‘My husband became a bully and was never satisfied’, was how one woman began her conversation with Maina Kageni, after disclosing how she used to give her unemployed husband her salary, to make him feel like a man.
‘He told me I look like I can be ‘pakwad uji’ ( I look like I can be misused and not independent)’, she confessed.
‘If he would ask me for 50k, I would go and drain my account and give him and then to him submission was me dressing in a certain way, not painting my nails, dressing in a certain way, so I really changed who I was. After two years I was lost, depressed, because on the other hand there was no love from him’.
Girls how far would you go to make your man feel like the head of the home? Ladies what are some of these things you do for your man, that seems crazy.
Does a working woman have to give her salary to her husband? And should he be allowed to determine how to spend it solely?
This was the question Maina Kageni posed to listeners, after a woman disclosed she hands over her salary to her jobless man, who in turn decides how much pocket money she should have.
Girls, have you been in this situation, where a man takes your salary decides how much busfare you should use, and how much you should spend on your weave, perhaps he even doesn’t want you to do a manicure?
