An Egyptian woman is seeking a divorce from her husband after a four marriage because he refused to buy a new TV.

According to news website Masrawy, the woman called Heba, 30, said she filed for divorce because her husband “is afraid to spend his money and only works to collect more of it.”

Heba added that she felt her husband “had a weak personality” and was “unable to protect” her.

Heba claimed that when her husband said he would not replace an old malfunctioning TV, she asked for a divorce.

“We had friends and relatives visiting our home and during the visit, their children wanted to watch TV. I spent an hour trying to turn on our old TV, but to no avail. It just wasn’t working.

“When the guests left, we both had an argument about it, and he still refused to buy a new TV screen.”
