Man Seeks Dissolution of 9-year-old Marriage Over His Wife’s Lack of Respect for His Mother



dreamstime-DivorceA 31-year-old man, Eyebiokin A., on Friday asked an Ado-Ekiti Customary Court to dissolve his 9-year-old marriage to his wife, Adeola.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Eyebiokin is seeking dissolution of the union on grounds of lack of respect for his mother and no more love for his wife.

Eyebiokin, who resides at Ureje Area, Federal Polytechnic road, Ado-Ekiti, alleged that his wife does not respect his mother, saying that they quarrel all the time.

He recalled that there was a day his wife offended his mother and he had to send her packing out of the house.

The plaintiff, who is also a father of one, said that he was no longer interested in the marriage and prayed the court to dissolve it.

He appealed to the court to award him the custody of their only child, Ayomide, aged 8 years.

But Adeola, the respondent, who resides at No. 25 Ojido area, Ado-Ekiti, told the court that she was living with her mother-in-law when she gave birth.

She said it was true that she often had quarrels with her mother-in-law.

Adeola said when their  child clocked a year and one month, her husband took him to live with his (Eyebiokin’s) mother.

She, however, told the court that her husband did not regularly pay the child’s school fees.

The President of the court, Joseph Ogunsemi, adjourned the case till November 22 for judgement after listening to both parties.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    I believe they can still settle this amicably. The dissolution of the marriage is not the right answer. It will affect the upbringing of the child.

    This man is very stupid. You took the child away from his mother to live with your own mother?? you are very stupid and selfish. So it’s only your mother u care about abi?? u don’t care about your wife’s feelings?? how can u take away the child from a woman who birth him n does not even abuse him?? what nonsense! Madam, give this loser the divorce he wants. He is a very senseless and cruel man. She disrespects your mother indeed. As if your mother would like itnif your father took u away from her when u were little. Heartless family.

    Every now and then we read several cases of marriage dissolution! So unfortunate. People no more know or probably lack the knowledge of marriage.

    Tell your mother to bud out of your marriage or you need to get married to your no good mother.

      I hope you have a mother? Wait until your partner disrespect your mother all because of marriage then keep quiet and let ppl say this trash you just altered. Don’t ever let someone bring your family down. Marriage is different from family. The two should not contradict.

      I will like to ask if you’ve a mother? If you do then I pray someone talks your mother down all the time and you get this same response of yours. So when ppl marry disrespect is allowed? Disrespect is even better when its btw you and your partner but taking it down to your family is a no no. Marriage and Family are two different entity and none should not be toy with. It would have been fair to ask what caused the disrespect.
