The Title Called ‘Husband’!

by Mo Aremu

I wonder sometimes if it is really worth it to toil all your life and then have other people feast on the proceeds.
As a man I grew up believing that it is the man’s duty to provide for the family, and YES I have been doing that. I love my wife and children so much it hurts me when I think some day I might no longer be around to protect them.
I have a close friend who I no longer speak with only because I told him to take things easy and let his wife also work.I told him if he drops dead his wealth will disappear because his wife might not even know the first thing to do with money except to spend it. You see he struggles day and night and we can both beat our chests that we are big boys but this guy’s wife is freaking lazy, she can not even carry her purse herself.
We went for a wedding the other day and I saw the assistant (yes she has an assistant and she is a housewife o) carrying her bag for her.My wife pinched me and we both tried hard not to burst into laughter. I will give it to her, she is beautiful and very fit but she can not even have a serious conversation because she is so  ignorant it annoys you. My friend told me he can no longer be friends with me because I do not regard his wife and that she is the mother of his children and he will go to the ends of the earth to give them everything they want.
I really agree but what I do not support is the fact that my friend can not even go on vacation because he always thinks about every Naira he earns, one day off for him is losing money. He says he prefers his wife and children to go on vacation and have whatever they want. Even God rested after creating everything.
Please tell me as a men do we not deserve to rest? Is it wrong for our wives to give us money and not even blink?
Why is it that when a woman gives her husband money, it is always a topic in her circle, no man ever says a word when his wife cooks his favorite meal, sex him from morning till night only to collect #2 million naira for down payment on her dream car.
Tell me is it a crime to take a break and tell my wife to handle the bills for just one month out of the 40 years + that we will be together?

From a very worried husband, father and son.

I want my husband to be financially responsible for the welfare of the home.He is the head,that’s is function.I would definitely work because I have parents who am going to be responsiblle for because they’ve been for me and I also have aspirations.But I wouldn’t like to perform the function of my husband.if he needs assistance,I wld help.but not sharing of duties.wld he help me cook or do other house chores? Women are striving to be like men,that’s over ambitiousness.I would work,but my husband needs to be totally capable in earnings shld jst be an addition.God help us all

The word of God says the man should provide for the home, and the woman should be submissive. A man that cannot provide for his home is worst than an infidel.
