What exactly are we women doing to ourselves?
Why do women focus mainly on the female child thereby poorly raising the male child?
How is it that a woman can boldly tell her son’s fiancee to make the weekend visits to her son a priority and not her job because there are women everywhere and we applaud such woman?
Why do we not demand that a mother teaches her son discipline and faithfulness in marriage?
This is the reason there are many tales of woe in most marriages today.
The men are poorly brought up with this disgusting mentality to cheat with impunity as there obviously will not be any consequences to their irresponsible actions.
I would be weary of marrying a man whose mother has such thinking as her son is a time bomb waiting to explode.
I had cause to work five days away from home for six months.
My father in-law visited us for one month.
Not once did he ever tell me to let go of my job so as not to lose my partner because women are everywhere.
My partner told me his father advised him to make sure he remains faithful and focused towards his family as infidelity leads to destruction.
My partner and I were apart for seven months when we just got married.
Not once did my parents in-law tell me to return home so that I will not lose their son to another woman.
My enlightened parents in-law channelled the advice of faithfulness to their son.
My partner did not cheat while I was away.
How do I know?
I know because I did not marry a badly raised man-child looking for an emergency rehabilitation centre.
I know better to not allow my daughter mingle with a man whose mother has such thinking as her son will be badly raised.
I still do not understand why the society puts the burden of marital success on the woman when marriage is supposed to be a symbiotic relationship between two willing adults.
That is why the lies of “all men cheat” and “It rains everywhere” is popular.
Ladies mingle with well raised men.
All men certainly do not cheat.
I am automatically allergic to poorly raised men and women who enable irresponsible behaviour in men.
You should be too.
