Pastor Begs Court to Dissolve 15 Year Marriage Over Wife’s Alleged Nagging




African American Couple Fighting

A pastor named Tunde, on Monday urged an Akure Customary Court to dissolve his 15 year-old marriage to his wife, Agbeke for alleged frequent nagging.

Tunde, founder of Christ Living Church, Owo, Ondo State, said that his wife was hell-bent on making life unbearable for him.

The cleric also told the court that some of the scars on his body were caused by the constant fisticuffs between them, adding that there was no more affection existing in the marriage.

He said that the respondent was a “disgrace to his pastoral calling’’, noting that she had once torn his cloth in front of his congregation when he was preaching.

Agbeke, in her response, denied the allegations, but said that she was ready to part with the petitioner.

He said that the union had produced four children.

She accused her husband of being promiscuous, night crawling, failure to carrying out marital responsibilities of providing for the house and the upkeep and education of the children.

The President of the court, Olayinka Falodun, in her ruling urged the petitioner to take care of the welfare of the children.

Falodun also advised the respondent to intensify efforts in ensuring the bright future of her children.

He, therefore, ordered the parties to come to court with two witnesses each at the next adjourned date.

The president adjourned the case till August 31.

    Divorce on the Altar? The devil must be having a hell of a party wherver he is now
    When they will be over spiritualizing everything instead of to chose wisely.
    Because he is a pastor does not exempt him from the frailities of humanity. No matter your title a bad marriage is bad marriage.

    After infidelity, nagging is the worst you can get from a woman. Some women can drag you to suicide with their nagging. And that’s when you might consider infidelity a lesser evil.

    If two people are not happy together …no need to continue to force it and live hell on earth.

    I just pity the children.

      Which kain prayer, does not the bible said by wisdom is a house built and by understanding its is established?? The way some people thinks prayer is the solutions to everything still baffles. Dont work and be praying for wealth, you will grow old with nothing materially. There are certain pronciples that must be followed or else your prayers will be ineffective

    When a man cheats, we tell the woman to endure, pray, commit it to God, be patient, submit, love, for better for worse, etc but when the woman is nagging, they say “run”… I am getting the gist o… Love, for better for worse, endurance, patience, etc those are languages men are incapable of speaking, abi? How sad? Make una well done. Besides, some times nagging could be triggered by frustrations too, just saying. So what if Mr. Pastor is not a saint?

    Well, ask me what I think, I think Mr. Pastor has a ‘Miss aspiring pastoress’ somewhere taking advantage of the situation to prove how loving and ‘un-nagging’ she is. So he has to gerrarahere for him to get in there and the gist is that wifey is excessively nagging and everybody is shouting “run”. My dear daddy in the Lord, you are tired of the marriage, abi? Please run and keep running to the tent of ‘Miss Perfect’. Lol.

    Y’all don’t mind my unnecessary long story, I am a Christian and I am all for ‘for better for worse’, marriage has no exit doors. However, if we want to start changing the rules, can we go back and tell those sisters that have been cheated on and disrepected in so many ways that it’s now time to leave as the rules have changed? I’m just saying, I like to balance things a lot or we could just hold our peace! My advice to oga pastor, hang in there, keep praying, be patient, the next time she nags show her more love, etc. the Lord is your strength sir!

      Yes I know their are exceptions to the general rule of ‘no exit doors in marriage’. There are extreme/life threatening situations that no one should endure in any marriage. The thing is I’m not sure nagging falls under these categories sha, but what do I know?

      i agree.. people (especially women) respond positively to love. i’ve seen many examples where it was the guy that was extremely patient and loving and all and it all worked out. when you think you’ve tried all you can, try never fails.

    I like how he said she tore up his clothes in church, she’s hardcore and I guess the hypocrisy of whatever he was preaching just got to her that Interesting that with all he said that is going on in the marriage, the violence and embarrassment to his pastoral calling, it is nagging he is divorcing for. She is probably indeed nagging him because is is not financially supporting the household and six mouths to feed is no joke. Men don’t like to be reminded of their shortcomings. The family is supposed to be hungry and happy, school fees can’t pay just smile and say nothing, bills can’t pay be happy, living in a hovel be happy, the minute you say anything you’re nagging.

    WHen a man says a woman is nagging,it is because the man is constantly neglecting an important issue. A man abdicates his responsibility to his wife,cheats on her and then she nags and he wants the marriage to end. I wish men knew what leadership and headship means. God would require explanation from the man as he made her the head over his home ,like he asked Adam when eve did wrong. He should take charge of his home and do the right thing,the woman would submit
