The husband, in his petition seeking divorece on theground of having been subjected to cruelty, had contended thathis wife wore vulgar clothes during their honeymoon.

"During their honeymoon, she dressed herself in a veryvulgar manner and when he asked her to change the dress sheretorted that she had dressed herself that way to be noticedby at least 50 people," the husband had said in his plea.
