DUBAI // A woman in Ras Al Khaimah has filed for divorce because of her husband’s heavy smoking.

The complaint, filed by the woman at the Department of Reform and Family Guidance at RAK Court, claims the husband refused to stop smoking in the couple’s home despite it impacting her health.

The woman said her husband was a chain-smoker and he does not stop when she is in the house, adding he sometimes wakes in the middle of the night to smoke, leading her to suffer from continuous bouts of coughing, reported Al Ittihad, the Arabic language sister paper of The National.
