I will not starve you sexually again, wife tells husband

A 62-year-old wife, Tawakalitu Ariori, on Thursday promised her husband, Mustafa, 64, that she would no longer starve him sexually, as a Lagos Island Customary Court reconciled them.
Tawakalitu, mother of two, also promised Mustafa that she would change for better, cook for him and satisfy him sexually any time he desired.
“I thought that since I have reached menopause I cannot make love with my husband anymore, but now I know better,” she said.
Mustafa had on June 1 urged the court to dissolve the 32-year-old marriage to his wife over sex starvation.
He said the major cause of their marital problem was because his wife had stopped cooking for him and satisfying him sexually.
He said their children and other members of the family had also pleaded on her behalf.
“My wife has promised to change and I have forgiven her,” Mustafa said.
The President of the Court, Awos Awosola, urged the couple to go and put their home in order.
“If you take care of your wife and make her happy, she will also go to any length to please you,” Awosola said.
