KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - A Malaysian man slapped his wife
on their wedding night and stormed out of their home after she
received a text message from an unknown admirer who
professed his undying love for her.
"Though you are married, I still love you," was the message that
flashed on the screen of the 19-year-old woman's mobile phone
just as the couple were about to enter their room at 2 a.m. on
Sunday, official news agency Bernama reported.
Her husband, 25, refused to believe the woman's statement that
she did not know who the sender was, hit her, tossed away the
phone and walked out of the house, the agency said on Monday,
quoting the Borneo Post newspaper.
Police on the rugged eastern island have arrested a man and
are investigating after the woman and her family complained
about the incident in a case that one official called unique in
his 33-year career.**
**Why is this unique ?
The couple are members of the Iban, a tribe of former
headhunters that lives in communal longhouses and makes up
about a third of the population of Borneo.
