- A man has divorced his wife over her fertility and frequent procreation
- The man revealed that he wanted only 2 children but currently has 6
- The court granted the divorce because the woman in question did not show up for any of the court sittings
YEN.com.gh has gathered that a marriage of nine years was dissolved after a Kenyan man, Michael Ayinde, 39, took his wife, Glory, to court over her ‘sharp' fertility and her giving birth at will.
According to the report sighted on Mynews.com.gh, Michael Ayinde, had earlier told the court that his wife, whose name he gave as Glory, enjoyed “giving birth at will’’ without consideration for the prevailing economic situation.
According to him, Glory has had six children for him within the nine-year duration of their marriage.
“Before I married Glory, I warned her that I needed only two kids irrespective of their gender so that I can afford their upkeep. She agreed only for her to discard the agreement after marriage.”
“My wife wants to kill me with children. She is giving birth to children like rabbits. In nine years, she has delivered six babies”, he added.
“She was sacked from her workplace just because she gets pregnant immediately after she resumes from maternity leave,’’ Mr. Ayinde said.
He revealed that he had to sell his cars and some of his properties to be able to cater for the six children.
He therefore told the court that he could no longer bear it and he wanted end his 9-year marriage.
Akin Akinniyi, the presiding officer of the Igando Customary Court in Kenya said that it was obvious from available testimony and the wife’s refusal to appear in court that the marriage had hit the rocks.
“Throughout the duration of this case, the respondent (Glory) refused to honor court processes", the judge stated
“Therefore, the court has no choice than to dissolve the marriage; the court hereby pronounce the marriage between Mr. Michael Ayinde and Mrs. Glory Ayinde dissolved."
“Both parties henceforth cease to be husband and wife and are free to go their separate ways without any hindrance or molestation,’’ Mr. Akinniyi ruled.
