    Nigerian court grants man divorce over wife's 'late meals'. Is this a "deal breaker" for you?

    "She does not prepare my food on time and I have warned her several times, but she would not listen to me," He also said: "There is no point in harboring a wife that makes me hungry. I am totally fed up." Olufade & Adekoya Olusola had been married for (25 years). Another 32-year-old Nigerian  businessman filed for divorce hours after his expensive wedding when he discovered his bride had been wearing a "butt pad" to augment the size of her rear. Should "irreconcilable differences" be the standard (worldwide reason) for filing for a divorce instead of being forced to list a reason?

    People want to get a divorce when they want to. For the first guy, I think a more matured approach like seeking a counselor would have been better but for the second guy wearing butt pad is disrespectful and it's cheating, as long as relationship is concerned. I would have done the same thing if I was in his shoes.

      Really? women wear figure enhancing garments a lot -often to appear more beautiful to their man, or to look nicer in their clothing. That's not cheating, that's a fashion choice.

      "wearing butt pad is disrespectful and it's cheating..." WOW!
      Use to be having sex with someone else was cheating, having a secret chat friend online was emotional cheating, and now a butt pad is cheating? What's next hair extensions & makeup?

      When you don't allow yourself to be loved just the way you are and attracting the right people by being real, such treatment should be expected. It's not just about makeup, it is also about going too far to hiding the real person you are.

      Everyone dresses up or makes attempt to look their best for special occasions. Depending on how long the courtship was it's doubtful the bride wore a butt pad every single day. You'd also think he would have touched her behind prior to marriage.

    C'mon now, GROW UP.  These issues are so petty.  If the wife makes a late meal so what.  Is the husband a baby?  He has TWO HANDS, if he does not like the fact that his wife makes him a "late meal", guess what- he's a BIG BOY, HE CAN COOK HIS OWN MEALS.   Now to the second scenario, so what if the bride wears an enhancer.  More power to her.  Marriage is for grown ups and it is obvious by the abovementioned scenario at hand, these "men" are merely little boys who need a swift slap to reality.  One does not divorce over such trivialities.   I can see divorce over more egregious issues such as abuse, extreme selfishness, and socioeconomic laxity, not "late meals" and body enchancers. C'mon now!

      I agree.  The only positive here is at least these ladies are now free from these obviously emotionally immature men.  Good grief.  Too bad they can't "counter sue" the men for being petty and ridiculous

      Seems hard to believe these reasons for filing divorce would be a "deal breaker" for anyone. Clearly these men were not "in love" with these women.

    If these men were socked with hefty alimony payments, I'd bet they'd reconsider!  LOL!

    Dashing.....Personally I think that poor man was within his rights!  What is wrong with his wife??   She should know that once she hears his car pull into the driveway, it's time to pop that damned frozen dinner in the microwave!!   
    It took him 25 years to throw in the towel?  What a guy!!
