Their exist divorce but that is not the issue here. If you remember, former Arsenal player Emmanuel Eboue was divorce by his wife and his wealth was given to her making Eboue bankrupt and living with nothing but thanks to his old club Arsenal. Janet Jackson married an Arab who struggle to have One billion dollar as net worth but that month he was divorced only for Janet to take half of his wealth... Have you forgotten Kim?
This law, how right and how practicable is it in Nigeria? Ur wife divorce u and live u with whatever she feels is enough for u to eat just because she give birth to you or is ur wife. And how will our Nigerian women react at the knowledge of such law in Nigeria?. Should it be introduce into the Nigerian Constitution?
Share your views.
It should be introduced because it is supposed to be that what ever you made when both of you are still together is the effort you the man and the wife, and if need be that they go their separate ways, the two parties shall share their property equally
Actually the westerners colonized us and thought us most (if not virtually everything) things we practice but we shouldn't forget that we have our own culture which nullifies their practices and other things.
We shouldn't abolish our culture and follow the whites to do whatsoever they do.
Nigerian women will misuse such law if introduced and henforced in Nigeria, we are now in a nation where people wants everything for themselves even between the couples, you will just discover the woman will want to use that means as a payback/punishment or wickedness because he saw her husband with a girlfriend or aasumed her husband is stingy to his family...
The law is the law regardless of who it may hurt but I think why the women that divorce their husbands abroad get half of the property is because maybe the husband has put their name as part owner or full owner of some/most of their properties. Such laws shouldn't be allowed in Nigeria cos if such happens, there would be high rate of divorce here
It can be introduced and it can't, It Base on who called for divorcement among them. If is Man divorce his wife, good they could share his wealth with her not to leave her for nothing. But if it's woman divorce while would she be able to to have shares in my own property, since she's the one divorced. That's my opinion on this.
In my own opinion, I do not support divorce, it's meant to be for better for worse, couple should find other ways of tackling their issues rather than divorce , also before getting married, get to know your partner more. Don't rush into marriage. With these points, I think I do not support the introduction in Nigeria.
in a Africa as a whole it will be too hard to be introduced, because our mentality and there are not the same. In Nigeria it can't be done rather the court,will ask both of you whether you throughly want divorce, if you do agree you can,go a separate ways ,not going away with your property.
Yeah we need to introduce it jn Nigeria, it will curb a lot of excesses from the men,they will be able to fulfil their responsibilities when they know their money is at stake.
It is no longer a question of should it be introduced because it is already a law in Nigeria though not in the 1999 constitution but it is under the matrimonial Acts and also the woman takes half of the man's property as far as they were legally married
I think if Nigeria introduced this law in our constitution it an opportunity for some woman who don't like their husband any more or practice adultery because when they know that once if they divorce their husband all the property will be give to them and man will be totally slave, but Nigeria constitution for divorce is base on who called for divorce among them. We don't need such law in Nigeria constitution.
Although the Bible is not in support of divorce,i feel is someone is not happy with his or her marriage,he or she should let go to avoid more troubles that come with it
Anyways it should be introduced in Nigeria because most men now feel divorce is just telling your wife without nothing and making her helpless and mostly,its the woman who has the kids giving her much responsibilities with less funds
I don't think there should be anything called divorce. Because the Bible stated it clearly that God hates divorce. Since that is the most baffling thing happening in most marriages today, As we've seen may cases of the wife struggling to get food in the table for the children after divorce... Then I thick the law should be implemented also in Nigeria. As to help reduce the rate of unnecessary divorce and sufferings!
I will say let this police be manifest in this country because if you notice what so many lady's have suffered in the hands of thier husbands, I will say that the best option is to bring up this police, I belt you that every man in Nigeria will mend their ways in treating their wifes, but on the other hand I am proud of Nigerian for not falling victim of this divorce case Nigerian is the best in marriage.
