A woman residing in the Mjengo area of Nyeri County sought a divorce from her recently married husband, citing the reason as the disproportionate size of his genitals, as per local reports.
The mother of three, hailing from Nyeri County, applied for the dissolution of her marriage just a week after the ceremony, which was legally recognized under Kenyan law.
The woman, who had entered into this marriage following the breakdown of her previous one, revealed that, in adherence to local customs, she initially moved into her husband’s parents’ house before settling into their marital home. However, it was only when they consummated their marriage that she experienced distress.
Expressing her dissatisfaction in court, she stated, “It’s strange; I can no longer find pleasure with him. His genitalia is unbearable; it’s too large for me. I can’t continue with this.” The court granted the divorce, acknowledging the woman’s plea.
Following their first intimate encounter, she confided in her mother, who advised her to endure and provided medication, assuring her that with time, she would adjust. Despite attempting to address the issue with medication, the woman claimed that subsequent attempts at intimacy were excessively painful.
The husband did not dispute the allegations and expressed willingness to dissolve the union, provided that the dowry and expenses incurred during the courtship were reimbursed promptly and in full.
