“What are you hiding? How come she doesn’t know your password? Either you are hiding a woman or money deals or misusing your money. Marriage requires full disclosure,” he wrote in a Facebook post.

“So many women are insecure in their marriages because of secrecies around the man's phone. Your wife must know every deal you transact. Why are you working so hard if not for your family?
“Your money as a man is not your money, it is family money. God blesses you to support your family. It's your honour to hand over your salary to your wife, said Dr Mukala.

He also added that women are far better than men at planning family finances. He said most women, although not all, account for every penny.

Mukala disclosed that his wife does spend R10 without his approval. This includes her salary and the principle works both ways.

South Africans shared their thoughts on the doctor’s relationship advice:

Pearl Dupontè replied:

“It takes real men to account for such behaviour.”

Fiona Griffith wrote:

“Two cannot walk unless they agree. If you feel so strongly about this and you both cannot come to a middle ground if any, you have all right to do what's best for each his own, everyone will govern their relationships differently...As long as it works for you and God is pleased keep on keeping on.”

Itumeleng Tobosi responded:

“My partner has limited access to my phone. Some conversations are not meant for her as I have people in my circle confiding in me. Those conversations have got nothing to do with our relationship nor do they have any impact on it. She doesn't have any right over it and vice versa. Let us not treat a relationship like a contractual obligation.”

Briefly News also shared a poll on Facebook about giving your partner access to your cellphone and the responses were eye-opening. Check it all out below:

Untrusting man sparks debate, claims a domestic is never to enter your bedroom or serve your man food

In another story, Briefly News reported that an old-school Mzansi man reminded ladies to never let their helpers enter their bedroom or serve their man food because they are playing with fire if they do. This sparked a huge debate on social media.

Twitter user @Moss98517503 reminded ladies of some old advice which made clear that no helper will enter your and your husband's sacred space (bedroom) nor will she perform any wifely duties (cook for him). It is believed that this is how a nanny becomes a wife.
