Woman Seeks Divorce Using Dna Testing

An Israeli woman plans to prove to a rabbinical court that her husband is cheating on her by using DNA testing.

The woman, in her 50s, took her husband’s underpants to a lab for testing after he took them off upon his return home, Ynet reported. The lab found DNA traces on the garment that did not belong to the husband or wife.

Rabbinical judges are reviewing the lab report. Ynet reported that “a considerable sum of money is at stake in this divorce procedure.”
