Talking in your sleep can get you divorced!

No kidding!

A Muslim couple in Jalpaiguri district have been ordered by local religious leaders to separate as the husband allegedly uttered talaq three times in his sleep.

While the couple, who have three children, refused to obey the order since there was no discord between them, the community leaders are adamant that they must separate or face a "social boycott".

No, this is not a someachaar or an onion-style post. This is reality.
