Wife Risks Divorce Over Alleged Insubordination

Published

on

Mrs Victoria Egemonu, a mother of five, may possibly be shown the way out of her matrimonial home should the plea of her husband be honoured by a  Lagos-based customary court.

A 44-year-old civil servant, Mr Vitus Egemonu, on Tuesday pleaded with the Grade ‘A’ Customary Court, Agege, Lagos, to divorce his marriage of 16 years over his spouse’s alleged disobedience, lack of respect and threat to life.

The father of five children, aged between six years and 15 years, and who lives at No. 9, Olowo St., Papa Ashafa, Agege, Lagos, told the court that his voice had not been heard in his home in the past 10 years.

“For the past 10 years, my wife has been moving from one church to the other, claiming that it was God that sent her to be doing so.

“She carries the bible from morning till night and has not obeyed what it says about a wife being submissive to her husband.

“She has refused to cook at home for the past 15 months, meaning that I have not eaten at home since then, all in the name of church programmes, bible colleges and fellowships,’’ he said.

Egemonu also told the court that his wife, Victoria, had fought with almost all the tenants in their house, all in the name that God told her that they were all witches and wizards.

“I was a bachelor when I rented the house we are now. I have not fought with anyone in the house, until my wife came in.

“She always fights with our landlady and calls her a witch. My wife told the woman that she used her daughter’s foetus for money; now we have been given a quit notice to move out.

“She brainwashed my daughter such that the girl looked straight in my eyes and said the Lord told her that this year will be a year of joblessness for me,’’ he said.

Egemonu also told the court that his wife said God told her that she should not be celebrating Christmas or put on any red clothes.

“Since then, she doesn’t cook during Christmas. For the past 10 years, my wife has attended up to 20 churches all in the name of God said this, God said that.

“She told my friend that she will prefer to divorce me than to change her ways of life because, according to her, it is God that is at work in her life.

“She doesn’t want to work; she told me that God told her not to work and that if I try to set her up, the business will crumble,” he said.

Egemonu is praying the court for a divorce, as well as the custody of their five children.

“I will commit suicide, if the court doesn’t divorce us,’’ he declared in court.

However, the respondent, 39-year-old Victoria, told the court that she still loved her husband and that she was not ready to divorce him.

“I am a prophet and a pastor called by God to work for him, so the problem with my husband and I started when I became born-again.

“Though we both attended the Catholic Church before I became a child of God, but God doesn’t want me there again.

“I just left the Redeemed Church and I don’t know the next church God will ask me to go to again; God told me not to celebrate Christmas and that I should not put on white clothes and I am obeying him.

“My husband doesn’t sleep at home, yet I have never fought him over that, but I know the reason for this trouble is because I am a prophet of God,” she said.

The Court President, Mr Emmanuel Sokunle, told the woman to complement her pastoral work with some domestic work and to continue to pray to God to change her husband’s heart.

“Since both of you are still staying in the same house, I want you to maintain the peace and I want the husband to still provide for the family as before,” Sokunle said.

He, then, adjourned the case till June 4, for continuation of hearing.

The different types of adaptive clothing for men and women

Published

on

The innovative adaptive clothing has transformed the daily clothing style in a way that any individual with a physical disability, motion-related weakness, or mental conditions can wear it. The carefully crafted designs ensure comfortable dressing experience while promoting personal care for the user for a significant period. The caregivers also feel much at ease at the time of dressing the individuals whose motor skills are primarily affected, who are on wheelchairs, etc. So, if you have someone at your home, who can benefit from these clothes, then buy them a pair of these.

The unique adaptive clothing styles can be found in plenty for both women and men. Here is a quick look at the choices.

Adaptive cloth designs for women

For women, these types of clothes feature a variety of styles including open back, side-zip, cut away, fastener, etc. Let’s take a look at each of them to understand their functionality.

