Addiction to prayer has seen a man complain about not getting enough ‘bedroom time’ from his wife.
Brighton Moyo opened up at the civil court saying his wife Rufaro Madzivanzira had no time to be intimate and have children as she always goes for prayers and comes back late.
Moyo was applying for custody of the children when he dragged Madzivanzira to court seeking legal right to take all the children from her.
He said Madzivanzira had no time for not only their children but for him in the bedroom also in the days when they were married.
He added that his former wife would leave early in the morning for prayers coming back very late making their children starve since there was noone to cook for them.
“Rufaro had no time for our children, not even for me in bed; she made me starve.
“She would leave early in the morning and come back late from her prayers making our kids spend the whole day without food,” he said.
Madzivanzira agreed to the allegation that she spent whole days at church but disputed the fact that she let her children go without food.
She also mentioned that she had her own reasons she cannot disclose to the public why she denied her husband his conjugal rights.
“I cannot be that much heartless to my children I’m a mother, yes I went for prayers but I would leave them with food to sustain them for the time I will be away.
“As for s-e-x issues my husband is talking about, I have my reasons I cannot tell before the court as I also believe that every house has its own issues,” she said.
She added that she cannot give Moyo their female children pointing a number of reasons why he cannot take care of female children.
The presiding Magistrate Muridzo ordered the couple to bring their children to court on Friday so that they could decide on their own which parent they are comfortable to stay with. H Metro
