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 he expects him to call her aunty or anything of that nature. I think he expected him to say something along the lines of "Your wife sent material...".

It's not an unreasonable request but it seems like they've got some deep-seated issues they haven't resolved yet judging from the way he called him "Oga" 😂

Wow was it that easy and simple? I am happy for you. 1,000 naira is not a big deal so long as you recovered more than that.

So, is this friendship over for good or is there hope for a reconciliation? Well done for requesting your money and getting it back, the fact that he gave it back without drama indicates he is not a terrible person either.



And I love yours too wink.
And that's how you finally found Love😂😂😂😂

Ask the guy out please

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?

You are fukkn wrong and deserve 10 lashes of koboko for bringing this issue here.

Children of nowadays sha!!!!

How the hell you call someone else's wife by her name?! The only people that can do that are their parents,not you.

If you wanna call her ,call by her hubby's own name and you must add Mrs to it,like Mrs lagbaja or Mrs Ajanaku.

You are the one to apologize

Personally I wouldn’t call my friend’s wife by her name, it’s just the normal Naija concept. I would rather call her madam, or oga wife, in my dialect “Nwunye oga” in proudly Igbo and we don’t call our friends wives by their names. We just accord them some respect not withstanding the age difference. If she done born u can call her mama Peter or whatsoever name their child bears. Na so we see am for my region ooo

It's so wrong to refer to a married woman by her name even if you're older than she is. She now bears her husband's name and that alone is an honor/crown on her head

Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the front page. Venting could help with emotional and mental health

But seriously, what's the REAL issue here?

Have you considered that MAYBE you could be over-reacting?

From the WhatsApp screenshot you shared, the tone of your friend seems laid back and cool, no beef observed (at least from where I stand)

Unless there is some unresolved beef between you guys, frankly I don't think there is a need for you to get upset

If your guy wants you to refer to his wife in a certain manner, I think you can - for the sake of your friendship

Thanks again for sharing. Let's keep growing

I don't see anything wrong with that except the wife senior you. You know we're not use to calling people by their first name and this is the problem we have in this part of the world. It's the nursery pupils that are bold to call person by their name, uncle Ikenna, aunty peace. But we the adult call Bros or nna. Maybe call her madam your friend will be okay with that.

I observed that most people call the name of a man’s wife simply because they feel they can’t accrue her that respect. Even if she was your friend before, once a woman is married, you don’t just call her by her name in the presence of her husband. At least you can call her like “ how your madam or your wife”. It’s not that difficult.
