Melbourne: An Emirati man is being sued for a whopping 10.99 million dollars by his wife for failing to sexually perform, thereby depriving her of conjugal rights and causing mental anguish.
According to Gulf News, the unidentified woman told the court that her Emirati husband did not sleep with her in the first four months of their marriage in 2008 and later she discovered that he suffered from erectile dysfunction, reports the Herald Sun.
The newspaper quoted court records as saying that the woman alleged her husband failed to fulfil her needs.
The case is pending before Dubai Courts.
"Considering the conservative Arab values, and the woman``s situation in such a society, I remained silent and tried to adapt by praying to God that things would improve," she said.
The husband forced her out of her employment and stripped her of her jewellery, she alleged.
