In parts of India, defecation in the open fields is common. An Indian woman has been granted permission to divorce her husband because he would not build a toilet in their home. The woman in her 20s had been married for five years, but had been forced to relieve herself in nearby fields. Indian law only allows divorce in limited circumstances such as domestic violence or proven cruelty.The woman's lawyer told the AFP news agency that the judge said forced open defecation was a form of torture.
