“It’s a taboo for her to earn more than me” – Man asks wife to quit her job



A supposed husband has lamented on social media after his woman began earning more than him, breaching an agreement between them.

The man has sought advice from Netizens after he shared his supposed dilemma in his marriage on an online relationship counseling platform.

The man revealed his wife had been a housewife and they had all been living together happily, however, it began messy for him after the wife breached their agreement that she would never earn more than him.

Before that, the man noted that he had agreed to fund her studies on the sole condition that she’d not earn more than him.

However, after his wife completed her education, she got a job and was promoted twice within two years, and began earning twice his salary.

Read his story 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.”
