Subject , ,

This involves a petition for divorce filed and praying the Court to dissolve a monogamous marriage celebrated on 04/08/09 at the Bamenda II Civil Status Registration Centre. The petitioner contends that, after their marriage, the respondent (wife) has been behaving abnormally, such as refusing him to have his conjugal rights with her, and consequently they have been living apart since 20/05/2012. That applicant argues that the said respondent has been living with her boyfriend and never cares about him nor does she know the where-about of their child. However, the respondent argued in the contrary and stated that it was the applicant that was rude to her and that her refusal to have sexual intercourse with him was due to a doctor’s recommendation which the applicant was very much supposed to be aware of. The Court holds that the marriage would be dissolved accordingly, since both parties have already broken it down. Considering the tender age of the child, the Court places him under the custody of the mother. The petitioner is however accorded visiting rights to the child and is ordered to make a monthly allocation of 30.000 FCFA for the child’s upkeep, as well as cater for his educational and healthcare needs.
