“Hubby, you know where I am, why don’t you visit me?” wrote Ms. Lin to her husband online. She had moved out of his home because his family was unfriendly to her.
“I got into a car accident, I’m in the ICU!”
“Hubby, I’m in the hospital ward.”
“Hubby, why do you keep reading my messages but not replying?”
“Hubby, is it necessary for things to become so cold between husband and wife?”
“Hubby, are you just going to be so ruthless and not ask me anything?”
“Hubby, why do you treat me like this?”
There was no reply. When Ms. Line recovered, she filed for divorce, and presented the messages to the judge. The judge said that failing to respond to the messages showed the state of the marriage and the foundations of the union had fallen apart. He agreed with Ms. Lin that it was heartless of her husband to read her messages without replying, and granted her a divorce.
