- An African man recently took it upon himself to create a thread about marriage advice for men
- In the list, the guy mostly encourages other married men to be more considerate of their wives' needs as opposed to their own
- Most men picked up on this and were soon heading to the comment section to share how they did not think it was at all fair
Marriages are no walk in the park and many people who have been married for either a long or short time will most likely agree with that statement. A married man with the handle @DrJoeAbah recently headed to Twitter to help make married life easier by sharing a thread of tips on what makes a happy home.
While the advice (in the eyes of a woman) seemed pretty reasonable, since the man was basically encouraging men to be more helpful around the house and not too friendly around her homegirls, etc, most men did not think it was fair.
Many of them headed to the comment section to protest about some of the tips @DrJoeAbah was offering for a better marriage. Many of them even compared married life to prison life. Read a few of their comments below:
"I was a slave in my mother's house, I won't be a slave in my house. We go 50/50, if that's not enough I will pass."
"That's like living in prison, I can't live a life of pleasing someone every day."
"Nah, I will pass, now I know why most men die young of stroke high blood [pressure] and all those chronic diseases. To put up with all the above and still be happy."
In similar Briefly.co.za news, traditional weddings and their customs can sometimes be confusing. This has been made increasingly clear as a new hashtag was born in South African Twitter streets to clarify whether proposals should come before lobola is paid in traditional wedding arrangements.
#LobolaOrProposalFirst was trending in Mzansi as locals both wondered and shared their thoughts out loud about what should happen first when a couple wants to wed traditionally.
While many were of the opinion that the proposal should come before the lobola is paid, others thought that paying lobola is a way of finalising the proposal without actually proposing to a woman.
