An Iranian man has been ordered by a court to buy his wife 124,000 red roses to make up for his negligence.
The neglected wife - known only as Hengameh - decided to take her spouse Shahin to court to punish him for being tight with his money during their ten-year marriage.
She said: "Shortly after marriage I realised that Shahin was very cheap. He even refused to pay for my coffee if we went to a cafe or restaurant." A long-stemmed rose in the Islamic Republic costs just over �nd the order will set him back an estimated �,000.
Under Iranian law mahr - which is offered by the man to the woman at the time of marriage - can be claimed at any time during married life or divorce proceedings.
