A Malaysian factory worker's 17-year marriage crumbled after he found out that his wife was cheating on him with a female police officer.
He said his wife and mother of his seven children promised to end the affair a few days ago.
But the 40-year-old man was livid when he discovered that she was still exchanging romantic messages with the woman.
The police officer also allegedly visits his 36-year-old wife when he is at work. The wife had befriended the other woman through social media, The Star reported.
He decided to bring his strained relationship to the attention of the Malacca Religious Depart ment and also lodged a police report.
News of his wife's affair surfaced after the couple's eldest daughter witnessed a "man", who sometimes wore women's clothing, taking her mother out while her father was at work.
The daughter told her father, who then found out what his wife had been doing.
The wife also purportedly returned each time with expensive gifts that the man could not afford to buy for her.
