Nigerian comedian and dramatist, Ayobami Ayo-Ajewole popularly known as Woli Agba, said the reason why men cheat on their wives is because of familiarity. The comedian said this while speaking on the topic – Does having a job breed pride in a woman. He was a guest on a Nigerian popular TV show; Your View on TVC channel.
Woli Agba said men get used to their wives because they see them everyday as a result they get som familiar with their wives that they lose sight of their values.
“Familiarity bores men sometimes. The fact that you are seeing her everyday and you are already used to her, is what makes men ‘look outside’,” said the comedian.
WOli Agba advised that a man can revive his love for his wife by reflecting back to their dating days when he fought to win her love.
“But when you remember how you were chasing your wife before she finally said yes, you place more value on her,” he advised.
Responding to the issue of men stopping their wives from working out of fear of their overbearing success and pride, Woli Agba said decisions between couples should be based on what work for each couple.
“Whatever happens between a couple should be based on their personal choices. If the man decides to place his wife on salary and she agrees, so be it.
However, the comedian advised women to be sensitive not to hurt their husbands’ego by making them feeling inferior.
“As a wife, your husband should be your secret place. Don’t make him feel inferior.”
He explained further; “civilization has done a lot of injuries to our culture. If a woman is earning more than her husband for example, she could give the children’s fees to her husband in secret so he can pay. That’s a way to not make him feel inferior.”
