You have no business with marriage if you’re not man enough to pay all bills – UK-based Nigerian woman

A Nigerian nurse working in the United Kingdom has argued against the concept of a man splitting bills with his woman.

She said she believes in the age long tradition of a man being the one to provide as the head of the family.

The lady with Twitter username @proudnursemj, said anybody who is not man enough to take care of a family should not be thinking of getting married.

She, however, added that she believes that the issue of splitting bills is an important discussion that a couple or intending couples must have in the early stages.

According to @proudnursemj most African men do not like the idea of splitting bills, but exposure to a different culture abroad is changing them.

She further said that a wife must be allowed the free will to decided if she wants to support he husband or not and it should not be mandatory.

She wrote; “This splitting bills is a very important discussion!!! It should come earlier in dating… I personally I’m 100% against any woman splitting bills with any man! I don’t care the percentage! It will never make sense to me… Yes it’s reasonable to support the family where necessary!

But splitting bills???? like giving me a percentage to cover is BS! & I’m 100% not doing that! If you’re not MAN enough to take care of a Family you have no business getting married! I’m not a feminist btw… so I believe in “Man is the head of the family”. Be a man! Period.

“Most African never liked the idea of splitting bills with their wife, they found it ridiculous, but small years abroad, they start copying other people’s culture. I’m not saying as a woman don’t support your home/partner…

I’m saying it should be optional not mandatory.. & most reasonable women will always support their partner… I’ve heard women from other culture love African men because they provide and don’t expect them to split bills… that doesn’t mean they don’t support the men.”
