Feb 14, 2016 – 70-Year-Old Pastor Seeks Divorce From Wife After 10 Years Of Sexless Marriage

A pastor has urged an Ojo Customary Court, to dissolve his marriage with his wife Titilayo because she starved him of sex. The petitioner, Caleb Oluwafisibe, 70, who has been married to Titilayo for 41 years, said his wife uses sex to punish him. According to him, his wife has refused to allow him to have sex with her for 10 years now.

He said that his marriage went downhill after things became tough for him. The pastor told the court that he was already practicing a celibate life, even though he is a married man. Oluwafisibe said: “Since I married my wife in June 1975, it’s been marriage and separation in two phases because every situation was determined by what I could offer.

We were living well until 1998 when things became tough for me. We separated from 1998 to 2006 when my church transferred me out to the east. My wife had a negative influence on my children as we had divergent views on their welfare and training. We always clash because of them.” Oluwafisibe said his wife refused him sex from 2006 till date, adding that it forces him to start practicing celibacy in order not to offend God by breaking his vows.

He added: “I even had a special prayer for my wife for three years to see if God would intervene in the difficult situation and change her personality.” The pastor begged the court to separate their union. He said that it was only after the marriage had been dissolved that he could move on with his life. Titilayo denied her husband’s allegations.

She said that her husband used to treat her without tenderness. She added: “He calls himself a pastor, yet he doesn’t have regard for his family. He has really caused so much division among our children.”

The Court President, Veronica Willoughby, urged the pastor to reconsider his prayer of dissolution as a man of God. Willoughby said: “As a pastor, you should seek peace and not separation. I will give you a second chance to go back and reconsider your intention. You have both failed in the training of your children by using them as a point of disagreement. Your children are your collective responsibilities.” Willoughby adjourned the case to February 16, 2016, to give the couple some time to reconsider their intentions.

  1. Wives should stop using sex to punish their husbands & husbands should learn how to treat their wives with compassion & love

  2. It is a very greivious thing that the court is now the agency that now advices the church on issues of marriage. Marriage was instituted by the God of the Christian Church. By right, the court should have no hand in tying a connubial knot on lovers. But now they tie and untie. Man has given defect to everything that God has made!

  3. On another note, I strongly advice every Christian woman to do everything in her powers to avoid divorce. It favours men more. What I will say now might shock some people; it shocked me when I first discovered it. A woman who is divorced can NEVER remarry! Any sexual experience she gets outside her divorced husband is adultery, whether she had eventually married another man or not.

    I am talking New Testament scripture here. Matthew 5:28 reads, “But I say that a man who divorces his wife, unless she has been unfaithful, causes her to commit adultery. AND ANYONE WHO MARRIES A DIVORCED WOMAN ALSO COMMITS ADULTERY.” Again, 1 Cor 7: 10-11, “To the married I give this command (not I, but the Lord): A wife must not separate from her husband. But if she does, SHE MUST REMAIN UNMARRIED OR ELSE BE RECONCILED TO HER HUSBAND. And a husband must not divorce his wife.”

    Now, while the bible stresses clearly about women’s conduct after divorce, it remains silent about men; it does not tell us whether a man who divorced his wife could take up another woman who had never been married before. In that case the choice is open for the man. But the bible minces no words when it says that a woman that remarries after divorce commits adultery.

    This should serve a warning to the women. You go ahead and marry a guy you hardly know just because he is rich; you are playing with your eternal destiny. Any guy who beats you when you were only friends would not stop when you have married him. A wife batterer must show the signs early enough for you to quit. If you stubbornly go ahead, be sure there’s no going back.

  4. na wa o, you should have ended the marriage a long time ago because @ 70 I don’t think sex is what you really need now.

    • Jojo make you wait until you have reach 70. Na that time wey you will sabi. Even me when I reach 90 I go de faya de go.

  5. HELLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, I AM YOUR ANNOITED PREACHER.

  6. Wonders shall never end, pastor going to court for divorce nawa this is real end time. So pastor what are you pastoring? May God deliver you sir, go n seek for the face of God. Shalom divorce is not the solution at your age, you need delivarance.

  7. Husbands also use sex staving to punish their wives. In this case, you will not know who actually started it. Remember pastors and their usual fasting for power of God.
