"I have been out of the University for ten years without a job. Getting a job became a big deal in those years. Every advertisement I saw on the papers demanded for five years working experience.



How could l have had five years working experience without actually working? So l continued the search until l found a job as a clerical staff in an establishment of sort.

I took it even though the pay could not take me home. They say ‘a beggar doesn’t have a choice’. I couldn’t say no to the salary when I didn’t have a better deal elsewhere.



I have worked for six years and just got my promotion to the position of a supervisor in the same company.

Meanwhile, I have continued to see my sweetheart, Jessica from the University. She finished service and got a good job in a Bank and as it is she is already earning more than I have ever earned… The though of marriage makes me uncomfortable as I want to play my role as 'the man' in our household..."

So is it still a big deal in this day and age?
Does it matter if a woman has a more financially rewarding career than the man she chooses to marry?

It depends on the woman in question..... a bad woman will always be bad even if she is not earning a dime. Dude, you should know your girl better having been with her right from school.

Abegi! She may earn the whole world but she's still a woman. I, personally, have no problem with that.

It depends on understanding , first of all you need to take away the inferiority complex attitude you have, you guys one, what belongs to her belongs to you, she can sponsor the marriage if she likes, true love covers every set backs.and also increase your faith in God nd be prayerful

I can marry a guy that  I earn more than as far as there is true love. If I notice he was only after my money, NO way. My guy will not even know how much am worth or even my salary until after marriage.

Bros u have to think twiceo. Once a woman always like that. You know more than 80% of women that earn more than their husbands are not submissive. Note that by the time you would want to stamp ur authority over her she will try to resist it because she is capable of taking care of herself. So please study your woman deeply and allow God to take control before you will venture into marriage. God bless u.