This laws should never be introduced to the Nigerian constitution. Because she's my wife doesn't meant she should make me go bankrupt just on the basis of "she's my wife" imagine if this law is included in our constitution, the greedy Nigerian ladies will see it as an opportunity to get into innocent rich men who knows that they need a life supporting character, they'll turn into con artist and after some years of marriage they'll decide to divorce the man and go away with his wealth. This laws should never be included in our constitution.
Divorce has been in Nigerian Law.. it's only applicable to those who did court marriage and while doing the court marriage, an agreement will be draw between you and your wife, you guys will only share properties that uu acquired during the period youre both married.. anything you acquired before the marriage belongs to you..
The illustration you gave, the court does that when the guy happens to be the cause for the divorce or so the lady won't have to change her life style simply because you are not married to her again
Though divorce has been in Nigeria from inception but it not be encourager because also d bible commanded that a man and a woman should leave their parents house and be united
And d bible also instructed we should go into d world and multiply so divorce should be discouraged
I strongly disagree on introducing such laws to Nigeria. It will give a lot of women the chance to just use men and then wreck them all in the name of divorce. This is not fair to hardworking men that struggle to make a good living and stay above the water, especially in this type of bad economy.
The stigma of divorce is what is still keeping a lot of marriages together and also make some women endure violence in their matrimonial home. Divorce should be like the last plan out after trying everything to make it work and not a strategy to get quick money, therefore this law shouldn't be introduced to Nigeria at all.
On my take on this topic, I strongly disagree with the issue of divorce.
First the holy scripture said and they both become one, for better and for worse, come rain come shine.
Also the very attitude or character that led you refused to put away and led to divorce will also ruin your life.
If by mistake this law or act is introduced then the gene of corruption and greenness including all act of covetousness will disturb the mind of all Nigeria women and turn divorce to biscuits and sweet just because of properties and inheritance.
Yunno the law favours the women when they've concrete evidence of their husband infidelity or something meaningful and win the case, but if it the other way round I tell you it up to the man to decide what to will to the woman and research shows that if the man plans ahead and will virtually everything he has like 4years prior to any divorce hearing the woman have everything to lose.
that clus in the marriage rights is criminal and is encouraging criminality in the marital constitution, people come to you after you have made it through the though time, all in he name of love but hidden agenda and black mail.at the end and steal from you. it's bad, if any marriage lacks children then the properties will be :0 to 30%, the wealth creator takes the lion share. I drop my pen here.
Its a two way thing.it will be nice if it is introduced in Nigeria to corp all those men that maltreat their women,but then Nigerian women can be funny taking advantage of such to torment their husband too...last last we don't want it in Nigeria.
Divorce seems too impossible in the Nigerian system. The issues of sharing of property makes it hard and hence most men don't even bother going for court marriages. Don't you see that court marriage is as good as dead in Nigeria? And it's our only legally recognized marriage system at that.
If this is sign into law in Nigeria from the look of things, no one will accept to bear the lost. From what has been happening in Nigeria, a celebrity will get married and also divorce the same year or after giving birth to one child for the husband from there you will note that it will be a terrible situation in Nigeria and some men in Nigeria will choose not to marry but to get what they want on contract either.
I will not buy the idea of introducing such law I this our Ash nation called Nigeria. The introduction of this law will make virtually 70 to 80% of the woman to misbehave and they will turn themselves to mini gods and on any slight provocation by the husband the threat of divorce will be the next thing.
For this reason I won't encourage the introduction of such law of divorce in Nigeria
I just saw someone post saying it should also be introduced into our system sorry to say but you didnt think well because if you did you will realize that divorce Is wrong I mean wrong in this part of the country.
In the western world their culture gives way to it but ours doesn't.
This is complicated, it will be nice in one aspect if the wife is loyal to his husband and really love her home, but in a situation where the woman is the one frustrating the husband if such should happen the husband will be of regret so the issue is good at one side but not that okay in other side.
I do not encourage that in this country.
All I know is that we have a better culture than all those imposed and imported but useless culture and attitude.
And if you are here try and never allow tour family to be the first to start it or else you will die before your time
If this would help reduce the rate of divorce and help ladies escape becoming single mums, I think it should be introduced and if it has the backing of the Nigerian Judiciary council the it will stay.
