Recession forced me to deny my wife sex , Man tells court
Monsuru Adetunji told a Lagos customary court that he was compelled to stop making love and ejaculating inside his wife because of the present economic recession that hit Nigeria .
According to him , the wife didn’t understand that it was to save her from getting pregnant .
Monsuru, 38, a trader said he was surprised when his wife packed out of the house and brought him to court for the dissolution of their marriage.
The wife, a 36-year-old seamstress, Sherifat Adetunji, on Friday pleaded at a Lagos Island Customary Court that her marriage should be dissolved on the ground that her husband was longer ejaculating inside her during sex.
The mother of two said that her 10-year-old marriage was blissful until five years ago when things started changing.
She lamented that her husband could go a year or more without making love to her and that when he did, he would not ejaculate inside her.
“My husband has been starving me sexually. Sometimes he won’t touch me for a whole year and when he did, he would not release inside me.
“I have complained severally about my dissatisfaction over his attitude towards our sexual life, but has refused to change,” she said.
She told the court that her husband once brought a strange man into their house to perform some rituals in the middle of the night and since then, she had been emaciating.
“My husband brought a man to pass the night in our house and in the middle of the night, they performed some rituals since then, I have been growing lean.
“He did not show any concern about my state of health or why I was growing lean everyday,” Sherifat said.
She, therefore, prayed the court to dissolve the marriage and give her the custody of their two children, Alia, 8, and Kismat, 5.
Her husband, Monsuru, 38, a trader, told the court that he thought his wife was happy in their marriage because they hardly quarrel.
He said he was surprised when she packed out of the house and brought him to court for the dissolution of their marriage.
“The man she said I brought home was a distant relation who had no place to pass the night,” he said. (NAN).
