I Don’t Love My Husband Anymore” – Wife Wants Divorce After 17 Years Of Marriage

A woman Oluwakemi Patrick on Wednesday asked the Ikorodu Customary Court in Lagos State to dissolve her marriage because her husband beats her up before making love to her.

Oluwakemi, a mother of five, said she could no longer bear the persistent beating before sex by her man, John Patrick.

She said:

“My lord, there is no more love in our marriage of 17 years. I want divorce.

“I met my husband 17 years ago. He proposed to me and I agreed to marry him, but after some time, his attitude changed. He no longer cares for me and our children.

“He is fond of threatening me and beating me up anytime I ask for money.

“Whenever my husband wants to have sex with me, he usually forces me. He beats me up anytime I deny him sex.’’

Oluwakemi said Patrick accused her of having extra-marital affairs.

I want the court to dissolve our union and let me have custody of our children because he is not a responsible man,’’ she said. Patrick denied the allegations.

The self-employed man living at Eyita community in Ikorodu told the court that he was not against the divorce.

The court President, Mr. Otun Olayiwola, adjourned the case till November 5 for mention.

    Marriage is not a do or die affair. Walk away and stay alive than staying in an abusive marriage and die in the process of believing it will be well someday.
