    1. This judge is out of his mind! He can be your friend and provide for the kids but won't make a great companion or husband. He might not respect you, give you peace and be faithful to you. Some people are better far away from you for peace to reign. Lilian should appeal in high court and this time she has proof of him having more kids, 2 more kids have added to the equation. Ubi has now 5 kids, his son in the village is well kept.

    1. The judge is actually doing her job diligently. Divorce proceedings is about proving you two have tried everything and it is not just working and there are VALID reasons why the marriage should be dissolved. Like she said, if you are co parenting perfectly and are actually good friends then way are you divorcing in the first place...out the same energy into making the marriage work. Divorce proceeds are in family court and are supposed to do the right thing for the child/children involved and since Ubi and Lilian has refused to tell anyone the main reason why they want a divorce then it should as well stay married.

    5. Marriage is dissolved under Nigerian Law for reasons of irreconcilable difference; marriage had broken down irretrievably or it was not consummated. They should have adduced reasons for their case but they did not. For people saying he had 20 baby mamas the court does not come to social media and even if it does it will not judge based on heresay you have to proof your assertions.

      She should have found a way to tell the court that their marriage is beyond repairs. i.e. irretrievably broken down due to irreconcilably differences. Its not nollywood where you see all manner of things on TV or Niyi Johnson will come and tell you Toyin did not sign divorce papers like we are all novice like him.

    5. A judge in the western world can do that if the reason isn't valid enough, we don't know what the reason was so we shouldn't say what we don't know. Haven't other celebrities been parting ways? Did dey ask them to go work things out,until their reasons are enough grounds for a divorce the court will grant them one. That's why some people go as far as setting up one partner so that their divorce petition can be granted

First when the chips are down you will be surprised that the facts are not as you read and assume on social media. and next time farabale and listen to people who know. Matrimonial law in Nigeria requires you to adduce reasons for divorce so if she did not give any reason and just said she wants out then the Judge will be wrong to divorce them and the aggrieved party could have won at an appeal. even if she just did not feel safe in the marriage anymore she should have explained why she believes she cant work it out anymore.

    Why the drama!!!!!! !
    What is unheard of or unusual about the court refusing to grant an order dissolving the union?


    This happens all the time. The court will never grant a relief sought, if the party praying for such relief does not show through facts and proof that he or she is entitled to the relief.


    So please, write properly next time. Simply say the court didn't grant the order sought because the party claiming the relief failed to establish his/her claim.

    Some lawyers also visit this blog, so don't write like you are writing for novices.

  22. Obviously the seperation was due to Ubi's infidelity. That alone is enough for divorce and it is the responsibility of the father to pay child support to the mother of the child whose custody the child is under.

      Not to mention the expectations that people must be bitter enemies for them to want to be separated or divorced. This is simply not true. And should not be encouraged.

      The ruling isn't a big deal. It happens all the time, some courts routinely refer divorce cases for mediation and reconciliation . It is all in the hope to ' preserve the family unit'. She should just stahd be ground through all the court ordered reconciliation efforts and then reapply.

  46. I'm not a lawyer but I strongly believe the judge worked with the information both parties presented. As bad as I hate infidelity, I also believe there's room for repentance and forgiveness. Theirs is loud cos of their status in the society. There are several men doing worse than Ubi yet the women/wives won't complain. I know of a lady whose husband caught with charms, chanting incantations with his name, guess what? He forgave her and today they're celebrated in their circle. It's totally up to them to decide what they want and how they want it.

    1. Do we think Lilian's hands are clean, or Ubi doesn't know? Or that he hasn't presented that to the judge? We know Ubi's own cos women are dragging him on social media openly and he's accepting some at least. Lilian hasn't gotten pregnant, that we know of. But isn't she playing around? The judge will say "these two deserve each other, don't go and inflict yourselves on other people in the name of marriage only to come back again for another divorce."

  47. Hehehehehe
    Maybe they didn't give sufficient reasons, probably flimsy excuses. Cos I am sure if DV was listed, no judge will ignore that.

  52. The judge is right and has to rely on what was filed before the court. No doubt they had their child in mind and didn't want to wash their dirty linen in public. If Lilian says he provides for their son and they are VERY good friends, then what is the ground for divorce? Nothing. Lilian needs to file the case again citing that they are not compatible, adultery, deceit, having children outside of wedlock, etc. Then she will get her divorce. You can't get divorce by being nice.

