KUALA LUMPUR: A 61-year-old taxi driver who almost had his ear bitten off by his Vietnamese wife is back with her for now.
The reconciliation is temporary as Le Thi Quang will be returning home in the next few days to take care of her sick grandfather in Hanoi. However, the couple will divorce if Thi Quang does not return.
Ching Weng Seng's reconciliation with Thi Quang came about after the woman's relatives in Ipoh refused to accept her following the publicity in the newspapers about her case.
“My relatives and friends did not allow me in their house after reading about me in the newspapers,” said Thi Quang, 29.
“I came back to Kuala Lumpur and tried calling my husband but he did not answer my calls,” she said.
Thi Quang said Ching finally answered her calls and agreed to take her back. Ching picked up his wife from a bus stop in Batu Caves yesterday evening.
Thi Quang said she regretted the incident and apologised to her husband, saying: “My husband and I were drunk.”
Ching was equally conciliatory.
“We often argue when we get drunk but things got out of hand that day,” he said.
Ching took his case to the MCA Public Services and Complaints Department last week and related how Thi Quang had bitten his ear when he wanted to have sex.
She also threw medicated oil into his eyes, sprayed insect repellent into his face and threatened to cut off his manhood.
She also claimed that she had HIV, which turned out to be a lie.
Both husband and wife signed a letter of agreement in front of MCA Public Services and Complaints Department head Datuk Michael Chong, which stipulated that Thi Quang and Ching will divorce if the Vietnamese does not return within three months.
Chong said: “Men should treat their wife with respect and not take them for granted.” - theStarOnline
