Nigerian man filed for divorce from wife just hours after their wedding, because she married him under false pretences

14 Aug

I can understand:

Nigerian entertainment news website Sugar Daily has gathered some of the weirdest divorce applications made to the courts in recent years, including a 32-year-old businessman who filed for divorce just hours after his wedding, after discovering that his bride had been wearing a “butt pad” to enhance the size and shape of her buttocks.

Nothing weird about that; it’s no different from if a Western woman wore a greatly padded bra during her courtship, and then surprised her husband on their wedding night with much smaller boobs than he thought.

Which does happen.

Why shouldn’t a man be upset at being thus deceived?

    I also heard of a Nigerian man divorcing because his wife consistently failed to serve him dinner when he was hungry. I understand both, but, to be honest, the dinner one bothers me more. Yes, butt pads, booster bras and makeup are deceptive. But repeatedly refusing to feed your husband when all he wants to be is “not hungry” shows a level of callousness and unwillingness to change that would rub anyone up the wrong way. Alter your appearance to be more attractive? You’re lying, but it’s also something that’s hard to actually change. Refuse a simple request that would make someone disproportionately happy? You’re basically saying their happiness doesn’t matter to you.

    That’s the main story at the link I gave, and yes, I agree, the dinner one is even more disturbing.

    Maybe he should have tested her, as a means of prompting her to shape up, by refusing to bring home a paycheck for a couple of months or so.

    its even worse than deception according to all the comments on the roosh articles in national post = rape so this poor man was the victim of rape or attempted rape.

    for some reason the commentators don’t agree that if lying about job =deception = rape then make up, push up bras, spanx, botox, hair dye, weaves, extensions, contacts and coloured contacts = deception = rape.

    I agree! i also think the wife should be able to file for divorce if she discovers the husband’s salary was slightly less than he made her believe.

    That would only be fair.

    If it were up to me, any lying or deception about anything whatsoever to one’s fiancé / fiancée ought to be legal grounds for divorce, because any lie or deception, no matter how small, means the marriage is under false pretenses.

    (Not that I’m in favour of frivolous divorce, and in fact, I’d much prefer people made wiser decisions in the first place, obviating any need for divorce later.)

    Will, there is never full sincerity between any two persons, including parents/grown-up children and siblings. Anyway, there is a culture where marriages, at least among better circles, usually happen with lengthy wedding contracts which allow annulment for reasons like mentioned above. It’s called Islam. Though I’m all for prudence, it looks too mercenary to me, but that’s just my opinion.

    I can just hear it now:

    Wife: “Your salary isn’t the only undersized thing about you! Who’re gonna take care of with THAT?!”

    Husband: “Why, ME, of course – just like I will with that other “undersized” thing about me you seem to have such a problem with. By the way, hopefully you won’t mind an undersized stack of divorce papers. They should fit very nicely in that OVERsized purse of yours.”

    @ Sanne: “Will, there is never full sincerity between any two persons, including parents/grown-up children and siblings.”

    True enough, yet hopefully justices would not, say, dissolve a marriage just because one party had an innocuous hobby the other knew nothing about, say. I would expect some prudence in applying such a law, but I’d like genuinely wronged parties to have a fighting chance, at least.

    “Anyway, there is a culture where marriages, at least among better circles, usually happen with lengthy wedding contracts which allow annulment for reasons like mentioned above. It’s called Islam. Though I’m all for prudence, it looks too mercenary to me, but that’s just my opinion.

    I also think Islam goes too far, but then I don’t agree with Islam, anyway.

    @ feeriker: 🙂
