Turkish Man Fined After Saying He Doesn't Love His Wife
Sat 07-03-2015

A man in Turkey was fined after he declared to his wife that he does not love her, the Daily Sabah news website reported.

The Turkish Supreme Court of Appeals ruled that saying “I don't love you” to a spouse is tantamount to emotional violence, the news website reported.

The couple, who have been embroiled in a lengthy divorce case, have been seeking compensation from each other over insults that reportedly flooded their clashes.

However, the Supreme Court of Appeals considered claims that saying “I don’t love you” had left her “emotionally wrecked.” The husband said she constantly “cursed” him.
