A middle-aged housewife has caused a little drama in an Ejigbo Customary Court in Lagos State, yesterday when she rejected a divorce suit filed against her by her husband, saying they made love before appearing in the court of law that morning.
Mariam Jimoh, mother of two , who got married ten years ago to her Oyo-state born husband, simply identified as Sunday without her parents’ knowledge cried out to the court that the dissolution would be unfair on her part as she still performs her wifely duties which includes taking care of her two children who are aged 6 and 4 and also performing her wifely roles to the husband.
The embittered wife however grieved on not knowing where to go after the divorce saying she has planned her life with his husband including having the next baby for him. The husband, revealed to the court of law that he was tired of the whole marriage saying his parents were and are still not in support of the union which produced two cute boys, David and Simon.
The court has however withdraw the case as the parents of both parties were said to be ready to settle the family issue amicably out of court. It could be recalled that just recently, a 63-year-old man, Joseph Okeleke urged a customary court to dissolve his 24-year marriage over his wife switch to different churches and being adulterous.
