Marriage is not easy. This is a fact several married couples from all over the world can attest to. It is usually up to the couple involved to work out a way to ensure that their union works.
This is not the case with 49-year-old Gbenga Olomilua and his 32-year-old wife Rashidat. The couple who have been married for ten years recently appeared before the Grade C Customary Court sitting at Inanlende, Ibadan.
Olomilua told the court to put an end to his marriage with the claim that his wife sleeps with every man in the area. He added that his union with Rashidat was characterised with cheating, nagging and disrespect NAN reports.
“I married her when she was nothing. Although I didn’t pay her dowry, yet I took care of her and provided for all her needs to make her satisfied.
I work in Lagos, but I spend my weekends in Ibadan. Unfortunately, she used my absence as an opportunity to learn the acts of infidelity from her friends.
She is now an expert whose promiscuity has reached an alarming stage. She hardly stays at home to take care of the two kids from our marriage.
She is fond of nagging, and she will never listen to or obey my instructions and command as the husband. In this regard, her decision to end the marriage is a welcome development,” Olomilua said.
Rashidat on her own part had earlier asked the court to dissolve her marriage on grounds of brutality and unrest of mind. She accused her husband of turning her into a punching bag at the slightest chance especially when they quarrelled.
“He even cut my hair with a razor in one of our fights. My lord, I am scared, because I am not sure of what he wants to do with my hair. He does not treat me as a husband will treat his lovely wife. He maltreats me, never providing for my needs.”
Rashidat concluded that since there was no more love in the relationship, the court should have both parties go their separate ways.
The President of the court, Chief Ramoni Olafenwa, thereafter, dissolved the union and gave the custody of the first kid to Olomilua.
Olafenwa directed the second child to remain with Rashidat and ordered the respondent to pay N4,000 as monthly upkeep allowance for the second child.
