Why Can't Most Men Benefit From Their Wives' Income?

Hello boss,

This weekend has been a sleepy one for me because of a lot of activities from Friday. Well, after missing out on Church service this morning painfully, I logged on to Facebook and a friend of mine, had written this:
GENTLEMEN, If you have N2,000 in the house and your wife has N48,000.The total amount of money in that house is N2,000..Are we together?!!


I commented that that was a 'Very disturbing mindset....but why is it not N50, 000?'



In my mind I actually reason with him because I have seen this play out in a lot of homes at least in Nigeria where most husbands say, they don't bother about knowing how much their wives earn at work or business at all because they will be considered lazy and wanting to spend her money. And wives demand money from their husbands, even when he has to borrow to keep up and are struggling, while they keep back their own earnings.


Is this trend something we should encourage in marriages? 
Many concerns on my mind. I need your opinion.


Then as I was strolling on Twitter @heritagebankltd, I saw this banner asking same question from Heritage Bank Nigeria? 


Is today, for extolling that this as a virtue, or calling out on it as a wrong ethic?

I really do not know. Till I hear from you.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.
