Wife Who Refused to Cook and Clean Divorced and Fined

A court ruled on Wednesday that a housewife must pay 10 million won ($8,500) to her husband in a divorce suit after she stopped cooking and cleaning for him. The couple, who married in 1992, had slept separately in their home since 2008 when her refusal to undertake all domestic chores began.

The Seoul Family Court said "The major responsibility for the divorce falls on the wife who one-sidedly blamed the husband for his different ideas", deciding the case in favor of the husband who had consistently blamed his wife for not thinking the way he did.

The Court said the woman also verbally abused and beat her younger son for his poor academic performance, potentially robbing her husband of his patriarchal rights. She will be tried later for robbery.
