I caught her on 3 different occasions with different men —Husband
I'm a responsible woman —Wife
An Ado-Ekiti customary court in Ekiti State during the week dissolved the 26-year-old marriage between Mr Kayode Oguntuase and his wife, Felicia.
Oguntuase had approached the court for the dissolution on the grounds of threats to life, being impervious to corrections, adultery, stubbornness, theft and lack of care for him.
The plaintiff, 75, and resident of No. 99, Igirigiri, Odo-Ado, Ado-Ekiti, told the court that he caught his wife on three different occasions with different men.
The father of six said that his wife did not take care of him and always starved him of sex.
According to him, he fell sick sometime ago and his wife refused to take care of him.
He said that his wife always stole his money, adding that, there was a time he sent her out of his house, but that her family intervened and he took her back.
He, therefore, prayed the court to dissolve the marriage.
But the respondent, Felicia, 53, denied all the allegations levelled against her.
Felicia said that they had been living together for many years and that she performed her responsibilities as wife at home, and also satisfies him in bed.
She said her husband had never sent her out of the house and could not have done so because they built the house together.
President of the court, Mr Joseph Ogunsemi, observed that the marriage had broken down irretrievably and consequently dissolved the marriage.
He ruled that the custody of their three younger children, who were 18, 15 and 12 years of age, be awarded to the husband.
Ogunsemi also ruled that the three older ones, aged 25, 23 and 21, should be left to decide where to stay.
He ordered that the husband should be responsible for the children's education.
Ogunsemi also ordered that the husband should get his wife a suitable accommodation and pay two-year rent for her.
The, court, however, granted access to the wife to see her children without fomenting trouble.
