He hanged himself in his home only three months after moving to the UK from Romania with his partner to start a new life.
The couple married in 2015 after meeting in a nightclub in Romania when they were aged 21.
He was furious when she admitted cheating on him and on the night of his death they had a blazing row.HANGED HIMSELF
She fled the house in Hull, East Yorkshire, to go stay with her lover as Zoltan hit the bottle.
She peeked in at him at the window at 2am but when she returned the next day he had hanged himself.
The story of the love story that went tragically wrong was told to Hull Coroner’s Court on Friday.
The wife claimed as soon as they arrived in Britain her husband stopped showing her affection and refused to hug or kiss her.
There was a big argument between us because of that. He seemed very annoyed. He then told me to p*** off and never wanted to see me againZoltan’s wife
She fell for Mr Benedek’s best friend “because he listened to her and attended to her needs”, the hearing was told.
She then told her husband what had happened because she was “feeling guilty” but pleaded for them to stay together.
Speaking via an interpreter, she continued: “I told him about the affair and he suggested we go back to Romania.
“There was a big argument between us because of that. He seemed very annoyed. He then told me to p*** off and never wanted to see me again.”CONFESSION
Zoltan began behaving strangely after her confession. They both worked at the same factory and he told their bosses she was going back to Romania and would not be in.
Things came to a head on June 17 last year when they rowed at their flat and his wife fled back to her other lover.
She added: “I left to stay with my husband’s friend that night. When I went back at around 2pm, the door was locked and I couldn’t get in.
