77 Year Old Man Divorces Wife Over Sex Starvation

A 77-year-old retired engineer on Wednesday pleaded with an Agboyi-Ketu Customary Court in Lagos to dissolve his 23-year-old marriage, alleging that his wife often starved him of sex.

The septuagenarian, Mr Kola Fagbule, whose address was not disclosed, told the court that his 51-year-old wife, Beatrice, always denied him sex anytime he demanded for it.

“She always starves me of sex whenever I am in the mood and I don’t want to have prostate cancer.

“At my age, I am supposed to be enjoying sex now and not when I am gone; I don’t want to die before my time,” he told the court.

Fagbule also accused Beatrice, principal of a school, of not caring for his welfare, adding that there was no more love between them.

“I am tired of her and I don’t love her anymore,” he said.

He pleaded that the court should dissolve the estranged union, saying that he could no longer tolerate Beatrice’s conduct.

The respondent, Beatrice, did not deny the allegations, but told the court that her husband was a womanizer, “party-type’’ and jobless.

She also asked the court to dissolve the union which had produced a child, a university undergraduate.

The Court President, Mr O. T. Williams, adjourned the case to April 4 for “review of facts of the matter.

Kano State Formulating Legislation To Halt Divorces

The Kano State has expressed concern at the breakdown of marriages in the region.

State governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, said as such, his administration would enact a law that will address such incidents.

He stated this during a meeting with Hisbah Guards, Vigilante Groups, Vehicles Inspection Officers (VIOs) and Civil Society Organizations at Coronation Hall in Government House.

The governor directed the state Hisbah Board to discuss the issue with Islamic scholars and other contemporary Islamic students with a view to advising government on how the law would be implemented from an Islamic perspective.

Ganduje lamented the increase of divorce cases in the state as worrisome and noted that government would take appropriate action to stop the menace. The governor appreciated the effort of Hisbah Guards in institutionalising Islamic tenets in the state and assured that his government would continue supporting them to work effectively.

Commander General, Hisbah Guards, Malam Aminu Daurawa, said over the years, the board had reconciled 20000 disputes, remarried 4 900 widows and facilitated 2 300 converts to Islam.

This has been recorded in the four years of his leadership.

Why Marriages Are No Longer Working In Nigeria’ ,Seun Kuti Talks Us Through

In a new interview with Encomium magazine, afrobeat singer, songwriter and saxophonist Seun Kuti, who has said many times that he doesn’t believe in marriage, said one of the reasons marriages no longer last in Nigeria is because women are no longer submissive. Read below & tell us if you agree

“I don’t believe in marriage. The truth is, the marriage institution in Nigeria has collapsed. Nobody is getting married for long anymore. On the average, it’s within a year. Although they still marry, they separate. The thing responsible for it is that people get married for the wrong reasons. As a matter of fact, the institution of marriage is fading away in the traditional sense of marriage – for love; for better or worse; and all sort. It’s fading because women are no longer submissive.

For you to live together with someone for life, someone must be submissive. That is easier when women are not working, and they depend on their husband. But now, its becoming difficult because they are working; making more money even more than the men. The situation is terrible. Even if you as a man is not looking outside, your wife will look.

I’ve made a decision and my partner already agreed. In fact there was a wedding we went attended in Ibadan, the couple broke up at the reception. Because of picture, the bride’s father wanted to take first, the groom’s father said No and they started quarreling. The couple broke up at the reception. How about that?

About my father marrying 27 wives, if you look deep, you will discover that in 1986 my father divorced all his wives. People seem to forget this fact. It also goes to buttress my point that says marriage is becoming a fading institution. Fela was the epitome of marriage. First, he married one woman, then he married 26 at once. He has experienced both, and later he came out to say marriage is bad. What about that?” He said
