Husband charged of   cheating on wife
Phnom Penh Municipal Court on Thursday charged a man with adultery after his wife filed a complaint against him for having sex with a woman at a guesthouse in Chamkarmon district two weeks ago. The wife said she was unhappy with her husband since they became married because he was always conjuring up arguments and had forced her to have an abortion when she was three months pregnant. She had suspected her husband of playing the field, so she kept a keen eye on his comings and goings.
