With recent bizarre pertaining men being battered by their spouse, it is true that in future, the society will be fighting for the rights of boy child contrary to what is being experienced at moment with the secular world trying to establish better terms for the girl child.

But I will give the researchers an assignment so that they can come up with statistic showing the percentage of men who have been assaulted by the wives.

With women taking the responsibility of providing necessities in their home, it seems that this has triggered the entire scenario, assuming to be the decision makers thus sidelining their partners. But does this justify their move to snatch manhood from the man?

According to the rules of nature, women have a duty to submit, while their counterparts are entitled to love. But this does not mean to exploit that opportunity from either party.

I’m not interpreting the bible, neither am I interpreting the constitution, but I’m just shedding the light on a matter which many seem to be ignoring.

Women should not seek the same veto vote in the house with their husband as their role is well known since time in memorial.

Respect should be seen so as to enable the coming generation to curve their way in time.

Speaking of rights makes it even more hard. I am not saying that men should be given more rights than women, but as we look for a way to balance the equation, let us not forget the truth that has been there.
