A seven-year-old marriage is in line for dissolution over husband's withdrawal method during sexual intercourse.
Mutiatu, a trader, whose husband sought for dissolution of their seven-year-old marriage, said that the petitioner did not want her to get pregnant again after having a child.
“My husband is in the habit of disposing of his sperm on the floor during intercourse.
“He does not want me to get pregnant; he no longer releases sperm into me when we have sex.
“He started this withdrawal method five years ago; I only have one child who is six years old now.
“My husband can go more than six rounds, but will never release the sperm into me, instead he pours it on the floor.
“Whenever I queried him about the withdrawal method he uses, he failed to give me a satisfactory answer,’’ she said
The respondent said that her estranged husband was an untamed chatterbox.
“My husband is a talkative, he talks too much and he cannot keep the family secrets. He is in the habit of sharing our family issues with his relatives, friends and the public.
“There was a day I was attacked spiritually; blood was gushing out of my eyes, nose and mouth.
“When I was rushed to a prayer house, I was told that my husband caused the sickness because he talks too much about out affair to the public,’’ she said.
The respondent also described her husband as tight-fisted.
“My husband is very stingy; he does not give me money. I have been the one taking care of our baby from birth till now,’’ she said.
The mother of one said that her husband had also turned her into a punching bag.
“I have scars all over my body as proof of his abuse anytime we have misunderstanding, he would beat the hell out of me,’’ she said.
She urged the court to grant petitioner’s request for the dissolution of the marriage.
“I also want the marriage to be dissolved; I’m tired of the marriage,’’ she said.
The Petitioner, Sunday, 42, had approached the court to end the marriage over alleged threat to life.
Sunday, a businessman, said that Mutiatu always threatened to kill him.
“My wife is after my life; she stabs me with dangerous weapons whenever we have misunderstanding.
“She once stabbed me with a broken bottle on my head and I bled heavily which landed me in the hospital.
“Whenever we have disagreement, she brings out knife threatening to stab me.
“She is just aggressive and violent in nature; she may kill me one day if I continue with the marriage,’’ he said.
Sunday said that he was not interested in her having another child from her due to his wife’s violent nature.
“Due to her stubbornness and violent nature, I avoid getting her pregnant by using condom or withdrawal method.
“ I don’t want any baby from her again,’’ he said.
The petitioner begged the court to terminate the union on ground of lack of love.
The president of the court, Mr Adegboyega Omilola, adjourned the case to April 25 for further hearing.
