A man who begged a court to annul his marriage of four years claims his wife is a flirt.
A middle-aged man, seeking a divorce from his wife of four years, Ariyo Sule, told a Grade “C” Customary Court, sitting in Iseyin, Oyo State, that his wife, Mope, is an incurable flirt who slept around with many men for money and other forms of gratification.
Sule who prayed the court to dissolve the marriage that has produced two children, added that his wife began cheating on him shortly after he lost his job and was incapable of providing for the family.
“She sleeps around to make money. She has no shame or respect for her marital status at all.
I have been forced to send her out of our matrimonial home and the children are still with me as we speak. I will ensure that I take good care of them.
I want to appeal to this court to do justice by pronouncing us divorced legally," Sule appealed to the court.
Ruling on the prayer of the appellant, the President of the court, Raimi Oyegbenle, said that the defendant who had refused to appear in court, had written to the court to consent to the dissolution of the marriage, stating all efforts to reconcile the couple by their families had proved abortive and therefore the court had no choice but to annul the marriage.
