A middle-aged woman, Toyin Ayinde, has urged an Agege Customary Court in Lagos State to divorce her 20-year-old marriage. She is accusing her husband, Mudashiru, of being promiscuous.
Tribune reports that the petitioner, a businesswoman, said her husband sleeps with any woman.
"When we got married, we didn't have enough and we were contented with whatever we had but when we became comfortable, my husband began to womanise. He sleeps with anything. He lacks good taste," she said.The mother of three told the court that her husband keeps claiming that there is no wealthy man who doesn't womanise.
"To let you know how loose he is, five years ago, I was admitted to a hospital because our last child had jaundice after delivery. My husband, who is slack when it comes to women, had an affair with a nurse.
I once woke him in the middle of the night to advise him. He cried and promised to stop the act. As I speak, there are no changes," she said.Toyin said her husband's relations sent her out of his house because she refused to have sex with him.
"I refused to have sex with him because I could get infected if he continued to sleep around. Also, he wants to try all styles of sex with me which I strongly disagree. It's been almost a year since I moved out of his house. His relations have been pleading with me to go back to him but they don't know what I am facing. He is loose and I can't cope anymore," she added.Responding, Mudashiru did not deny the allegations. "Everything she said is true. I support our marriage dissolution," he said.
President of the court, Mr. Adekunle Williams, advised the couple to reconsider their positions and adjourned till April 9. -
