A trader, simply identified as Ogene has sent his wife packing out of their home, after she confessed that her womb was damaged and she could not bear children.
The wife, Rita said her womb had been damaged during an abortion when she was in secondary school in Onitsha town in Anambra state, PM News reports.
Rita was said to have keept this secret from her husband for five years after their traditional and church marriage.
After their marriage, the couple started seeking solution when Rita could not give birth. They sought medical help which cost a huge sum of money.
When it wasn’t yielding results, they sought spiritual help, which led Rita to meet a pastor to whom she revealed her predicament on why she was unable to get pregnant.
She was advised by the pastor to embark on fasting and prayers and ask God for forgiveness, after which she should confess to her husband and also seek his forgiveness.
The pastor was said to have assured her that with the prayers, her husband would forgive her and would still take her as his wife.
Unfortunately, the pastor’s words failed her as after confessing, her husband sent her away from his house.
Ogene, a trader at Head Bridge market in Onitsha was angry that his wife had kept such information from him and made him waste huge sums of money on medical treatment, saying there was no marriage in the first instance between them because she lied to him.
After he sent her packing, Ogene went to the Anglican church marriage counsel in Awka and sought for the dissolution of the marriage, which the church granted.
