A married man has become furious because his wife violated their agreement by earning more than him at the end of the month.
The man who sought advice on social media claimed that his wife had been a stay-at-home wife and that they had all been cohabitating peacefully but a few months later she started complaining about how she wants to further her education.
He said he agreed to allow her go back to school under the condition that she will not earn more than him if she secures a job.
He added that his wife had finished college, found employment, had two promotions, and was now making twice as much money as him.
The man says he finds it rude and disrespectful hence he ordered her to quit the job.
See his full narration below:
“Hi Auntie Momoza. Please hide me. My wife was a housewife and we were very happy in this house. She told me she was bored and wanted to further her studies. I told her I was willing to pay for her studies on condition that she won’t find a work that pays her more than me. We agreed and she did her diploma. She found a job afterwards and I was okay with it because I was earning more than her.
She joined another company and within 2 years she got promoted twice. Now she earns double my salary. I told her to quit and she’s refusing. You see, as head of the family, it’s a taboo for a woman to earn more than me. It is very disrespectful. I feel betrayed because I invested in her education because she agreed to my conditions.
Am I being unreasonable for expecting my wife to be a wife? There’s no way she’ll respect me when she earns double my salary. She must either quit or look for a junior position.”
