband’s assertion that his wife’s actions were done to provoke him.

She said: “It was a modest three-room HDB flat...Is it possible that he would not notice a man walking in and around the house and spending time with his wife in the next room behind closed doors?”

Judge Hing added that although the wife claimed she was prepared to reconcile with her husband, there was no evidence of any effort for this on her part.

The husband had said through his lawyer, Mr Tan Cheng Kiong, that he was devastated and had lost all hope or desire for reconciliation.

The husband added that he was mentally tortured by his wife’s wanton behaviour and was unable to concentrate on his daily activities.

He had to see a doctor for anti-depressants.

The wife’s lawyer submitted that there was no medical evidence to suggest the husband was suffering from any psychiatric condition.

To that, Judge Hing said: “The effect of (exceptional hardship) was apparent...If he was resilient enough not to lose his mind, that surely should not be used against him.”

This itchy front was not trying to provoke her husband but to prove a few points.
1. She can find better man than the husband.
2. She thinks she had spiritual power to be invisible.
3. She thinks the husband is both deaf and blind.
4. She wants to make the husband jealous???

No need to wonder my friend. She had been too busy looking for an alternative. when she found that man, she was not free to do so because she had a busy sex schedule to keep.

Hmm... I just wonder why the wife didn't want to look for a job? :confused:

"This woman is just a slut and lazy to get a job" is ok not to look for a job as long as the husband is able n willing...

".. PRCs are always outrightly seduce and snatch people's husband when the couple is still loving together "...if the couple is way a 3rd party can seduce the husband away..
