A husband and wife have settled their differences after accepting to engage in extramarital affairs even though they still remain married.

A couple from Mzilikazi in Bulawayo area of Zimbabwe have struck a deal to allegedly engage in extra-marital s*x in their marriage.
According to H-metro, this was after they both didn’t dispute a string of infidelity accusations they were levelling against each other in court.
Fortunate Matingwina and her husband James Matingwina shocked a Bulawayo magistrate Charity Maphosa sitting at the Bulawayo civil court when they both allegedly confessed to having sidekicks apparently to fulfil their sexual desires.
Explaining how it began, it was gathered that Fortunate had sought a protection order against James, accusing him of sexually abusing her by forcing her to have sexual intercourse while coming from another bout of s*x with his girlfriend. In a typical tit-for-tat situation, James said he was not forcing her to have s*x since he was fully aware that she also had a boyfriend who was taking care of her sexual needs.
“I am married to James under the Marriage Act Chapter 5:11 and he has been violent for the past 11 years. He has a girlfriend in Gwanda and he is in the habit of taking our child with him when visiting her. When he comes back from seeing his girlfriend he forces me to have s*x with him and when I refuse he becomes violent. I no longer love him,” fumed Fortunate.
In his defence, James said he was aware that his wife was refusing to have s*x with him because she had a boyfriend.
“I am not even forcing her to have s*x with me since I know that she has a boyfriend. The protection order she is seeking is just a plot to be free with her boyfriend. When I tried to talk to her so that we stop having s*x outside marriage she refused and she’s still going out with her boyfriend. This all started when her brother hit my son with a steel bar leading to his death and her family is protecting him from being arrested and that is the source of our problems,” said James.
While passing judgement, the magistrate said the parties were in constant misunderstandings over extra-marital affairs that each of them is engaged in. She therefore urged James - who is still bitter about the death of his son who is alleged to have been killed by Fortunate’s brother- not to be violent and abusive towards his wife and allow peace to reign as they now can engage in extramarital affairs without hurting each other.