Clothes with side-zips for women

For untroubled dressing and toileting, the pants offer long zippers on either side of the seams. You can combine this with a blouse or t-shirt to complete the look. If you want a relaxed feel, you can choose from slacks that also come with side-zips. Then, there are sweatsuits too in the collection.

Cutaway cloths for women

A cutaway style dress is specially crafted for women with ambulatory problems. It makes the best choice for someone who cannot stand. The dresses are seatless so that toilet and other personal care activities become easy to perform. However, if that is not what one is looking for, then the other option is muu-muu. The muu-muugarments are usually loose fitting with comparatively bigger neckline and raglan sleeves.

By chance, if cutaway doesn’t suit an individual, you can choose from wrap back dresses. This kind of clothes comes with snaps that are located on the shoulder and waist area for closures. A wheelchair user or a bedridden person can feel comfortable in this dress because of the fewer numbers of pressure points.

Women apparels with fasteners

Certain types of illnesses and weaknesses diminish the body’s natural strength, as a result of which, self-dressing becomes impossible. Women may find it difficult to button their blouses with trembling hands. For them, this style features hook and loop closure tabs not only on blouses but pajamas too.

Adaptive cloth designs for men

Just like women, adaptive garments for men also come in distinct designs to make their physical movement inthese daily wears smooth and comfortable. You can find cutaway, open back, side-zip and other such fascinating choices for them. Here is a brief account of this.

Open-back apparels for men

The open back clothes show off snap closures for easy handling. The snaps sit at the strategic points on the spine so that pressure points feel less or no impact. If someone is not able to move his arms, you can look for a shirt with snap closure for him. It is quite useful in the case of dressing and accentuates the formal look. For a bit of casual appearance, the open back t-shirts are perfect. Their invigorating colors and prints are difficult to ignore.

However, the choices are not limited to the ones mentioned above. You can find stylish jumpsuits in this design to keep the person’s modesty intact. Apart from that, nightshirts and sweaters are also there to choose in this line of design so that your loved one can spend their days and nights in a much comfortable way.

Side-zip garments for men

Much like the women, the men clothes with side-zips are quite popular with individuals dealing with dressing and toilet issues. The zippers are longer than the usual ones. You can buy a sweat pant or knit pant in this design from the varieties available online and offline.

Men cutaway clothing

The cutaway designs are common on pants. Those who want to slip on pants but fail to pull their weight to wear them can choose these sets to fulfil their desire. The flap covers the seat area well and can quickly open too when moving from chair to the toilet seat. The cutaway pants also have personal caregivers’ preference.

Hooks-and-loops wears for men

The adaptive clothes come in impressive variations to suit different purposes. If someone doesn’t want to wear a shirt with buttons, he can switch over to fastener styled ones. The hooks and loop tabs replace the buttons at the closure. However, this design has not just been implemented on shirts but pants and pajamas too. Sometimes, medical conditions affect motor skills and curb one’s independence in the matters of toilet and dressing. But with these types of clothes, one can take a sigh of relief to a great extent.

So, there is as such no shortage of designs in this comfort wear for men and women who depend on others for their daily living activities due to injuries or health conditions. You can check Resident Essentials adaptive clothing and others online to get an idea of how these make the life of your loved ones easy. And the best part is, whether they are adult or elderly, you can find something for everyone.

Some cloth stores offer medical condition related dresses too. For example, someone who has Alzheimer may have a need that is unique to his or her illness compared to the one having arthritis. So, before you buy anything, make sure you understand the medical condition of the person and the difficulty he or she faces while performing their daily activities. Quick research on this will be useful. After all, you don’t want to get something that will have no use for your dear one.

Also, different online and offline stores will have their pricing. So, don’t go with the first option you encounter. Search 3 to 4 clothing stores, check their collection, compare the prices, and then take the final call. Some shops provide customization also. In case you want any alteration in functional design, you can talk to them. It may, however, cost you some extra cents.
