Man Seeks Divorce Over Wife's Tasteless Meals
He imagined she was an 'all rounder'. But as the weeks and months passed by it only got worse. It was either too much salt or no taste at all.
Ajibola says he will no longer abide the vow - "for better for worse".
Ajumoti Ajibola is praying the Idi-Ogungun Customary Court in Ibadan, Oyo State to dissolve his three-year-old marriage with his wife, Bolaji.Testifying on Friday, Ajibola described his wife as a disobedient woman, who hardly obeys instruction.
“She is not respectful and her mother, who is in the position to correct her mistake, always supports her whenever I report my wife to her.
“Also she cannot prepare decent meal and I can no longer eat tasteless meal, so the court should end our union of three years, to enable me marry a woman that can cook good food for me,’’ he pleaded.
The defendant, however, informed the court that she did court marriage, hence the customary court has no jurisdiction to entertain the case.
“Though I agreed with the dissolution of the marriage, but we did court marriage at Ibadan North Local Government Registry when we married,’’ Bolaji said.
The President of the court, Chief Mukaila Balogun, struck out the case, saying that evidence of both parties proved that they did court marriage.
Balogun advised the couple to proceed to high court for dissolution of their marriage.
