I no longer feel connected to my husband, says divorce seeking wife

A 29-year-old housewife, Maryam Aliyu, has prayed a Mararaba Grade 1 Area Court, to dissolve her 9-year-old marriage to her husband, Abubakar Ja'afaru, for lack of care.

The marriage, contracted in 2006 according to the Islamic rites, has not produced any issue.

The petitioner accused her husband of not taking good care of her.

''We have been married for nine years, but no child though our sex life is good, but I don't feel connected to my husband,

''I want the court not to waste time on this case because I don't want to stay under the same roof with him as my husband anymore,'' she said

Defending the allegations, Ja'afaru said he still loves his wife.

''We don't have children, but I still love her as my wife, I pray the court not to grant her the divorce.

''Children comes from Allah and I have faith we will have our children someday.

''There is food at home, things had not been easy for me that is why I can't afford to buy her clothes always, but I do my best as a husband,'' Ja'afaru said.

The Judge, Mr Owuna Musa advised the couples to go home and try to settle.He adjourned the case till Aug. 24, to hear the outcome of the settlement or give his judgment.
