The man who took to an online relationship counseling platform revealed that his wife had been a housewife and they had all been living together happily.
However, she began badgering him with the request of going back to further her studies.
The man stated that he had conceded but had given her the sole condition that she’d not earn more than him.
He further said that his wife completed her education, got a job and was promoted twice, and began earning twice his salary.
The narrator reveals that he feels it debasing and disrespectful and has requested her to quit.
See his full narration below:
“Hi Auntie Momoza. Please hide me. My wife was a housewife and we were very happy in this house. She told me she was bored and wanted to further her studies. I told her I was willing to pay for her studies on condition that she won’t find a work that pays her more than me. We agreed and she did her diploma. She found a job afterwards and I was okay with it because I was earning more than her. She joined another company and within 2 years she got promoted twice. Now she earns double my salary. I told her to quit and she’s refusing. You see, as head of the family, it’s a taboo for a woman to earn more than me. It is very disrespectful. I feel betrayed because I invested in her education because she agreed to my conditions. Am I being unreasonable for expecting my wife to be a wife? There’s no way she’ll respect me when she earns double my salary. She must either quit or look for a junior position.”
