With tears rolling down her cheek, a housewife, Mrs Grace Olorunfemi, on today, Wednesday prayed an Akure Customary Court to dissolve her 11-year-old marriage, which, she claimed, turned her to a slave. 

Grace submitted that continued marriage to Abiodun would be tantamount to endless servitude. 

She alleged that her husband had no care for her and their two children, compelling her to engage in manual labour to fend for the family. “I prefer to be single than continue to live with Abiodun. 

He thought I am in his house as a slave,’’ Grace told the court. She submitted that in spite of her complaints, Abiodun failed to repent.

 However, Abiodun told the court that he was not ready for divorce. He promised to change his attitude and be a responsible husband. 

The President of the court, Mr Rotimi Olusanya, advised the respondent to turn a new leaf to save his marriage. Olusanya also urged Grace to be patient and see if her husband would change his attitude. 

He adjourned the case till Nov.17 for further hearing.

  2. “Abiodun told the court that he was not ready for divorce. He promised to change his attitude and be a responsible husband.”

    Sooooo you are not ready for divorce and you are not responsible ehn?? *raised eyebrow* mtcheeewww yeye man. God will grant Mr. Abiodun the grace to change his attitude and be responsible, amen.

  3. Cases like d one above should be a lesson to most ladies who wish to go into mariage, that they should make being responsible as a top priority quality in a man they would settle down with. Any trait of IRRESPONSIBILTY in a man is a big RED SIGN he can never be a good husband, irrespective of other qualities he may possess, therefore should be considered in d first place.

    1. Good point... + don't think he/she would change, he might and he might not...because it's not just men.
