Court dissolves 9-year marriage over sex starvation

Fasusi Martins, Okitipupa
After successfully discharging the burden of proof that he has long suffered and endured in his marriage for nine years, an Okitipupa Magistrates’ court has dissolved the marriage between Mr. Olutola Akinlose and Mrs. Akinlose Oyinade on the grounds of cruelty and ill-treatment.

According to the civil summons filed on January 7, 2019, the 43-year-old petitioner, Mr. Olutola Akinlose, claimed that the estranged wife, Mrs. Akinlose Oyinade has always denied him of his conjugal right.

” My lord, my wife always refuses me to sleep with her until our family mediate between us and begged her beyond imagination before she would allow me ” he lamented

Akinlose, a tailor took time to explain to the court that he last had sex with his wife about three months ago until December 30th, 2018 after the family had intervened.

Aggrieved and dissatisfied with the above, he was of the opinion that he needed separation from the respondent.

He equally prayed the court to grant him the custody of the 1st and 2nd children of the marriage.

The respondent, however, built her case around the fact that the petitioner did not allow her to move freely as she desired.

She added that the petitioner sometime in December 2018 destroyed her personal belongings because she attended a meeting and left the children uncared for.

In his judgement, the presiding Magistrate, Adedeji O. Adebisi said it is obvious that the marriage has failed and broken down irretrievably. He held that not granting the petitioner’s prayer may lead to further exceptional hardship and depravity.

But the respondent was permitted to visit the children as much as she desires during reasonable hours and with reasonable notice. However, the custody of the third child was granted to the respondent with the visitation rights of the petitioner.
