Dada Oluwaseyi, the presiding Judge of a Customary Court sitting in Jikwoyi, Abuja, on Friday admonished one Mrs Murikat Nura to be submissive to her husband.
The Judge gave the advice when the case was mentioned in court.
The husband, Mr Matthew Nura, took the matter to the court, accusing Murikat of always fighting and disrespecting him.
“You don’t marry a man you cannot submit to. For the fact that you have married him, you are bound to submit to him.
“This is the exact reason why I always advise parties intending to tie the knot to be sure before they say ‘I do’.
“Don’t have a mindset that there is an option to opt-out. Women be submissive to your husband, so it is written in the holy book,” the judge said.
Oluwaseyi advised the couple to think about the children that came out of their marriage before making any decision.
“Don’t let those little kids be products of a broken home, for their sake please drop your ego, pride and unforgiving attitude.
“Reason beyond the flesh; marriages got bad because we reason in the flesh. For the sake of these little children, I want you both to reconcile,” the judge added.
Oluwaseyi, therefore, adjourned the matter till July 27, for a report of the settlement.
