My Husband Beats Me for Not Bearing a Male Child – Drama as Wife Seeks Divorce in Court

Published

on

An angry house wife has approached a Customary Court sitting in Ekiti State to dissolve her marriage over a constant beating by her husband for not having a male child.

A wife, Sayo Akomolafe, on Monday told Ikole-Ekiti Customary Court in Ekiti State that her husband beats her constantly for not having a male child.
She pleaded with the court to dissolve her marriage to her husband Segun Akomolafe due to neglect, lack of care and constant beating.
She said trouble started when her husband discovered that she was pregnant with a girl-child for the fifth time.
The plaintiff said her husband, who never beat her before, used her as punching bag because she could not give him a baby boy.
“I gave birth to my first child 13 years ago, but my husband started neglecting me and the children when I gave birth to the fifth girl-child.
 
“As a result, he married two other women and ever since they arrived, I have no peace again in the house,” she said.
She said the two wives also gave birth to female children.
Sayo added that she later gave birth to the sixth child – a boy- for the same man.
The defendant, a welder; denied constantly beating her, saying that trouble started when his wife discovered that he married other women.
The three-member panel of the court headed by Mrs Yemisi Ojo, however, told the husband that the chromosome released by man is what determines the sex of a child.
Ojo also ruled that the aggrieved parties and their families should go back home to deliberate on how to take care of the six children.
“The court is disposed to settlement outside court and this case being a fresh matter, parties are given the opportunity to deliberate on how take care of the children,” she said.
The court ordered that the defendant must not beat his wife again and adjourned the case till May 8, for report of settlement.

“There’s the urge to have that close nuclear family unit and then there’s the reality; it’s not that easy having another child and building a new home. I’ve heard from other people’s experiences too. Somehow, I’ve been able to manage all these years with my daughter.

I am proud of her; she’s in secondary school now. I just want to work on giving her the best. I won’t say that I am using torchlight to look for a family now, but if it does happen, I’ll embrace it with all of me. But the reality of it is that, it’s not as beautiful as it sounds,” she said.
