A 45-year-old trader, Muina Adelami, has asked a Lagos family court in Lagos State to dissolve her eight-year-old marriage to her husband, Shuaib, a clerical officer, on the ground that his se x drive was high.
“I have managed to stay this long in the marriage because I thought his libido would go down but that has not been the case.
“In the eight years of our marriage, we only have a child, I had two miscarrages as a result of excessive se x.’’
She informed the court further that her husband liked se x too much and gave her no breathing space.
“We start having se x every night just before midnight and this goes on till the early hours of the next day. Many times, immediately after he comes back from work, he starts demanding for sex.
‘’He will refuse to stand up even when I am crying and will start beating me whenever I complain.
“There were time I did faint, but when I came around, he would start again.
“The way he’s going, he will kill me. I now look older than my age mates due to too much se x,” she said.
In his defence, Shuaib admitted to having a high se x drive, but added that it was his right to have se x with his wife.
“I was advised to marry a younger wife but I cannot afford that, that is why I take care of her and give her everything she wants.
“I have been trying to change her mind on the issue of divorce, but she is adamant. I love her and would not want to divorce her. I also know that se x can’t kill her,” he said.
The case was adjourned till December 4.
