Woman Seeks Divorce Over Husband’s Inability To Impregnate Her

Woman Seeks Divorce Over Husband’s Inability To Impregnate

A 30-year-old housewife, Marwanatu Muhammad on Monday prayed a Shari’a court sitting in Rigasa, Kaduna State, to dissolve her 10-year-old marriage to Iliyasu, for his inability to impregnate her.

In her petition, Muhammad alleged that Iliyasu has not gotten her pregnant since they got married in 2011.

“He was married before now but the wife left him due to his infertility issues.

"I thought my case would be different but I was wrong.

”I am okay and have no health issue."

She added that she is no longer interested in the marriage and ready to return the N20,000 dowry he paid.

In his defense, Iliyasu said the petitioner owes him N17,700 and wants the court to assist him to recover his money.

The Judge Malam Salisu Abubakar-Tureta had earlier ordered the parties to go for medicals, to know where the problem lies. Abubakar-Tureta asked the petitioner to swear with the Quran that she did not receive N17,000.

He held that the union had been dissolved through Khul’i (redemption) and adjourned the matter until February 24, 2021, for the petitioner to produce the N20,000 dowry and to swear.
