57-year-old Nigerian Man Divorces Wife Due to 'Late meals'
A 57-year-old man has been granted divorce from his wife of 25 years from the fact that she doesn't provide him his meal on time.
"My wife had failed in her matrimonial obligations. She does not prepare my food on time and I have warned her several times, but she would not listen to me," he was quoted as saying.
"There is no point in harbouring a wife that makes me hungry. I am totally fed up," Adekoya told the hearing, for which the paper gave no date.
His wife denied the alleged dereliction, accusing her husband of plotting to take another wife.
But court president Olu Adebiyi reportedly dissolved the unhappy union, concluding: "The court had tried several times to reconcile their differences, but all efforts proved abortive."
It is thought to be the first time a husband has been granted a legal separation over his domestic meal time arrangements, although Nigeria is no stranger to bizarre divorce cases.
