Nigerian men and thier wahala. If a woman doesn't build house she must hear him say "under my roof" "in my house" "I built this with my hard earned money" "you didn't contribute to this"

The woman goes and builds house, some will now say she is an enemy of progress against tradition. If she built it why must the house be in his name? Una never happy. If your wife builds a house it's "our house". But if man builds house its "his" house abi?

Marriage includes both parities. I don't see it as a bad thing. But only a cultured and educated Nigerian man will accept it. If a wife builds a house it's "thier" house. If husband builds a house it's "thier" house. Simple.

House building doesn't take away respect, or submission. That character. Nothing to do with structure.
Na poverty and ego dey worry those men weh no wan better thing for their wife.

Though am not against the right of woman owning houses, it is constitutional and moral.

But as a man, living in the house, own by your wife to me is degrading and very irresponsible. She can own as much houses as she want, but the man needs to always be the man.

No matter how rich a woman is, it still gives her joy when she spends her husbands money, so too should the shelter be.
I can live in a house built by my wife, only when is a temporary accommodation. That's if she built hers before me, but once am done, we are moving into mine.
Her own house goes on rent to place money in her pocket.
The man needs to take his place.

Its a super taboo for me. Dem dey live house weh we men build sef, dem wan use wahala kill person. A man's relative no go get peace for him brother house bcus of wife let alone living in a woman's house

Its not even to be heard of..its a wrong formation to me. Life has made a man higher in brain than a woman. They may be richer though, but there's just this thing about men they'll never seem to understand.

No matter how nice they are, they're still women and their best position is to have a man to look up to especially on shelter issue.
Higher in brain ke? lwkmd
get your head outta your ass and stop being silly.
What's wrong in the woman building a house and staying in it with her husband? Yea there are SOME women who will use that as an excuse to be rude and disrespectful to their husband but the same goes for men. They can also act high and mighty just cos they own the house. Thats why you see useless men throwing their wives out of the house. Tbh I think the best solution is that a couple should buy a house together or build one together so there is equality. simple

I see no taboo dia, it is called foolish pride, in this hard economy you would rather dash landord money instead to enjoy the wealth of your wife just coz of one foolish tradition? My dad lived in the house my mum built for almost 10yr, today you won't believe how many houses he has that can't be compared to my mums... If you don't express humility to imidiate family how can you express humility to the society. The problem is most Nigerian men see their wives as potential competition instead of team mates. He that finds a wife finds a God thing and obtains favour from God. God never mention the kind of resources this wife will come with.

You are so right on point. I am sorry to say, Some men are too egoistic to be married. Some women are too self-centred to be wives. I WILL GLADLY live in a house built by my wife(especially the one i am married to now) because it will obviously be "our" house.

I dey tell you!! Who ever builds house who cares. Both of them go live there and enjoy. Character of husband or wife has nothing to do with structure.

what if your wife to be, owns a big mansion where she lives before she met you. And you happen to live in an average flat.

Would you let her give up her mansion to come live in your flat just because you married her?

My brother thank you! I'm glad people with your mentality still exists in this nairaland.

Ths best option is for both husband and wife to sit together and build a house together if the finances are available. People forget marriage is a partnership, not a dictatorship.

Up you!!! smiley
