These days, patience is running thinner and thinner.
A man in Nasarawa state filed for divorce from his wife of 12 years, and cited his reason for divorce as her constant nagging. And he got his wish. But that’s just one side of the story. The reason for her nagging as you’ll read below is very valid.
A Mararaba Grade 1 Area Court in Nasarawa State granted him his divorce on Tuesday.
Aliyu, 40, a civil servant, had on Aug. 4, urged the court to dissolve the marriage because his wife nags a lot and stones him whenever they had misunderstanding.
He had this to say to the judge:
“I have done my best to provide a comfortable life for my wife but her attitude causes a lot of embarrassment to me and I am left with no choice but to seek divorce.
“I attempted to reconcile, but it did not work out and I am tired of being patience on this issue. She hid my land and refrigerator receipts, she also sold my cushions worth N40, 000 without my consent.”
The couple had 3 children together.
As for the wife, here’s what she had to say about her husband:
“Please grant his request because he is a liar and a cheat whom I cannot stay with. On several occasions he travels to Sokoto to see another woman without my knowledge and leaves my children and I without food. I have been enduring his lies but since he wants a divorce then it is okay with me I will not object to it.
I want him to promise that he will be paying the children’s school fees and their upkeeps,’’
