An Abuja-based medical doctor, Chibuzor Eze, has reportedly threatened to divorce his wife over her addiction to popular foreign soap opera, Telemundo and the Zeeworld channel.
According to reports, Eze, a pediatrician who works with one of the government hospitals in Abuja, said he had informed his wife, Dorothy, a week ago that her obsession to the popular soaps was interfering with her marital life.
Eze explained that apart from having to buy food from restaurants because his wife literally forgets to prepare food after fixing her gaze on the television, he is left to tend to some house chores.
He allegedly threatened to divorce his wife soon if she does not change and concentrate on her wifely duties.
Eze was quoted to have said, “I will divorce my wife if she doesn’t stop with this Zeeworld and Telemundo obsession.
“On Tuesday, she forgot to pick our 10-year-old daughter from school because she was watching her shows.
“If these careless acts continue, I will be forced to leave her, because I won’t appreciate coming home to a burnt down house one day.
“I told her last week that I was fed up with how her obsession with these channels was making her to neglect her duty as a wife and mother, yet she keeps watching these shows when she’s supposed to be partaking in more important things like taking care of the children and cooking reasonable food for us.
“I bought food from restaurants four times last week, as my wife had either forgotten to prepare food for the family or burnt the food she was preparing because she was watching Zeeworld and Telemundo.
“I came home to an empty pot or burnt food and this is unacceptable.’’ he said.
“Tell me, is this not enough to sue for divorce.
“As a doctor, I have a very hectic job and should come home to a tasty hot meal,” he reportedly said.
