CONFESSION……Why I married two husbands



A middle aged woman married to two husbands has asked an Idi-Ogungun Customary Court sitting in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital to divorce her and one of the husbands.

Modinat Mufutau told the court on Tuesday how she alternated two husbands in order to satisfy herself and get enough money to take care of her three children.

She had had two children for the first husband (Mufutau) and one for another husband (Saheed).

Modinat approached the court to dissolve her 12-year-old relationship to one of her husbands, Mr. Ajadi Mufutau, for alleged lack of care and maltreatment.

She told the court that she met Mufutau in 2005, and he impregnated her without marriage formalities.

She said that at the beginning of the relationship, Mufutau pretended to be a nice and responsible man but later changed to maltreat her.

“But when he impregnated me, he began maltreating and beating me whenever I demanded money for antenatal care.

“I left his house after delivery and hooked up with another man, Saheed who impregnated me two years later but turned me into a punching bag after delivery of my second child for him.

“Later, I settled down with Mufutau, got pregnant for him again, but Saheed who I have the second child for begged me to continue with him.

“I decided to date two of them without any problem until they met each other in my rented apartment and fought.

“My Lord, I have made up my mind to divorce Mufutau because he had stopped giving me money for the maintenance of the two kids”.

Mufutau, however, did not object to Modinat’s request.

He said, “Modinat is a shameless woman. I was not aware that she still dates Saheed until I met him in the apartment I rented for her and she did not see anything bad in her action.

“I just pray the court to allow the first child be in my custody so that I can properly take care of the child and I promise to support her for the care of my second child”.

President of the court, Mr. Mukaila Balogun after listening to both parties agreed and dissolved the union.

Balogun, however, awarded the custody of the first child to Mufutau and the second child to Modinat.

He then told Mufutau to pay N3,500 as monthly allowance for the upkeep of the second child and warned both parties against fomenting trouble again.
