DISSOLUTION OF MARRIAGE OVER HUSBAND’S REFUSAL TO TAKE
ANTI-RETROVIRAL DRUGS WHILE INSISTING ON HAVING SEX WITH
Mrs. C V. Mr. U Pet No. 241/19
The couple had their marriage at the AMAC registry on November 10, 2012. They
have a 7-year-old daughter. Mr. U was HIV positive before he married Mrs. C but
did not disclose his status to her. After a while Mr. U stopped taking his Anti-
Retroviral drugs and started forcefully having sexual intercourse with Mrs. C
without protection, thereby endangering her life. Mr. U would constantly
threaten her life, subject her to cruelty, seize the car she had bought for herself,
and was cruel in his conduct to her. Upon these, we approached court on behalf
of Mrs. C for a dissolution of the marriage and same was granted.
With the development, Mrs. C was completely taken out of the bondage.
