A housewife, Folake Femi, on Wednesday urged an Ilorin Area Court to dissolve her two-year-old marriage to her husband, Adeyemi, claiming he was fond of complaining.
The 27-year-old woman, who is a resident of Niger Area of Ilorin, told the court that her husband was fond of complaining about everything she does.
“My husband always criticises and condemns me in the presence of my friends, not minding the humiliation this has brought to me,” she said.
She said that their marriage was contracted in 2011 and had produced one female child.
“ My Lord, I want an end to this marriage because I cannot endure the humiliation anymore,” she said.
The respondent, however, objected to the prayer of his wife, saying he was still interested in the marriage.
“My wife needs thorough supervision whenever she is cleaning the house because of her lazy nature, and that compels me to always criticise her,” he said.
Adeyemi promised to always encourage her henceforth and prayed the court for an adjournment to enable him make a reconciliatory move.
The presiding Judge, Mr Yusuf Abdulkareem, adjourned the case to Aug. 30 for a report of settlement or continuation of hearing.
