A MAN has been told his soon to be ex-wife is divorcing him via a sign on a bar in Swansea’s Uplands.

Noah’s Yard put up a sign on Saturday saying ‘Paul...I am divorcing you’.

And now the woman who asked for the sign to be put up has spoken to the South Wales Evening Post about her reasons for telling her husband she wanted a divorce.

The wife, who wished to remain anonymous, went into Noah's Yard — which has a history of changing the words on its sign — on Tuesday to ask for the sign to be put up at the weekend.

She said the reason behind her doing it was to name and shame her husband after finding out he allegedly had an affair.

She said: "I was angry and upset so wanted a sign to go up for everyone to see.

“When I found out I went through a mixture of emotions but felt angry and wanted him to pay.

“I had a drink in the bar on Tuesday and decided to get my own back.

“We have been married for years and it is so sad it has come to this.

“I am absolutely devastated and going through a really tough time at the moment.

“A lot of my friends and family have seen it and have been supporting me.

“I did feel a bit better once the sign went up. I wanted to name and shame him.”

The wife said she had messaged Paul to tell him to go read the sign and he was furious when he saw it.

Noah’s Yard changes the words on its sign on a regular basis.

Noah Redfern, owner of Noah’s Yard, said they have had a lot of unusual messages displayed on their building before — but was definitely a first for the Uplands bar.

He said: “Maybe this will become a new way of asking for a divorce.

“We have had a lot of interest in it and all weekend customers have been asking about the story behind the sign.”

In the past Noah’s Yard has had a romantic proposal on it and supported the city of culture campaign by emblazoning the campaign logo on its premises.

    Whatever Noah is paying his PR company, it isn't enough.
