Ladies, would agree to be the one footing the bills and waking up to go to work to fend for your husband and kids? And how long can you maintain a jobless man before you kick him to the curb?
This was the question Maina Kageni posed to listeners after a Kenyan lady revealed that her man has not had a job for 20 years and that she’s been footing all the bills, educating the kids and paying for insurance.
The conversation arose after women came out to defend themselves after men attacked and accused them of being ‘gold diggers’ and money lovers.
According to men, women make money and wealth a priority when it comes to relationships, and that when a man is broke, women don’t want anything to do with him, or when he runs out of money, she walks away from him.
It was at this point that women decided to reveal that they also do support men who are jobless, refuting the claims that money comes first in a relationship and making it clear that it’s their duty to support their families.
One particular caller came out to confess that her husband doesn’t work nor does he even try to get a job, or support her in any way. She went on to add that she leaves him sleeping as she wakes up to go and toil.
“As we are talking, niko job and he is in the house, sleeping,” said the devastated woman, who revealed that he’s been jobless for the last 7 years and that he’s never given her even a coin.
