There are many reasons why marriages can not withstand the test of time, and as a result, are dissolved.

Some of the major reasons include battery, infidelity and disrespect for spouse.

But there is a rare case and reason why Mrs Hafsat Zakaria wants her marriage of 16 years to come to an end.

The housewife, on Friday sought dissolution of her 16-year-old marriage over alleged failure by her husband to provide food.

Hafsat also told a Sharia Court in Minna that her husband, Mr Umar Aliyu, was not providing money for general maintenance of their home.

“My husband is not living up to his responsibility of putting food on the table.

“He also failed in providing for my general maintenance and upkeep of our four children.

“That is why I am begging this honourable court to bring the marriage to an end,” she said.

Responding, Aliyu, however, denied the allegations, saying he had always done his best for his family.

He told the court that his wife was looking for an excuse to break the marriage.

Aliyu said that he still loved his wife and wanted the marriage.

In his ruling, the Presiding Judge, Mr Mohammed Habib, advised the couple to embrace peace, saying that marriage required patience and understanding.

Habib said that the court would give the couple an opportunity to resolve differences amicably.

He adjourned the case till November 1, 2018 for report of settlement.

In December 2017, an Igando Customary Court in Lagos State, yesterday, dissolved the five-year-old marriage between Mr. Chukwuma Onwumere, and his wife, Obianuju, following the respondent’s threat to the petitioner’s life by always twisting his testicles whenever they fight. President of the court, Mr. Moses Akinniyi, in his judgment said the estranged couple was tired of the marriage, adding that all efforts to reconcile them had failed.

He held: “Since both parties consented to the dissolution of their marriage, this court has no choice than to dissolve the marriage.

“The court pronounced the marriage between Mr. Chukwuma Onwumere and Mrs Obianuju Onwumere dissolved today (yesterday); both parties, henceforth, cease to be husband and wife. “Both are free to go their separate ways without any hindrance and molestation.”
