Me, My husband & His mother

Philip and I love each other so much that he stood by me despite all his mother did or said to frustrate me to leave him. We visited different specialists and they all certified us medically alright. I have visited churches, held vigils and even fasted for days, drank various concoctions of varied colors and combinations all in the name of getting pregnant so that my mother-in-law can stop humiliating me yet I couldn’t get pregnant. … More Me, My husband & His mother

Is a wife entirely at her husband’s mercy?

Depending on how we were raised and the circumstances surrounding our upbringing, we all turn out differently regardless of what society expects of us. This is why one wife can believe totally to depend on her husband for every need, every expense and hold on to his every word and another believes she is an active participant in the home, having equal say in every matter. While these different practices it might work well for an understanding and deserving husband, in a miss-matched case, it could be recipe for disaster. An example is the scenario where a husband wants his wife to be challenging, not all the time yielding. This causes him to disrespect his wife even more and be less attracted to her by the day. Yet she is instilling the same morals into her daughter which he finds even more irritable. While on the other hand, you’ll find husbands who want this scenario in their homes but their wives have so much voice they can’t be shut out.

About yesterday

I stand against domestic violence, especially towards helpless women. No matter the situation, no matter how aggravated the situation, no matter the ego, no matter the temptation, abusing your wife doesn’t make a man any better than he is. In truth, when you look back at the situation, it just makes you full of regret and shame, almost like you didn’t recognize the monster you became. It’s better to remove yourself from all appearances of domestic violence than fall prey and this goes for both men and women and in this case, women are more like to fall victim.

Stay safe! … More About yesterday

What are we teaching our sons?

It’s more convenient to pass buck when it comes to taking responsibility but consequences always remain unto whom it will affect. There is a lot of craze about teaching our daughters basically to be the perfect wives. Our African mothers put a lot of pressure on daughters only because they feel girls need a stamp of approval to be accepted in the society. The empowerment for the girl child is another topic on its own but for now, it has become imperative to draw our consciousness to the boy child.

A woman is as perfect as her image and by what she is able to bring to the table regardless of any other circumstances surrounding her.