It shouldn't because there is cultural differences and what is good for a one might not be bad for another, in essence what I'm saying is what is working for the Western country might not be just or be taking advantage of over here
I think it should not be practice in Nigeria . It's not in our culture for women to divorce their husbands. Even if it happens, the woman in question is believed to have nothing to go with. Women don't have right over their husbands property be it house, land etc. Instead the children. It should not be practice in Nigeria .
We definitely do not need this practice in Nigeria. It will just be an avenue for gold diggers to feast on. Nigeria is already hard enough for someone to walk away with half of what you spent a large part of your life gathering
It will help to reduce rate of windows if the husbands knows his wealth are going to be shared with his wife he won't divorce her its only religious teach will not allowed us to practice such value
Already it is ongoing in our country Nigeria. Look at out court marriag where a woman will share whatever the husband has including children, if it is only a house, the rooms will be shared according to both of them. But if introduced constitutionally, the rate of divorce will be much especially for thosr men or women who hold tight their money.
This issue is so common this days but I think it is better in some situation in this country because the way some men maltreat their wife is so bad and if the law is used on people like that it will be great.
No we shouldn't follow in such practices , we have our culture , so we should follow it... Not that men should take advantage of it by treating his wife badly or become a wife beater ........But check in a way where you get married and ur wife divorces you in a twinkle of an eye there by given her almost all your wealth.... If we copy that system African women will take it for granted .... When you have an issue as a normal thing in every relationship she threatens you with "DIVORCE"... I SAY NO TO IT.
I think all properties and investment should be by 30 to 70%, I mean 30%for the man and 70% for the woman, because most times the children tend to go with their mother and by so, she carries much responsibilities
That law left to me, needs a proper review before being introduced to Nigerian homes. Imagine a country where everything is being abused. That'll become a new hustle for some of our girls, they'll only go into marriage with wealthy men for selfish reasons, just to ruin them(the men) at the long haul.
Hunnnn nigeria ke,to me it we be very bad to introduce such law to the constitution of nigeria .how we the man take care of his/children.apart from that what about health care..very !very.bad. the law should be santion.
Any kind of law can be introduced into any system whatsoever, the officials in charge of making and enforcing the law have the final say about it .. the issue is how the newly initiated law benefit the people it governs over
The law governing splitting of properties after divorce is most times bounded by a contract between the couples, a contract signed when blinded by love during the marriage procession
No matter how strict a law is .. there is mostly a way to bending such laws. What's actually important is to always keep the public updated on put in place laws of the society
Divorce was permitted as a result of man's hardness of heart and incorregibility.
The woman being humbled by the man and who have spent the better part of her life with the man just to abandoned by the man demands great compensation and consolation if man were to have his way.
Divorce is not the perfect will of God but I think that God who instituted marriage can settle any difference in it. The law of compensating the woman is the not the best solution.
I don't really love and borrow the idea of those that always divorce each other because I can say in that western country they are using it to scam each other since they know that if they request for divorce they will share the properties in to two .and someone that did not work for it will now collect someone else properties that's they reason why I don't like the divorce in western country .
Each nation has its own peculiarities and divorce in the west is rampant because of the nature of the law and it's protection of the woman. Over here the law should not be introduced for it would increase the rate of divorce at the slightest provocation by the man
Divorce your husband and share whatever he have together hmmmm, as far as am concern I will never support such law or Constitution because this is Africa infact nigeria to be precise which our tradition and culture is quite different from of colony despite that they colonies us
This law should not be introduced. Personally, I dislike the concept because females can misuse it because money will become the new reason for marriage. And if it is implemented, our "oga's at the top" who are married to young ladies will be the ones to suffer it the most.
This is why I love Nigeria, they won't implement such laws. I don't think its okay to follow everything that the whites people do.
Its another way of promoting divorce and its not good in anyway.
Even if such law was implemented in Nigeria, most women will abuse it and they will turn to something else.
