Is it Wrong to Call Your Friend's Wife by her first name? by WackyJ1(m): 9:20pm On Feb 10, 2023
Is it a crime to call the Wife of your friend by her first name?

I've known this guy since 2018. He met his wife in 2020.

They've done traditional wedding.

I once followed this guy to law faculty of our school during our Masters program and spent 6 hours typing the project of his then ex.

The same ex ended up blaming him for her misfortune.

I'm the best man for his white wedding tomorrow.

Yet, he's warning me for calling his wife her first name in the same sentence where I also referred to my girlfriend by her own first name.

He claims I was wrong and he has refused to apologise.

I need this one the front page.

Was I wrong?

Yes, you're wrong. It's totally out of place. He has corrected you so see to it that you make adjustments.

And I think you also have an ego problem. Because if not, what the Bleep is I've known this guy since 2018. He met his wife in 2020 .

it is disrespectful

I see.

You're one of those.

Like I asked him.

Is it "My Wife" that will appear on the Marriage certificate, the school certificate, the court documents?

I did not call the girl's name in a disrespectful way.

Only a much older friend can tell me such not my age mate.

The reality here is your so called guy has zero respect for you. Any friend who sends me such WhatsApp message forcing me to call his wife whatever name...I'll just block him and delete his number. If strangers call her by her first name, why should I who's a close friend be criticized for doing the same thing,

A friend of mine married his girlfriend last December. Her name is joy, till date whenever I call him or he calls, I'll ask him how's joy, and he'll say fine...what other name does he expect me to call her?

Abeg the problem in Nigeria is enough for me, I don't need anyone adding to it.

I don’t think you did anything wrong but Nigerians have a lot of weird hang ups about social positions so I’m not that surprised by his response to you.

Speak to him about it I guess

Chaii!!! Mchtweeeee
If I be U, after the best man thing, Na to find my levels man... I wouldn't want to be insulted for nothing in future... embarassed

I will just distance myself from him totally.. If we were 100%, we will now be 21%... If he ask, I will just say sorry bro, I don't want to encroach, u are now a married man....

I don't know what I will do or say in your home, and it will look like I am 'disrespecting' you or your wife.. u have warned me not to call her her God given name.. so it's better this way.. Trash it there and then too without mincing words so that he will understand that you are no longer the guy that typed a project for his girlfriend free for 8MONTHS grin

Start rebranding yourself...Except if there are some edge he has over you.. contract edge, helping to put food on your table edge, etc if none, I just can't tell where and how u got that 'outback' guy as a friend shocked

I was not paid.

The guy is even owing me money.

More than ₦50,000 and I never bothered to ask for it.

It was ₦3,000 bill that his wife put on my Babe's head that made him warn me like that.

I even collected more insult yesterday.

I left this morning.

Western World has their Culture and We have our Culture..... Our Culture is Respect Based Culture ....

If We have Respect for Ourselves as a Nation, Continents and Globe, The world would have been a Better place !

The Corrections seems Harsh .... Personally, I use Respect for Wife of a Friend while I can Disrespect My Friend as I Like !

This one said I cannot address the woman by her name at all.

So because a man marries you, no one can address you by your first name again?

The man paying money to marry you erases your identity?

The woman changes her surname, yes, but the first name does not change.

I was addressing her by her surname before he did traditional marriage for her.

Now I cannot address her by her name again?
