No divorce for sex-starved African man, 80

BINDURA, Zimbabwe, March 17 (UPI) -- A court in Zimbabwe threw out an 80-year-old man's divorce petition after his wife rejected his complaint that they had not had sex in seven years.

The woman, who is in her 50s, told the court they had done it twice recently and she would be happy to provide the gory details to prove it.


"If you want I can describe him (graphically)," she told the magistrate in the northern town of Bindura.

The New Zimbabwean said Tuesday that Magistrate Miriam Banda took the woman's word for it and rejected the divorce application filed by Obert Manjengwa. Manjengwa had sought to dissolve the marriage because he hadn't had relations with his wife for seven years and was getting too old to waste time trying to convince her to accommodate him.
