An apparently fed-up married woman had on Tuesday, April 21, 2015 pleaded for the dissolution of her 9-year-old marriage at a customary court sitting at the Igando area of Lagos State.
The 30-year-old business woman, Mrs. Ifeanyi Osame, told the court that she was tired of the union because her husband has failed to satisfy her in bed as ‘he never lasted up to one minute’.
Osame said, ”My husband cannot perform well, he is not doing his job at all and that always makes me sad.
“My husband does not satisfy me, he does not last a minute on bed.”
According to reports, Mrs Osame explained how she forced her husband to a hospital to confirm what was wrong with him, and it was discovered that he had low sperm count.
She said, ”My husband has low sperm count. I bought the drugs prescribed by the doctor for him, but he refused to use them. His refusal to take the drugs always causes us to fight, because I need a child. We have been married for nine years without any issue.”
She further told the court how her husband usually travelled for as long as three months and beyond leaving her with the feelings of loneliness.
She prayed the court to dissolve the union as her love for her husband had already waxed cold.
While reacting to his wife’s grieviances, Mr. Samuel Osame, a 40-year-old businessman, admitted that he had low sperm count even though he resorted to waiting upon God for a miracle.
Mr. Osame further disclosed that he was trying his best to satisfy his wife, even though she was cheating on him.
The aggrieved husband said that his wife often received strange calls from men at odd hours.
He said, ”My wife is committing adultery, there was a day I saw a text message she sent to her man friend I showed her the text, but instead of her to apologise, she warned me not to touch her phone.
”My wife always goes out without telling me and comes back at 11.00 p.m., and whenever I query her, she would tell me she owns her life. And anytime she comes home, she will enter her room and lock me out.”
However, contrary to his wife’s quest for a dissolution, Mr. Osame pleaded that the court saved his marriage as his love for his wife was still strong.
The court president, Mr. Hakeem Oyekan, adjourned the case until Monday, May 11,2015 for further hearing.
