Most blokes tend to go down to the local pub when their wife is being a pain the arse, or they lock themselves in their man shed for the night.
But not this guy. Fed up husband, Malcolm Applegate went to extreme measures to get the hell away from any future nagging when his relationship with his 'controlling' wife reach the breaking point.
62-year-old Malcolm secretly left their Birmingham home for the bright lights of London – where he camped in ‘thick woodland’ near Kingston.
"Before becoming a companion at Emmaus Greenwich, I was a gardener in Farnborough for 25 happy years".
"I loved the job, and I still love tending to gardens now – it wasn’t until I got married that my life became increasingly unsettled".
"The more work I took on, the angrier my wife got – she didn’t like me being out of the house for long periods of time".
"The controlling behaviour started to get out of hand, and she demanded that I cut my hours".
"After a long time trying to stay in the marriage, I decided to leave for good – without a word to anyone, not even family, I packed up and left – I went missing from them for ten years".
Fucking hell. But I guess you gotta do what you gotta do.
