A 23-yr-old marriage dissolved by Court over family interference


Last Updated on

A customary court in Mapo, Ibadan, recently dissolved a 23-year-old marriage between Mr Jelili Amubikan and Mrs Ganiyat Amubikan over family interference.

The president of the court, Chief Ademola Odunade, held that the evidence before the court had shown that there was no more love between the two, hence the marriage was dissolved.
Odunade said Amubikan should be paying the sum of N10,000 to his children monthly and take care of their health and education.

However, Ganiyat had told the court that their problem started with the interference of her husband’s extended family in their family affairs.

She said

“Our marriage is 23 years old now and we have two children. Our problem started when his family members began to harass me in my shop and my husband would always support them. There was a day one of his younger brothers met me on the road and beat me. I bought a car and my husband collected it from me. He has sent me out of his wife severally. I don’t want him again. Please tell him never to cross my path again.”

One thing about undue third party influence in marriage is that you may never know how bad it is until it begins to get out of control.

The negative effects of family interference after spending 23 years together!

If as a husband you don’t stand up for your wife, then who will?
