Remember what it was like during hard lockdown last year when we had to stay indoors with our partners? The divorce rate across the world spiked dramatically. Well, this man has taken his desire to be away from his wife to a different level…
In world news, a 30-year-old Albanian living in the town of Guidonia Montecelio under house arrest asked to be taken to prison, explaining that he was no longer able to cope with forced cohabitation with his wife.
“I can’t stand it anymore, the jail is better,” he said.
According to Italian newspaper, Il Messagero, the soldier on duty at the Tenenza Carabinieri barracks believed it was a joke when the man, who had just been presented at the barracks, asked to go to jail.
Exasperated by the situation, he preferred to escape by “spontaneously presenting himself to the carabinieri to ask to serve his sentence behind bars,” as per a statement.
The man was then arrested on charges of evasion, and the judicial authority, informed of the situation, ordered his transfer to prison.
As The Straits Times reports, the man, who lived at home with his wife and family said things weren’t going well: “Listen, my domestic life has become hell, I can’t do it anymore, I want to go to jail.”
The man was serving a house arrest sentence for drug crimes, The Straits Times adds.
