Woman Divorces 78-Yr-Old Husband Over Negligence
For better, for worse but when there is no cash...?
A Customary Court in Agodi, Ibadan, on Tuesday dissolved the 15-year-old marriage between Wuraola Adekunle, and her husband, Rufai.
Wuraola, 43, a resident of Apete, Ibadan, had prayed the court to uphold her request due to her husband’s negligence to take care of her and their children.
The petitioner told the court that her 78-year-old husband was in the habit of threatening her whenever she demands for money.
Wuraola also said she shouldered the responsibility of school fees, feeding and other needs of the children alone.
The respondent did not object to the dissolution but denied the allegation of negligence.
He urged the court to allow the children to be in his custody so that he could effectively take care of them.
The President of the court, Mukaila Balogun, said the evidence of both parties before the court proved that the union lacks love.
Balogun said the court could no longer play a reconciliatory role for settlement of the rift since both parties had agreed to path ways.
He dissolved the marriage and ordered that the three kids of the marriage should be in the custody of their father “as agreed by the couple”.
