""My husband always spends time with his bicycle. He has a different kind of a bond with it," Yağmur Z., who resides in Istanbul, said in her complaint, adding that her husband cleans up and fixes his bicycle in the middle of the living room on a daily basis."

Another example of irresponsible journalists trying to make the story rather than report the story. The husband has a bike (singular). How does this casual, lukewarm interest in one bike manage to morph into an obsession?

Eh - the journalist simply reports the nature of woman's claim.

The woman, identified as Yağmur Z., who has been married to Burak Z. for two years, demanded 400,000 Turkish lira ($106,111) in compensation, as she claimed her mental health has been negatively affected by her husband's obsession

I don't see the problem. Perhaps if she got on a bike herself, she would sympathize and actually take more of an interest? SMH

Just because the woman used the word "obsession" does not make it so. The word was also used in the headline, which lends it a degree of legitimacy, and I doubt if the woman had any say in that.

This lead me to a google search my wife described as "ridiculous" and "why you are always running late" but it is actually really interesting :mrgreen: .
