Grounds for Divorce in Turkey
-- Caught red-handed, bride wins on appeal --

I was shocked, yer honor...
Caught red-handed...
Thanks Hürriyet Gazetesi -- 25 June 2006
A court in Ankara initially found the 19-year-old bride guilty and granted her new husband a divorce on the grounds that he caught her in bed with a small tube of red paint, on their wedding night. But, after an appeal from the bride's Turkish divorce lawyer, the District Attorney later reversed the court's decision because the husband had waited 3 months before bringing the case to trial.

According to the Turkish DA's reckoning, that 3 month wait in the divorce proceedings constituted an 'acceptance of the situation' and a 'demonstration of forgiveness' on the part of the husband.

"We'd been together in bed on our wedding night," went the testimony of the bridegroom during the divorce proceedings..." And my wife showed me a piece of cloth with a red substance on it. I remarked, 'That looks like paint to me', but she vehemently denied it. Then, suddenly, I felt something hard under the pillow and when I looked, I found a tube of red paint. I was shocked.

I called my brother and his wife into the room -- and they saw the tube of red paint too. That night and the next day, we went to two hospitals -- trying to get them to run the virginity tests. But it was too late to prove if she had been a virgin or not, before we got married.

But later, my wife and I argued and she admitted that she had put paint on that piece of cloth."

And although the wife (who had interests in wood paints and fabric dyes) denied all of her husband's divorce grounds, trial charges, and testimony, the court originally found in the husband's favor.

But upon appeal of her divorce attorney, the District Attorney in Ankara's 2nd Law District reversed the court's decision saying, "The marriage continued for three months after the stated reason for the divorce application. In that case, it is not right to grant the divorce petition for that stated reason... without taking the lengthy tolerance of it into account."
