A newlywed Iranian man whose wife acknowledges secretly drugging him so he wouldn’t hear her snore has filed for divorce.
But without the sleeping pills, the man told a judge, his wife’s snoring keeps him awake, the Iran News reported Tuesday.
So, he’s “ready to divorce her on whatever legal grounds she wishes.”
The newspaper identified the couple - married just 40 days - only by first names.
It said Gholam, suspicious Farzaneh was drugging his dinner, learned of her snoring after skipping his meal. Farzaneh admitted drugging Gholam, the paper said.
