My wife refuses to cook for me, Husband tells court

A farmer, Ebenezer Alegbeleye,  on Wednesday asked an  Ikole Ekiti Magistrates’  Court  to dissolve  his  15-year-old marriage to his wife,  Modupe,  over her refusal to cook for him.

The plaintiff  told the court  that he had been cooking  his food  for some time now without any assistance from his wife.

“I will return from the  farm,  peel the yam, pound it and fetch drinking water myself, while my wife watches  me do all that without assisting me,’’ he said.

He said he could not  continue to stay under the same roof with the respondent, urging  the court to separate the union.

Alegbeleye told the court that  he attempted divorcing his wife three years ago only to halt the move due to the intervention of family members.

The respondent, however,  denied the allegation against her.

She told the court that her husband had prevented her from cooking for him after a misunderstanding some two months ago, adding that she was still interested in the union.

The president of the three-man panel, Mrs. Yemisi Ojo, ruled that the plaintiff  should allow for an amicable settlement on the grounds  that the  respondent was still committed to the union and had  shown  remorse.

She told  the estranged couple to go back home to  seek for an amicable settlement, saying the plaintiff should monitor the wife to ascertain  if  she had changed.
