A businessman, Mr Emmanuel Godwin, on Monday prayed a Mararaba Grade 1 Area Court, Aso Pada, to dissolve his three-year-old marriage over wife’s disrespect.
Godwin of Tudun Wada, Mararaba, Nasarawa State, told the court that his marriage with Sarah, contracted in 2014 has not produced any child.
He also told the court that he tried his best to make his wife happy and make the marriage work, but his wife has not changed.
“The reason of seeking for divorce is to have peace of mind and also have happy times, but my wife does not give me that.
“My wife and I always have misunderstanding and she never respects me as her husband, so why should I keep living with someone like that?
“I am just tired of the union and I pray the court to grant my wish of divorce,’’ he added.
The respondent, Sarah, denied the allegations and said that she was not ready to divorce her husband because she still loves him.
“I was surprised when I got the court summon because he never told me anything that has to do with divorce.
“I pray the court to give us more time to try and reconcile, I don’t want to lose my husband,’’ Sarah said.
The Judge, Mr Albert Maga, directed Sarah to visit her parents-in-law, along with her parents, for possible reconciliation.
Maga adjourned the case till Jan. 13, for the report of settlement or judgment.
