Marriage not about food only, woman tells court about husband who denies her sex

A businesswoman, Mrs Joy Abu, on Thursday, dragged her husband, Daniel, before a Customary Court in Nyanya, Abuja, for allegedly denying her conjugal rights.

Joy, who resides in the Jikwoyi area of Abuja, also accused her husband of being irresponsible.

The woman, who is seeking divorce, said her husband did not care about her and their children.

She said, “My husband has practically denied me of my conjugal rights; he doesn’t care to know how I feel, he doesn’t know that marriage is not only about food.

“A responsible man will cater also for the emotional needs of his wife.”

She prayed the court to grant her divorce; the custody of the children and compel her husband to pay N100,000 for the upkeep of their children every month.

Daniel denied all the allegations.

The Judge, Labaran Gusau, adjourned the matter to March 30. (NAN)

Incidences of sex denial or dissatisfaction have flooded the Nigerian courts in recent years, as husbands or wives seek legal rredress to what they call the ‘psycological disturbance’ associated with lack of conjugal relations in marriages.

There are instances when extra-marrital activities are reported and the causes are traced to the incapacity inherent in some of the spouses.

Cases related tolack of sex are rarely resolved if the conjugal rights are not restored.
