Those who have enjoyed numerous good times, with marital bliss once dominating their lives, sometimes fall apart. And reasons they list for being irreconcilable are simplifying.
Learn from some of the funniest divorce cases…
AGBESANYA OMOLARA, a 32 year old teacher filed for divorce in an Agege Court in Lagos because she found used condoms in her husband’s pocket.
“What is he doing with used condoms? In fact, he has never used condom for me, he is a pastor. I want this honourable court to help me ask him. He has been pastoring for five years. He has started committing adultery, it is better to end the marriage.”
“I have never reached orgasm. I long for it whenever I hear people talk about it. I would like to try somebody else. I am no longer interested in the marriage. I believe if I get another man, I will be satisfied with my sexual desires”. These were the reasons ABOSEDE OJO, a 28 year petty trader, would want the Alakuko Customary Court, Lagos, to divorce IYIOLA, her husband.

IBIKUNLE ADEOLU, a 42 year old businessman, urged an Agege Customary Court, Lagos to dissolve his four year old marriage because his wife, ROLAKE burns food too much.
