Court dissolves I-year old marriage over wife’s improper care for husband

broken marriageAn Ikole-Ekiti Customary Court on Thursday dissolved one-year old marriage between Ayodele Olukayode and his wife, Kikelomo, over the wife’s lack of proper care for the husband.

The husband had sought for divorce in a suit filed against his wife on Nov. 17 on the grounds that the 12-month-old union had broken down irretrievably.

Olukayode told the court that he sought for divorce because his wife had adopted a negative lifestyle.

He added that his wife had no respect for him, other members of his family, and was always fighting him on minor domestic issues.

The plaintiff further told the court that there was no child between them.

Kikelomo, however, denied the allegation against her, saying that she cared for the plaintiff and gave due respect to him and his family.

She also denied fighting the plaintiff on any issues, but instead accused her husband of not caring for her since their marriage.

Kikelomo pleaded with the court to grant the divorce request made by the plaintiff.

Mrs Yemisi Ojo, President of the Court, upheld the request of the plaintiff, noting that pieces of evidence before the court proved that there was no more love between Olukayode and Kikelomo.

The court, therefore, dissolved the marriage.
