Nigerian Men Talk About Paying Their Girlfriends Allowances by BigCabal: 2:42pm On Jun 01, 2021
I’ve often heard of men who gave regular allowances to their girlfriends but had never met one (that I knew of). A friend prompted me to talk to men who “paid salaries” to their partners so I put a call out. I got some pretty interesting responses from six men. Here’s what they said.

Patrick
She’s looking for a job so I decided to give her something monthly for her upkeep till she starts working again. It’s about 7% of my income although I couldn’t send her the full amount last month because of some financial commitments I had and she understood. I try not to let it affect the dynamics of our relationship. When I first started giving her, she felt she had to be submissive to me and agree with everything I say. I had to make her understand that I didn’t want that.

Sucre
I provide bi-weekly support for my girlfriend. I did it because she’s a student and it’s hard for me to watch her struggle with mundane expenses. I want her to be able to focus on her studies so she can graduate in flying colours. It’s never about the money, it’s about the void it fills for her. I’m comfortable and she should be comfortable too. I’m hoping we’ll be married next year.

Jack
I used to give my ex $50 weekly, which was 10% of my income. She’s unable to get a job and I work 3 jobs. We lived together and I paid for the groceries and other expenses as well. I suggested the allowance but she wasn’t comfortable with it. She even beat it down to that amount because she didn’t want to be a burden.

I can’t be comfortable knowing I can help and decide not to. I didn’t tell people because I didn’t want them to think she was taking advantage of me like my best friend did when I told her. It’s important to me that my partners have their allowance, so they don’t have to rely on me. Money is always made back. Imagine a situation where she needs money but we’re fighting and can’t ask for money.

Seyi
I started paying my ex an allowance to help her financially and also seem to portray myself as responsible because she thought I was making a lot of money. When I was in love, it made sense. Eventually, she started feeling entitled and we’d get into huge arguments when it wasn’t constant. She also wanted to determine and control how much I spent and saved from my salary. She also started being entitled too.

Williams
I’ve been with my woman since 2017 but only started sending her monthly allowance in 2019. I already see her as my wife so it’s no big deal. She takes care of me and goes out of her way to do stuff for me so she definitely deserves it. I give her a minimum of 100k on the same day every month but more if I know there’s something she wants to buy, like a gadget.

If you're too broke to give your girl some dough, they're millions of other niggars waiting for some girl to come an take their money. That's life.

I can't give my gf monthly allowance rather empower her. Doing this will make her proud of herself and self reliance/independent. I want an independent woman. Well, i can patch I'm some months if there aren't sales from her end. But I will surely always pay for her hair.

Exactly what I've been ruminating on. I want to place her on monthly allowance - to do whatever she deems fit with it. But I'm afraid I may still have to foot some regular bills of hers.

I am yet to come to terms with the mentality that makes it hard or taboo for one to voluntarily and cheerfully spend (not pay to keep them, though) their resources on their intimate partner or anyone close to them. Anyway, it's either that people do pretentiously keep enemies and frenemies as intimate partners, which is nonsense, thus the reason why they find it hard to cheerfully spend on them, or they personify enemies and frenemies themselves.
