One Salim Wahab of Okelele area, Ilorin, yesterday, asked an Ilorin Area Court to dissolve his marriage due to his wife’s obsession with parties.
Salim, 33, said his wife, Mariam, had turned into a party freak, spending every weekend attending parties and other social events, thereby neglecting her matrimonial duties.
“My wife always has ceremonies to attend and will never spend her weekends with me and our only child, instead she will go to parties with her wayward friends”, he told the court.
According to him, the marriage, contracted in 2009, is blessed with a child, named Quadri.
“My lord, I want an end to this marriage because I cannot cope with a woman that loves parties more than her family”, the husband begged the court.
The wife, however, objected to her husband’s request for divorce, saying that she was still interested in the marriage.
“My husband always wants me indoors, I promise to quit attending parties and spend more time with my family”, she said.
Mariam also prayed the court to give them time to reconcile their differences.
The presiding judge, Mr Yusuf Abdulkareem, acceded to her request and gave the couple up to July 24 to reconcile.
