A divorce-seeking 44- year-old woman, Oluwatoyin Falade, on Wednesday, asked Orile Agege Customary Court in Lagos State to dissolve her 11-year-old marriage due to her husband’s infidelity.
During court proceedings, the mother of two who lives in the Agege area of the state said, “My husband is a flirt, he runs after anything in a skirt.”
She added, ”I had two girls before I married him and those girls are 15 and 18. They stay with me and I don’t trust my husband because he chases everything in a skirt.
“My husband changes women anyhow and he doesn’t respect me. If the court doesn’t dissolve the union, I will run away with my kids.”
However, Segun admitted to the accusation.
He said, “I will not lie, I bring in different women to the house but I am ready to change. I have been begging her to please forgive me.
“My Lord, you can see that my wife is robust and fresh. It is obvious that she is not suffering.
“I bought her a phone recently and I pay the children’s school fees.”
He urge the court not to dissolve their marriage and promised to turn a new leave if given another chance.
The Court’s President, Adewale Adegoke, told both parties to be at peace with each other and further adjourned the case until May 30 for an alternative dispute resolution mechanism.
