Peter Young, an official of the Federal Road Safety Commission, says his divorce-seeking wife, Dorcas, does not deserve custody of their two children as she had already abandoned them.
 
Young who testified in a divorce suit filed by Dorcas before a Nyanya Customary Court, Abuja, said that the petitioner abandoned the children.
 
Young said, “The reason why I cannot give her my two children is that on May 2, she ran away with one man and did not come back.

“When she eventually came back, she came with her brothers to pick her belongings. I and my uncle were on our knees, begging her to at least go with the little baby that was one year old.

“She refused, saying that her brother said she should pick only what belongs to her. That the children are my blood, so they belong to me.

“I was on my knees crying and begging her, but she refused; now she is coming and want them to be in her custody.”
 
The respondent told the court that he was capable of taking care of the children and would not let them stay with Dorcas.
 
He did not oppose the divorce but urged the court to grant him divorce and custody of the two children of the marriage.
 
Dorcas, the petitioner, denied all the allegations and prayed the court to grant her custody of the children.
 
The Judge, Jemilu Jega, ordered the respondent to bring the children before the court on Sept. 28 for further hearing.

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage.

This is w…
