A customary court in Akure, Ondo State, has dissolved the marriage between a mother of three, Esther Adaramola, and her husband Michael over complaints of excessive sex demands and rigorous love-making.
Esther, who was testifying before the court in a divorce suit filed by Michael, accused him of using sex enhancing drugs each time he made love to her.
“One of the causes of the problems is that my husband uses ‘manpower’ before making love to me, which I don’t enjoy.
”He also wants me to exhibit different sexual styles which are odd and unacceptable to me. I have told him that I cannot continue with vigorous sexual intercourse,” she said.
The housewife, who showed the court a piece of the drug as exhibit, noted that she would not contest the application for divorce. “It will actually give me peace of mind,” she said.
Michael, in his application, said he was no longer interested in their nine-year-old marriage because his wife is stubborn and promiscuous. He also accused her of dressing indecently.
He said: “She likes wearing transparent clothes, showing sensitive areas of her body and she is adamant to corrections.
“Her extra-marital inclination has become a recurring decimal, keeping late nights after work.’’
According to him, his heart often pricks whenever he sees his wife, which may cause him hypertension if he continues to live with her.
” I cannot help the situation, so I am opting for divorce.
Esther, while responding to her husband’s allegations, denied dressing indecently. She told the court that he only wants to see her wearing ‘iro’ and ‘buba’, which were not her desire.
According to her, the husband normally transfers his anger to their three children whenever they had disagreement.
President of the court, Mr. Ayodele Omotola, who reserved judgment to August 23, said the court would take into consideration the interest of the children.
He, however, asked the parties to maintain peace before the adjourned date.
