3 things good men don't do

29 March 2016, 18:06 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - There are things good men never do. Ever.

Ask your wife to wake up and cook because you were out until late at night

The issue has never been submissiveness from women but the type of things modern day husbands do.  A man goes out to the club, bar, or wherever with his mates, a reasonable wife does not follow up to check because she is also doing her own things and he is not a toddler. After he is done whiling away the time, let’s say he gets in from 12 and he does not live close by neither is he from work; the man comes wake you up for food.  You see how an agreeable wife can become a bore? You are waking me up from my sleep, from entertainment I was never involved in and you want me to be agreeable?

If you come back from your little shenanigans, just put yourself to sleep and don’t involve me. That is what wives are saying. Don’t create a ruckus neither just go to sleep and pretend we all had supper at the same time and went to bed at the same time like she does

Keep using your mother as a barrier

As a man, I will tell you this, if you cannot move from your mother’s breast and know that you wife is now a priority, your marriage is already doomed. In every way! Not that you abandon your mother, taking care of her has never been an issue but when you keep bringing her up and putting her before your wife, then you were never ready for marriage. You should have continued living at home. Your children- mother! Your home-mother! Your finances- mother! Your wife has a right to be mad because she did not marry a triangle but you and you keep making it hard for her. If she develops a dislike for your mother, you have yourself to blame because it is something developed and not pre-empted. Those boundaries where your mother knows you now have your own home to build and she does not have to keep interfering are important.

Treat her like a commodity

You married her, not buy her. If that is so hard for you then you don’t need a wife. Women are running away from marriage because of the attitudes displayed like Kenyan men. You want to be judge and jury to everything she does. You want to put her under a microscope. You want to tell her what to do and when or with who. Just because she keeps quite does not mean you are winning. When a woman is defeated, that is when you should be worried because she is planning an escape from you. Marriage is a partnership and even if she is a housewife, there is some code of respect unless you married your maid and don’t think she deserves it.
