A nine-year-old marriage has been dissolved over the husband's inability to satisfy his wife sexually.
Tribune reports that the 33-year-old woman, Ifeanyi Samuel, had instituted the divorce suit seeking for the dissolution of her marriage to her 40-year-old husband, Samuel Moses, because he no longer satisfied her in bed and as such, was making life unbearable for her.
While testifying, Ifeanyi said:
"My husband cannot perform well, he was not doing his job at all and it makes me sad. My husband does not satisfy me, he does not last a minute in bed.
I had to force him to go for medical check-up and it was confirmed that he is suffering from low sperm count.
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 had resulted in fighting because I need a child. We have been married for nine years without any issue,” she said, pleading with the court to end the marriage as her love for her husband was dead.
In his reaction, 40-year-old Samuel, admitted he had low sperm count and is looking up to God for divine intervention.
“I am trying my best to satisfy my wife and I am also trusting God for a miracle. But my wife is engaging in extra-marital affairs.
My wife has been committing adultery; there was a day I saw a text message she sent to her lover. I showed her the text, but instead of her to apologise, she warned me not to touch her phone again.
My wife goes out without telling me and comes back at 11.00pm and whenever I query her, she would tell me she owns her life.”
While delivering judgement, the president of the court, Hakeem Oyekan, affirmed that the union was dissolved because the wife had insisted on divorce despite several attempts to salvage the marriage.
“The court has no choice but to dissolve the union in spite of the fact that the husband still claims he loves his wife. The couple can no longer stay together because the marriage has broken down totally.
The parties are no longer husband and wife; they are free to go their separate ways.”
