Court dissolves 5-year-old marriage over husband’s constant insult

Maryam, 35, housewife, had approached the court to dissolve her five years marriage over husband’s constant insults.

Divorce

The judge, Mr Musa Owuna, said that the petitioner, Maryam, insisted on the dissolution, in spite mediation from the court and family intervention.

Owuna said that since the petitioner insisted on divorce after several interventions, the court has no choice than to dissolve the union, though the husband still claims he loves his wife.

“The court cannot force Maryam to continue in the relationship since she knows what is best for her

“Therefore, in the interest of peaceful coexistence, the union between Maryam and Hassan now cease to be henceforth,’’ he judge said.

The judge ordered Maryam to return the N7, 000 paid as dowry to her husband, and awarded custody of the two children produced by the union to Maryam.

She told the court that they got married sometimes in 2012, according to Islamic law and blessed with two children.

She accused the husband of being in the habit of calling her names, “he insults me, complains about the way I look and also the way I dress.

“He doesn’t even respect me as a wife and he has not been taking good care of me or the children.

“I am no longer interested in the marriage, and I want the court to dissolve the marriage.’’

The respondent denied all the allegations and pleaded with the court to give him time to enable him reconcile with his wife.

He told the court that he was still interested in the marriage and he was not ready to divorce his wife because he still loves her.
