In Africa, it has become a common norm for men to talk about “wife material”. In other word, a woman who can cook, clean, wash his clothes and be the typical African woman.
Now, I dont have an issue with marriage. It was ordained by God and I am also a romantic at heart. It becomes an issue for me when a woman is expected to lose her identity just because she is married.
But women still shoulder the bulk of the housekeeping and childrearing, even when working full-time. A married man is likely to pursue his career as though he were still single, while a married woman is expected to forfeit her public life to follow her husband or care for the young, the old, and the infirm of the family.
Its not uncommon for a man to be seen listing his characteristics for wife material or a woman being told to conform herself to what a man wants
I don’t want that…I do not believe I need to lie, or pretend just because i want to be seen as wife material.
I want a marriage that is a partnership. I want a marriage where we r both equals. i want a marriage where my husband doesn’t feel it makes him less of a man to help around the house. I want a marriage where nobody is afraid to do another person’s job. I can change the light bulbs and he can cook. I want a marriage with someone who will push me to achieve my goal, who doesn’t get threatened at my success.
And you know what, I believe that God always gives us the right person for us. I am not afraid to wait till i find that because I know my worth.
Whats your opinion on marriage as a partnership?
