Man's Love For Booze Tears His Two Years Old Marriage Apart


One Mr. Segun Falaye's love for alcohol has suddenly put asunder to his 2-year-old marriage to Celestina.

The marriage that was once rosy has been dissolved by a Lagos Customary court, over the man's love for alcohol consumption and Indian hemp smoking.

The petitioner, 33-year-old Celestina, had dragged her husband to the divorce court with the intention of ending the marriage since she could no longer cope with his intake of drinks and drugs.

But the husband, Falaye, 40, said: "I take alcoholic drinks, but not excessively. I have never taken Indian hemp. My wife controls and commands me, all because she pays the bill. I used to pay the bills, but now that I have no job, I cannot steal to fend for my family.

After much plea by the President of the court, Ruphus Adeyeri, to reconcile the couple, he had to accede to her demands and dissolve the union.

"Both parties are no longer husband and wife; they are free to go their separate ways."
