Crazy Weird divorce stories are nothing new, but this may be one of the strangest we have ever heard, in 2015 that is. A Bulawayo woman studying for a Doctorate in Philosophy (PHD) filed for a decree of divorce against her husband of 29 years claiming she was allegedly fed up with his incessant and loud snoring which she said was like “a roaring tractor tilling on dry land.”
In her summons filed at Bulawayo High court, Nhlalwenhle Blessed Tshuma claimed that her husband William Tshuma was depriving her of sleep with his snoring which is so disruptive that she had never enjoyed a single peaceful night’s sleep.
She also stated that her husband ‘s s heavy snoring was disturbing her reading and that of her children as she is undergoing a PhD program.
In her submissions Nhlalwenhle said their marriage was also punctuated by a prolonged s.ex dry spell as they had not shared conjugal rights for over a period of 10 years.
The couple was married in terms of Chapter 37 on 17 November 1986 and has three children.according to the application the plaintiff(Nhalawenhle) said the marriage had irretrievably broken down to such an extent that it cannot b restored as the two parties were now living like strangers under one roof with each one preparing his or her own meal.
the plaintiff also stated that she had lost love for her husband because he was emotionally and verbally abusing her.Nhlawenhle further stated that the defendant had never during their 29 years of marriage bought her anything like a dress despite the fact that she was buying him many clothes with some of them coming as birthday presents.
Apparently to make sure her husband consents to her plea,Nhlawenhle said upon granting of the divorce she would be in a better position to assist the defendant with his studies as he is the holder of a first degree,two masters degrees and currently pursuing PhD studies.
According to court indications the defendant had since received the summons.
