British Man Leaves Home, Hides in Woods For 10 Years to Avoid Whining Wife

 

Malcolm Applegate, now living in a homeless shelter near London, England, recently made news headlines after revealing that he hid from his overly controlling wife in the forest for nearly a decade.

 

The 62 year-old gardener abandoned home after three years of a troublesome marriage without informing any of his relatives about his escape plans. Malcolm's sister had been searching for him in vain for years and assumed he was dead, but it turns out the man just really didn't want his nagging wife to find out his whereabouts.

 

According to Applegate, the relationship wasn't all that bad in the beginning, but things fell apart ten years ago after his wife started constantly complaining about him working too many hours and not spending enough time at home with her.

Malcolm Applegate, 62 Yrs Old Gardener, Got So Fed Up With His Wife's Nagging He Went To Live In the Woods for Ten Years

 

A gardener who could not stand his wife's nagging ran away from home unannounced and lived in the woods for ten years. Malcolm Applegate, 62, was married to his wife for three years before he left home when he couldn't stand her anymore. He then made his way from Birmingham, where they lived, to London. The journey took him three weeks; half of it was made on his bike then after it got stolen in Oxford, he made the rest of the journey on foot.


Malcolm said the marriage was OK at first and they got along quite well but his increased working hours angered his wife and she complained constantly about it so he secretly left home. After leaving, Malcolm camped in "thick woodland" near Kingston, south west London, while working on gardens at a community centre for the elderly. During the period he was away, he lost contact with his family, including his sister who feared he was dead.


Malcolm said: "I was married to her for three years, but unfortunately it got too much. First of all I met her in Eastbourne and I married her in Birmingham. For three years it was alright, we got on with one another and the gardening got too much for her.

Robin Hood should have come to Thailand.  At least he would have had a band of merry men.  :burp::cheesy:

This story is not really up to professional standards. The author should have indicated whether or not an attempt was made to contact the wife and get her side of the story.

Just got to Love the Guy! When he says enough is enough he really means it.

 

I know how he feels. I threatened to do the same with my first X-wife and move to the wilderness to Pan for Gold. Which after expenses I would give he half.

 

Too bad I didn't have enough guts to actually do that, and went the hard away around that with Divorce Courts and finally leaving with $50 in my wallet.
