MY HUSBAND QUARRELS WITH ME, STOPPED TAKING CARE OF ME BECAUSE I’M BARREN —Wife

An Upper Area Court in Kubwa, Abuja, Federal Capital Territory (FCT), granted a housewife, Marya Abubakar’s request for divorce from her husband, Misbahudeen Kareem over his inability to provide for her.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the Judge, Mohammed Wakili, dissolved the two-year-old marriage according to Islamic Law, following Marya’s prayer for divorce on grounds of lack of care and respect.

Wakili, however, ordered Marya to observe “Iddah” (waiting period) of three months according to Islamic injunction, before contracting another marriage.

Earlier, the petitioner had told the court she got married to the respondent under Islamic law in June, 2021 and did not have children together.

She said six months into their marriage they started having issues and all efforts for mediation proved abortive.

Marya said she eventually left her matrimonial home because the respondent was always quarrelling with her and using abusive words on her.

“My husband does not take care of me and does not allow my relatives and friends to visit me since we got married,” she said.

She, however, urged the court to summon the respondent to court for determination of the status of their marriage as she had been in her parents’ home for the past one year.

The respondent, however, consented to the divorce.
