we are in the age where everyone wants to be heard and everyone wants to be noticed and liked

and this has resorted to so many new trends and culture that back in the days didn't exist.

Now a woman wants equal right as a man and will say "what a man can do a woman can do better"

I'm not against this movement or trend or whatever it is called

but if a wife also struggles for equal rights in terms of leadership with her husband

then who is the follower, who gives the instructions, who is the one to submit

two captains can't lead a ship but it seems in this days of social media everyone wants to take the lead.

so who is really the head of the house?

Marriage in Nigeria doesn't give room for equals rights for now.

Permit me to answer you this way.

If you are married, is your wife the chief of your house?

And if you're unmarried, is your mother the chief of your house?

Honestly , I can never understand why Africa make a house of 3 people so important that we would have to be discussing who is the chief of a one room apartment of 3 people .
Marriage is a union between two people , and u religious lot who like to believe two becomes one , if truly two would become one then what part of that one is the chief and subject ??

The husband. Simple.

And this sentiment is supported in developed societies around the world. Men are expected to take responsibility in the home. Even when there is a problem, the man is expected to leave the house and fend for himself and still cover the bills.

As much as equality is clamoured for, the benefits of having the man in a position of responsibility will preserve the status quo.

A husband is like king in his kingdom. If he uses wisdom and soft hand in ruling, he enjoys full support of his subjects. But if he is tyrannical and irrational, his kingdom will not endure and will be made too hot for him by his resentful subjects.
Yaradua was a good king, while buuharii is a good example of a very bad king whose subjects never wish well, except few people who benefit from his foolish and callous reign and some evil youths paid peanuts to defend his ever terrible and unspeakable misadventures.





Good observation,
Straightly let me say....

Equality is nothing but cheating without EQUITY...

MOST feminist like me do mostly misplace priority.

I do tell my female audience, the MAN is the MAN and that makes him the HEAD.

while the woman, I repeat the woman remains his help meet...

Know this...

The man is the head whereas the woman be the NECK

analyze this, can the head rotate or function outside the neck?


Think about it

There is a word that states that who pays the pipers dictate the tone !!! The Man or the Women, however the Man should be the head of the Family by providing for and protecting the Family.

A Man who is concerned about the welfare of his family and provides is definitely the head of the family.

If she wan follow drag or show traits of modern feminism (Misandry), kick that bitch to the curb and send her to her fathers house where she can lead praise and worship since she wants to be foolish.

In reality it is both o. They are helpmates. However,the biggest power in the family is the soft power and trust me it's firmly in the hands of a virtuous wife.
A man or woman who thinks s/he holds the power may realise too late.visit www.freestuffsng.com for latest freestuffs in Nigeria. May God bless our homes.

I come as a christian


But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God. 1 Corinthians 11:3

1 Timothy 3:5 - (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?


1 Timothy 3:12 - Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.

Ephesians 5:23 - For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

Colossians 3:18 - Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.





1 Timothy 2:12 - But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
