Bhopal family court have directed the couple, who married last year to stay separately for six months, after which they will behave granted divorce decree, a counsellor said.

"Bhopal family court judge RN Chand has directed the couple to stay separately for six months," court counselor Shail Awasthi told PTI Friday.

The woman and her 25-year-old husband has not have had a child yet filed a mutual consent plea for divorce, Awasthi said.

"Women nowadays are separating from their husband over petty issues. This woman, who hails from Barigarh near Bhopal, complained that her husband stinks and when she asks him to bathe, he wears perfume to beat the odour," Awasthi said.
