A Nigerian man has stirred mixed reactions on social media after he kicked against the ideology that a woman must be totally submissive to her husband.
Taking to Twitter, the man identified as @ajeromorgan, said that if his wife does everything he tells her to do, then she is his child and not his wife.
According to him, a wife should not be controlled by her husband, adding that marriage is a union of two adults with different ideas and opinions.
He further asserted that a control freak cannot build a successful marriage.
“IF MY WIFE does everything I tell her to do, then she’s my child and not my wife. That would be “parenting,” not “partnering.” Marriage is a union of two adults with different ideas and opinions. Knowing this has helped my attitude. A control freak cannot build a great marriage”.
His tweet drew a range of responses. While some of his followers agreed with him, others pointed out that his ideology is baseless.
@naija_rich_kids wrote, “A lot of men don’t understand leadership. Imagine arguing about the fact that your wife is not your child and an adult that you don’t need to control in order to be a leader”.
@levites_1, “I also support this thought. That is how it should be”.
