My wife got pregnant for other men twice, husband tells court

A respondent , Mr Abiodun Adeyanju , on Tuesday told an Akure Customary Court that he married his wife, Mrs Opeyemi Adeyanju, carrying another man ’s pregnancy .
Abiodun told the court that despite being aware of his wife’ s pregnancy for another man, he still married her to show his love and kindness for her .

The respondent said he recently discovered that his wife was pregnant again for another man, whose identity she refused to disclose .
“I offered to render her some relief out of compassion, I allowed her to live with me in my house , and our relationship subsequently led to marriage.

“My wife was a known symbol of a mess in our neighbourhood, as a result of her high rate of promiscuity,’’ he said.
Adeyanju, a truck driver, alleged that Opeyemi was stubborn and disrespectful to him.

Earlier , the petitioner told the court that the respondent was fond of beating her at the slightest provocation .
“He usually stays away from home, without considering my welfare and that of our two children.

“My husband twice broke my hand because I was trying to dissuade him from smoking .

“I usually reported all the issues between us to his family members , ’’ she said.

The petitioner sought the dissolution of her 12 -year- old marriage to the respondent on grounds of threat to life and lack of care .
Opeyemi said she could no longer cope with the pains in the marriage.

The president of the court , Chief Rotimi Olusanya, told the petitioner not to misuse the opportunity she had, saying, “rarely could anyone cater for another man ’s pregnancy ’’ .

“I want two of you to settle the misunderstanding between you because of your children, ’’ Olusanya said.
He adjourned the case until April 6 , for settlement or determination of the marriage .
