My Wife’s Bad Attitude Forced Me To Impregnate Another Woman – Man Tells Divorce Court
Monday December 11, 2017 – My Wife’s Bad Attitude Forced Me To Impregnate Another Woman – Man Tells Divorce Court
Mrs Elizabeth Shofunde, a 36-year-old trader who claimed that her husband impregnated another woman, on Monday prayed an Igando Customary Court in Lagos to dissolve her marriage.
Shofunde told the court that her husband, Babatunde, abandoned his matrimonial home to live with the woman.
The mother of three submitted that she was fed up with the 11-year-old union because of Babatunde’s behaviour
“My husband abandoned us after he impregnated another woman; it is now three years he left us; he refused to pay the children’s school fees and house rent,’’ she said.
Elizabeth added that Babatunde battered her and refused to give her money for feeding the family.
According to her, Babatunde is a drunkard.
Responding, Babatunde did not deny the allegations but said that Elizabeth’s attitude pushed him to another woman.
He consented to the dissolution of the marriage, saying that he was also fed up with the union.
“My wife made life unbearable for me, and the frustration made me impregnate another woman,” he said.
The 38-year-old furniture maker said that his wife always threatened his life with dangerous weapons.
“Whenever we are fighting, Elizabeth brings out a knife or bottle to stab me but I always escape,” he said.
“I had a domestic accident and was admitted in a hospital. Elizabeth only called me on phone and did not visit me.
“Because of that, I stopped giving her money.
The respondent added his wife denied him sex for one year.
The Court President, Mr Moses Akinniyi, adjourned the case until Dec. 18 for judgment.

THE RATE at which people are divorcing these days frightens me.

Haaaaa J.B. hunter Agbalagba [ big bros] like you will not entertain the idea of marriage?… don’t say that again. Apostle paul said in 1conrinthian 7:28 that those who marry will have “trouble”. So trouble is certain to come our way in marriage. It is just inevitable because of our imperfection. And those trouble may be sparked by mere differences we have due to our background. But no matter how formidable it is, those who love God and want to please him can always surmount any marital discord. So don’t be scared. There is no big deal in marriage. After all, you are a great Hunter.

They should be referred to my state of Imo to meet Okorocha’s commissioner for happiness for advise. After all couples are supposed to be fulfilled. If they are still not happy she can couple them with other people.

@ DB, don‘t read different meanings into my comment on Mercy Johnson family afair
We are not talking about a case of a desperate lady going out of her way to snatching the husband of a legally married woman with kids here.
If you expected me to just stomach that kind of wickedness against an innocent woman, then you must have really under estimated me.
So, I am not a propagandist. But Im always trying to stand for what is fair and just.
Welcome to my World.

GETTING MARRIED , IT IS A VERY DANGEROUS GAME BECAUSE YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT THIS PERSON WILL DO AS SOON AS YOU SAY YES I DO,,
SOME MEN WILL SUDDENLY CHANGE WITHIN A WEEK YOU MARRIED THEM, AND YOU WILL BE CAGED, THEN THEY WILL TELL YOU THAT YOU SHOULD NOT GO OUT TO WORK,
THEY DO NOT WANT YOU TO EARN YOUR OWN MONEY BECAUSE THEY FEEL YOU ARE COMPETING WITH THEM BECAUSE HE WANTS YOU TO CRAW FOR EVERYTHING.
THEN YOU WILL BE WONDERING WHO WAS THIS STRANGER, AND FEEL AS IF YOU ARE CAGED AND INFRONT OF SLAVE MASTER.
MARRIAGE IS FULL OF INSULT, IT WAS A HELLHOLE,
SO IF YOUR FREEDOM IS VERY IMPORTANT TO YOU, PLEASE DO NOT MARRY. JUST BE A BABY MAMA AND HAVE YOUR OWN SPACE.
