Men can equally sacrifice their careers for sake of marriage

12 July 2016, 10:52 Anne Mutinda

This past weekend, a local gospel TV held a discussion on reasons why men are avoiding marriages and existing socio-economic struggles among men topped in the list.

Men were said to be more attractive and lovable to women if their pockets were heavy enough with those without money being considered unmarriageable. Existence of love seemed to be more dependent on availability of financial resources and their quantity.

But there came a question of dilemma; women are becoming more educated and more empowered than men. They are getting into executive positions previously reserved for men only. They are earning more than men.

So, what happens when they live in different locations and want to live together after marriage?

Normally, the society would expect the woman to shelve her career ambitions for the sake of marriage. However, things have changed in the modern society. The argument was that couples should logically deliberate on what risks they expose themselves to by letting one off the career ladder.

Look at each other's paycheck and benefits to be lost and find a way to fill them going forward. Come up with a conscientious sustainable plan to ensure they remain together in peace and harmony going forward.

There were husbands who confessed to giving up their jobs to relocate to the country, city or town of wife's work. And they had no regrets. All they had to advise is prioritising the family vision and choosing to sacrifice for its stability.

But there must be a well thought agreement and respect for each other. Therefore, men can equally sacrifice their careers for the sake of marriage.