    ReplyDelete
  53. It's not unheard of. And its not as strange as some people assume. The same way two families can tell their children who say they're not doing again, to go and work out their differences is how some courts behave. People do not get married or divorced on social media - you do it traditionally, in court or in licensed church.

    The judge is working on information that wasn't made available to the public. Also the fact that Ubi and Lilian have never actually said anything bad publicly about each other is something the judge would have taken into consideration. How social media activity impacts on matrimonial cases is not set in stone and it's still evolving because social media is pretty new (as compared with marriage anyway). But let me put it this way. There are no SM pictures or videos of alleged domestic violence like Tonto Dikeh's case. They might hate each other privately but they're not dragging each other on SM. None of them has written a book to accuse the each other of all sorts like Toke Makinwa. None of them has attributed their separation to social media, so for eg one says the other was cheating with someone they met on social media.

    You do not get a divorce just because two of you agree to do so. It's not pepper in the market that you can buy, just because you want to. Contrary to what people seem to think, courts make getting divorces difficult for a reason. Everyone has an amount of crase inside them that can make them or the other party to say dem no do again, and they regret it tomorrow cos that thing is not really an issue or it could have been managed or someone overreacted. People have hot temper or village demons wain-ing their button; they say things they don't really mean but carry on just to prove they are powerful enough to do what they said they would. Courts don't encourage such behaviour.

    There must be proof that the marriage has irretrievably broken down - so someone is in danger, or another thing that's caused irreconcilable differences.

    ReplyDelete
  54. so if you want to get divorced with no serious evidence, there is no divorce. But there are other divorce stories where there is no tangible reason except they don't love one another anymore and they still get the divorce. How does it work sef?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That is hearsay or maybe not under Nigerian law. In Nigeria there must be a reason why you think your differences are irreconcilable. So in case of no love between parties explain what took the love and how it is impacting you physiologically. You just need to proof your case reasonably.

      Delete
  55. There's nothing new here. There's what is called the 2 year rule after marriage. You cannot file for divorce until 2 years after the marriage was contracted, unless there are extraordinary factors like excessive drug abuse, venereal diseases or domestic violence. Even after the 2 year rule elapses, there are grounds for divorce. So even if you endured 2 years of unhappiness and you now what a divorce, your reason(s) must fall under one of the grounds of dissolution of marriage. You must show that the marriage has broken down irretrievably.

    There are about 8 grounds for divorce, failure to consummate the marriage, i.e that your spouse has NEVER had sex with you since you guys were married. There's the ground of adultery but you must also join the person he/she cheated with as co-respondent and have evidence of the adultery. You must also prove that it has become unbearable to live with the cheating spouse. Adultery is very difficult to prove in court. There's also the ground of desertion, that your spouse has abandoned the matrimonial home for at least 1 year prior to filing for divorce or both parties have lived apart continuously for over 2 years. There are other grounds I don't remember now. However "I am no longer happy in my marriage" is certainly not one of the grounds.

    If you cannot satisfactorily prove to the court that the marriage has broken down irretrievably, no court will grant the dissolution of that marriage. I believe they filed for divorce too soon. Now that they have been separated for some time, either or both of them can file for divorce again after a year or a couple of years as long as they have not been living under the same roof at any time during the separation.

    That the judge said they should go and work on their marriage, doesn't mean they must reconcile and stay together. They can remain separated, doing their own thing. Another factor is the mindset of the judge, it comes to play whether they admit it or not. I remember a female judge who was also a pastor at RCCG, Omg! Thank goodness she's retired now. To get a dissolution of marriage in her court was a herculean task! She will so frustrate the petitioner that he/she will be tempted to remain married by force. She will keep adjourning the cases, sometimes she even scolds the petitioner if the respondent isn't willing to end the marriage. She will bring Scriptures into the matter and tell the petitioner that he/she is hell bound. Lol! Those were the days. Sometimes we deliberately stayed back to watch proceedings if we see that her cause list has dissolution of marriage listed.

    1. Judge is even far. I've heard of female lawyers who start preaching forgiveness and submission at consultation stage to a potential client who is physically bleeding and bruised after an instance of domestic violence. Imagine someone who wants to file for divorce having the misfortune of meeting such a lawyer. They won't even get to see any judge.

