A woman is divorcing her husband after he asked her to pay him to spend time with her rather than with his friends.

According to Al Bayan, the man in Dubai asked his wife to pay him Dh500 (approximately £97) every time he took her out.

The man claims that every time she ‘takes him away from his friends,’ he should be compensated.

The man who is at present unemployed reportedly said, "An employed woman should help her unemployed husband."
