A former airline cashier, Mrs. Grace Oguche, pleaded with an Agege Grade ‘A’ Customary Court, Lagos to dissolve her seven-year old marriage to her husband, Mr. Maxwell Madu, over his alleged poor performance in bed and being unemployed.
”Ever since we got married, I hardly enjoyed sex with my husband”, she said in her testimony in chief. My husband does not perform well on bed. It was God’s grace that we had the only child of the union. My husband maltreats me, calls me a prostitute”.
She added that her husband failed in his responsibilities and she was the one taking care of the house, yet he never appreciated her.
“I want the court to dissolve the marriage because he is unable to satisfy me in bed and not responsible at home.”
Meanwhile, Madu denied the allegations and said, “I agreed with her bid to dissolve the union. Because of my state of unemployment, my wife went to another man’s house for sex.
”My wife is never satisfied with sex, rather she complains so that she could get it somewhere else. I love my wife, but I do not understand why her attitude changed towards me. My wife comes home late, flirts around with different men and, at times, she does not come home.
“So, I want the dissolution of the marriage because my wife gets sexual satisfaction outside”. Court president, Mr. Emmanuel Shokunle, told the couple to maintain the peace and adjourned the case to May 20 for further hearing.
