A woman has filed for divorce after her husband demanded she pay him almost £100 every time he gave her a lift anywhere.

The unidentified woman is the sole breadwinner in the house and pays the bills - because her husband reportedly cannot hold down a job.

But when she asked him to give her lift because she doesn't have her own vehicle yet he told her she had to pay him 500 diram (£98), Al Bayan reported.

Local reports in Dubai claim the man already often goes out at night with his friends and leaves her at home with their children.

Yet despite this she agreed to pay the first 500 diram to him - thinking it would be a one off.

But when he again asked for the same amount next time she asked for a lift she decided that was enough and filed for divorce just over a month ago.

The woman, identified only as Yagmur Z, had had enough of husband Burak Z after two years of marriage after she claimed he had "abandoned" her for his bike.

She demanded 400,000 Turkish lira (£76,000) in compensation, as she claimed her mental health had been negatively affected by her husband's obsession, Daily Sabah reported .

Yagmur, from Istanbul, said: "My husband always spends time with his bicycle.

"He has a different kind of a bond with it. This is not an ordinary attachment, he is literally in love with the bike."

No information has been released about the husband's statements.
