My Husband Follows His Mother’s Directive – Divorce Seeker Tells Court



dreamstime-DivorceA housewife, Iyabo O., has told an Akure Customary Court that her husband, Ezekiel, is still under his mother’s tutelage.

Iyabo, who made this known when she testified in her divorce proceeding against her husband on Friday, said that “my husband is working by her directive.”

“It is my mother-in-law that gives us food and my husband will not do anything except waiting for the mother’s money. The worst part is that my mother-in-law will not caution her son to stop beating me,” she said.

She begged the court to dissolve her five-year-old marriage to Ezekiel for alleged intake of excessive alcohol. .

The complainant said that she could no longer tolerate the constant beating she got whenever her spouse was drunk.

According to her, the alcohol intake has rendered the respondent irrational in the way he treats her.

She appealed to the court to award custody of the only child of marriage to her.

Ruling on the case, the President of the court, Rotimi Olusanya, said the repeated refusal of the respondent appearance in court would not stop the proceedings.

Olusanya adjourned the case till September 27 for judgment.

    Men are badly behaved this days and should learn to be better behaved. Women should also learn to tone down the level of mother-son relationship. Men won’t listen, women won’t listen though
