What Exactly Is A Man's Duty In The Home Nowadays by busolayemi: 8:55pm On Feb 05, 2013
sometime last week, I got into a discussion with a male friend of mine and the subject of discussion was that gone are the days when women sit at home to cater for children....These days, its a collective effort...now, that got me thinking if the financial responsibility at the home front is now shared...what happens to the domestic responsibilities....cos I know men who still insist their wife do their laundry and sum chores all in the name of being the man of the house...

U're nt evn married yet and u're already lookin for ways to share house chores. i got an idea: why not jes draw up a rota? U might include d name of dt ur fiance's husband who stopped callin u 'aunty bisola'!!!
It might b a nice way to retaliate.
It's obvious, u're gonna make a very bad wife!!!

I take it you were both going to work BEFORE living in the same house.
How were you keeping things together before then? Do it the same way, only this time, y'all have an extra pair of hands... Each other.

You both work. If you are tired when you get back, he/she also is. No one is superman/superwoman. You are both flesh and bone, so do onto him/her as you would have him/her do onto you.

A man provides for the home, while the woman takes care of the home. No matter how much a woman earns, she can never be the one to pay the children's school fees right from day 1 in nursery school till her last day in the university. OP, na ur mama train u, where ur papa still de the house?

Like KINGwax said, u sound like u are going to be a bad wife, even tho u're not yet married

This is Nigerian thinking. You better hope you STAY in Nigerian then and not leave.
That is why Nigerian homes breakup here, unless you don't want her to work. But if she has to work, do ALL that, and sex you on top in this part of the world....You suppose pity am naw.

Shebi it was the babes that were clamouring for gender equality...You don see responsibility now you wan run.

Men are like lions while the women are the lionesses. Remember its the lioness that hunts, feeds the cubs, etc.

Lions are just there grooving...

He works, I works.
He pays, I pay ( house, food, bills. )
I buy my own beauty-things with my own money, he buys whatever he needs with his money.
I clean, he clean.
I cook, he cook.
I get up with the kid in the night, so does he. ( After breastfeeding stopped.. )

And for me, that is how I want it. I do not wish to go to my husband and ask for money for clothes, shoes, or a coffee for that matter. And I do not wish to put the whole responsibility for bills on him either.

gone r dose days wen I av tym for responses on nairaland...buh u c madea, forget bou women emancipation...I tink its only normal a man helps his wife...its not jst bou gender equality buh mayb ma background...I av such a lovin dad who wudnt allow ma mum ovastress hersef...dats minus d fact dat a bigger chunk of d financial stress is on him. For instance, he doesn't allow ma mum wake up at nyt to care for d baby as long has d baby's weaned...most nyt, I wake up nd see him in d livin room, carryin d baby on his chest or his neck...jst to lessen d stress for mummy...nd I can't rememba eva seein dem argue talkless fight...so u c, if u feel am talkin cos of waeva ur reasons, den u nid to get to sum homes...I dnt tink it remove anytin frm a man to help his wife out...yes, d wife shdnt take advantage of dat buh at d same tym...men shd learn to help more....wat do u say of men dat can't even cook...if their wife isn't dere, dey turn to mama bash n eateries...I dnt get african men...so complicated...God bless ma hubby thoe...he's a blessin to me*kissesdearie*

Who talks like what? Saying things straight out...?

If you think I do not appriciate it, you are very wrong. Still, that way of writing how WE do it in our house, is more easy than: I am so blessed to have a husband who understand how nice it is to be equal around the house, I have a man who cooks and cleans as much as I do, he even takes the baby in the night, smoochie-moochie-overload. See what I mean?wink

And bendazum...If I can wash my husbands dirty clothes, he can wash mine. Neither of us see the problem. How will you do of your wife get terribly sick, and can`t move from the bed, and it`s coming out the mouth and the a*s? Sit down and let everything get nasty, or clean everything, and her...?

If my husband spend our money on a househelp that I never met to come and help me while I was sick instead of taking care of me himself..well, that is not what I consider a nice thing to do. At all.

And that would make me look at him as lazy as well.
