Heartbroken Wife Threatens Suicide In Court After Finding Out Her Husband Had 2 Wives & 6 Children

A mother of one, Mautin Idowu, on Wednesday asked a Badagry Customary Court in Lagos State to dissolve her five-year-old marriage to her husband, Michael, to prevent her from committing suicide.

The 28-year-old petitioner threatened to jump into a river in the coastal city if the court declined to grant her request due to the alleged wayward behaviour of her husband.

Mautin, a teacher in a public school, said that she was tired of her husband’s disrespect for her family, his intolerable behaviour and lack of love.

Her words:

“I was in 300-level at the Lagos State University Distance Learning Programme when I met Michael Idowu in 2012.

“He was a teacher and I was teaching with my National Certificate in Education (NCE) then; he proposed to me but I rejected because he was older than me.

“Michael told me that his wife divorced him with two sons and out of pity, I fell in love with him.

“Few months after, he took me to meet his family. When I got pregnant in 2013, we got married and he paid my dowry.

“But when I was seven months pregnant, I discovered that my husband had two wives and six children which he hid from me during our courtship.

“He lied to me, my world broke down but I survived the trauma.

“ Michael kept me in a two-room apartment in a bushy area, but I still managed to have my baby, ”.

She told the court that her husband abandoned her and her baby and disrespected her parents by shouting at his mother-in-law and hanging up the phone on her father.

The respondent was, however, not in court.

The court’s President, Mr Sakirudeen Adekola, adjourned the case till Oct. 18 to give room for an amicable settlement between the couple.

    • Point of correction: not all men cheat. There are so many wonderful men out there just as you have for women and so many crazy ones as there are women too. A lot of times in a relationship, there are red flags but most people choose to ignore believing that the person will change. Such must have been the case of this woman just as a man could also fall victim of a crazy and terrible woman. If she chooses suicide, it is her loss because the man obviously has a degree in Sperm Donation and as a matter of fact, she wont be missed by him, she would have only succeeded in leaving sorrows for her family and friends. You dont have to kill yourself beacuse of a man or woman. She should leave him if she wants and pick up the pieces of hef life and make the most of the goodies life has got to offer. Plain and simple.

  2. He told u he divorced and u believed him right away.u relaxed and never digged the truth. few months u fell in love and got married only to realise five yrs after.divorce papers will be there as a proof from day one,people around his domain must know him and u should have known better even as a graduate and a teacher.forget jumping into the river and go take care of your kid.marriage is serious business and should be consolidated under scrutiny and truth

  3. Madam Idowu you fell in love through deception and at the same time you yourself never took your time to investigate further. You are almost 30 years old, a Collegian and it never cross your mind that wait a minute, before digging myself into web of love, I need to do some research or even go back to his family to uncover the truth. You said you believed him and started making family. You are little bit faulty here too. Even if you are unable to investigate yourself, you can pay some people to dig out his true identity. Any man can tell you what you want to hear in order to get in between your legs.

    The deed has been done. You don’t have to commit suicide because of this. All you need is to repackage yourself for a new man who will love you the way you wanted that is, if you are lucky to find one OR stay with this man and join the group of Michael’s wives.
