Man Ends 7-Year-Old Marriage To Quarrelsome Wife
A seven-year-old marriage between Liadi Kareem and his wife, Abibat, was on Tuesday dissolved over irreconcilable differences on the orders of an Idi-Ogungun Customary Court at Agodi, Ibadan.
Kareem had testified at the court that Abibat was in the habit of nagging and disrespecting him.
He alleged that his wife used to pack out of his house whenever they had misunderstanding.
“Her bad attitude and the disagreements had prompted me to seek divorce.
“Our union is blessed with one child and I will be responsible for the maintenance of the child,” he told the court.
On her part, Abibat denied the allegation of nagging, but blamed the husband for their frequent disagreements.
She accused her husband of packing her belongings out of his house after he “engaged” another woman.
The estranged wife, however, agreed to the dissolution of the marriage and urged the court to grant her the custody of their child.
The court then ruled that the woman’s continual nagging and bad-temperedness had necessitated the dissolution of the union.
The President of the court, Chief Mukaila Balogun, who gave the ruling, awarded the custody of the only child of the marriage to Abibat.
Balogun ordered the man to pay N3,000 monthly as upkeep allowance for the child and warned both parties to keep the peace.
