Rant Of The Day – Our Wife

By Grace Shaibu

Welcome to the rant column

I understand that being in a serious relationship is something really serious in this part of the world. This time and age, we know how difficult it is to have a man that is very serious with you, takes you to your family and introduces himself as your man and then to his own family too. I mean, that’s a great man and he is rare but what I don’t like is the fact that some men take leverage on that.


What is the meaning of going to a family function by your husband to -be’s family only for you to get there and then they say,’Oya, come and start cooking this, wash that, arrange this, let us know if you are going to be a good wife and homemaker’. Excuse me, Am I getting married to you? You are in no position to tell me how well I will be and will not be. This culture is annoying, let me decide to help if I want to and if I don’t want to? Leave me alone, I have sense to know what to do.

Young women say this a lot, ‘I went to see his family and I worked ehn?’  My question is, why?

The man will be watching football, or talking to the boys while some Old wives will decide to give his wife to-be some practical exams… Mtsew! That cannot be me anyway. I don’t like attending Functions that won’t bring money to my packet or knowledge to my brain. So, I think Mr right and I will have to discuss that because if my family doesn’t do that to you, then I shouldn’t be subjected to it except I am willing to… Or else? we will take turns

It’s not the way you carry pot that makes you are good wife, It’s the way you lay those hands on the pot{ I hope someone can decipher what I just said }

    Mtsew! They expect so much from the woman and so little from the man. It’s pathetic!

    My sister, that thing is annoying… I am the only girl in my family and all my brothers who have gotten married, My mum made sure she didn’t put them through that nonsense culture and I keep telling myself, If my mum can let her daughter in-laws breathe who is that person that wants to choke?

    Please, let this writer be replying us once in awhile na? and concerning the last statement, It’s not the way you carry pot that makes you are good wife, It’s the way you lay those hands on the pot{ I hope someone can decipher what I just said } I think it means, the heart of the person or the reasons matter than what we see physically.

    No woman should play the role of wife until her bride price has been paid. That’s an unfair treatment
