- A tavern owner in Pretoria left the court frustrated as his attempts to get half of his ex-wife’s assets fell on deaf ears
- His wife denied him conjugal rights for 2 years but the court ruled in her favour due to his promiscuity
- She is a nurse by profession and is the owner of their house
A tavern owner was left empty-handed following recent court proceedings relating to his divorce.
Based in Pretoria, the man felt he is entitled to half of his ex-wife’s house and pension.
One of his bones of contention was that his ex-wife denied him conjugal rights for 2 years but the court still ruled in her favour.
His ex-wife is a nursing sister and owns the home they lived in.
According to her, she was not intimate with him due to his promiscuity throughout their marriage.
She also revealed that the man verbally abused her during their marriage.
She said, “He is promiscuous and also had several other sexual relationships with various other women. He is extravagant and spends his money on these women.”
IOL News reported that the court heard that the man hardly contributed to the upkeep of the house and that he only purchased a ring and watch for his ex-wife as gifts during their 7 year marriage.
The man claimed to have been faithful and said that the women were business partners and friends.
Briefly.co.za understands that Judge Daisy Molefe spoke of the nurse’s credibility and ruled in her favour.
According to Molefe, the ex-wife contributed to her own pension during their marriage, which amounted to R2 million.
Due to the fact that no proof existed of his contribution to the household and his infidelity, she ruled that he should not benefit from the estate.
