Facts on Russia:

A Taiwan court has granted a man's request for divorce because his wife is too shy to consummate their marriage, a newspaper said on Sunday.

Date: 2007-02-12

The man, a 38-year-old teacher from Tainan County, south Taiwan, was introduced to Lin, 29, also a teacher, by a matchmaker. After dating for three months, they married a year ago, but Lin refused to consummate the marriage, the China Times reported.

On the wedding night, Lin slept fully dressed and wrapped with a quilt. When Chen tried to sleep with her, she pushed him away shouting: 'You are ridiculous!'

The next morning Lin returned to her mother's home saying she was ill, and would not live with her husband again.

Through the matchmaker's mediation, Lin signed a contract agreeing to consummate the marriage but only for the purpose of procreation, and demanded to sleep separately. Even so, she failed to live up to the pledge.

In June 2006, Chen filed for divorce with the Tainan District Court. Lin contested the divorce, claiming that she refused to consummate the marriage on the wedding night because she was too tired and was ill.

But the judge said it was strange for Lin to refuse to consummate the marriage for one year, so he granted the divorce on Saturday and ruled that Lin must compensate Chen 300,000 Taiwan dollars (about 30,000 US dollars) for buying an apartment, giving Lin's family dowry and losing face because she did not consummate the marriage.
