A 55-year-old man filed for divorce because his 30-year-old wife smells bad and is very lazy, according to court documents in Nigeria.

Elder Moses Ajuwa told the Lagos Family Court, that his wife made it impossible for him to continue sleeping with her in bed and wants the court to dissolve his three-year-old marriage to Hauwa.

In addition to her bad body odor, Hauwa is lazy and has not fulfilled her obligations as a married woman. He also complained that his wife never cooks, and always goes out to party.

Ajuwa told the judge that he married his wife after his first wife died. He thought that Hauwa will cook for him and take care of his needs.

Ajuwa testified that every corner of their house stinks, and all the rooms are full of dirty clothes. Ajuwa cannot have sex with his wife because she smells very bad.

He claimed that she never takes showers. Hauwa denied all the allegations. Hauwa told the court that her husband wants her to dress like an older woman despite the fact that she is just 30 years old.

She also said that it is difficult to clean the house because it is too large.