  58. First ask the question of ; if Lilian’s basis were on cheating and character.
    Irreconcilable difference isn’t just enough. Lilian have been trying to play cool and smooth and refusing to say things as it should be, knowing any evidence she brings to court will make it to the blogs. So if she truly is ready to get divorced, she will name his sins as untainted as they are, but she is saving her name and sanity of her son. You just loosing interest after months of marriage isn’t reasonable for divorce anywhere.

  61. It's normal. Divorce is never easily granted. I was married to my ex husband/boyfriend for just six weeks and we separated (informally). I actually only needed the document at the time to process my visa to visit him as a girlfriend but embassy refused me initially for lack of sufficient proof of the relationship. Unfortunately, the visit turned out horrible and we parted ways six weeks later. Three years later, I filed for divorce and since we had been 'separated' for so long, naturally the marriage contract becomes null and void. Yet, if you know what my eyes saw before the judge granted the divorce. I had to prove beyond doubts with evidence why the marriage didn't work. Thankfully, ex-hubby did not appear in court at all. That was the only saving grace. The judge even insinuated that my lawyer was planning to divorce his wife and was planning to marry me. He then forbade my lawyer from having any form of relationship with me. He said we must leave the court room in opposite directions hehehehe! It wasn't funny like this that day o.

    2. I tell you Anon 22.43. That's when I understood what it meant when they say "marriage is easy to rush into but difficult to rush out of". The judge insisted that all my arguments and defences, including extreme domestic violence, financial irresponsibility, emotional abuse, 'sexual abuse' etc including the 3 year separation, plus the obvious fact that we had no kids together, still was not sufficient for him to grant the divorce. He said we didn't mention any case of infidelity or inability to perform sexual duties. Unknown to the judge, the lawyer was my uncle and he knew how important it was for me to get the divorce ahead of when when I'm eventually ready to get married for real. My lawyer therefore fought frantically to ensure he proved the irrevocability of the marriage beyond doubts. I can't begin to mention the things he had to come up with, in evidence to convince this judge. Yet, he declined, saying, looking at me, he sees I'm a pretty girl and that he suspects my lawyer had eyes on me, hence why my lawyer 'carried the matter for head'. And that i may be the reason behind my lawyer's tumultuous marriage since coincidentally, my uncle was having issues in his marriage at the time too. Infact he was already threatening the wife with divorce which the judge was privy to having become close friends with my uncle on the job. We told him our relationship(uncle-niece) but he refused to believe. He just laughed and said 'Na today?! Abegiiii!" He said I had 'oju ton soro' meaning seductive eyes. He eventually granted the divorce on the grounds that the sitting was a subsequent sitting in which my 'ex-hubby' had been invited to court but refused to show up (to tell his side of the story). He thereafter insisted we exited the courtroom by different doors and monitored me to ensure I did not look back or have any conversation with my lawyer on my way to the car park. He made someone follow me all the way. I didn't find it funny at all but everybody in the courtroom laughed over it. He was a funny man though. I know this cos I remember him cracking jokes in previous court sessions I witnessed before mine. Now that i look back I'm thinking he probably meant it as a joke but meeeeen, fear catch me that day ehn?! It was as if he would never grant the divorce.

  62. Na wa ooo, may be they want to come together & work on their marriage & you all are here killing yourself over them last time I checked Lilian anit an angel too, so they deserve each other

  63. Lilian go hear..nwiah!!!😭😭😭
    Poor woman!
    She should go learn work nau.. for where Tonto dey!

    *the main issue / fault is: where they legally separated & with proof showing that for the required amount of time, before rushing to the divorce court???

    *** another (igbese) wahala for Lilian's head now is that Ubi's baby mamas can drag her into their child support mess, and rope her together with Ubi to cough out ridiculous sums of money for payment to these women & their kids!
    It is very tricky situation. Whereby if u r a successful woman & economically well off, it may be 1000000× better for u stay unmarried (legal) to a man. GO & ASK OPRAH!!!
    A very crafty monkey(man) can rope u into unbelievable.. igbese (shenenigans) just for the sake of legally getting married.

    I'm very Lilian's plight now. She's in for sh1t. Ubi is bad news!!!
