A COUPLE that came up for divorce at the Matero Local Court due to lack of sex have been reconciled.

Doreen Zulu, 36, of Chaisa compound sued her husband Thomas Zulu of the same compound for divorce due to lack of sex in their marriage..

The two who were appearing before magistrate Pauline Newa got married in 2000 and have five children.

Doreen told the court she loved Zulu and would want to be reconciled although he did not support the family and had problems when having sex.

“He likes leaving me for months and he does not give me money, sometimes he brings at times he doesn’t. The major problem I brought him here for is lack of sex. He does not have strength,” said Doreen

In defence Zulu told the court that they had sex before they came to court so he was surprised that his wife was complaining of lack of sex in their home.

“We have always lived well. Our problems only started when I stopped work, we were even chased from our house. I am shocked she is saying I don’t do anything in the bedroom.

“I only left the house once when I was transferred to work from Kafue because where my employer was building another lodge and they wanted me to oversee the project. I was chased because I refused to stay that side otherwise I have never slept out,” said Zulu

The court observed that there was lack of communication in their marriage and advised them to sit down and try to resolve their misunderstandings.

“There is lack of communication, you need to sit down and let your wife know where you are going, support is also very important show your wife how much you are getting and make a budget together because financial problems have ended many marriages,” said Magistrate Newa

She said Doreen left her home to follow Zulu because of sex which be encouraged in the house.

Magistrate Newa advised the couple to start advising each other and resolve issues amicably and reconciled them.
