In other news, a Nigerian man, identified simply as Neo, has stated that a woman must cook for her husband no matter the time, even if it’s midnight.
Neo stated this in response to a Twitter user who asked if it’s appropriate for a man to demand pounded yam and egusi soup after returning home at 1am.
According to Neo, it’s acceptable because marriage is commitment and couples are entitled to make demands that will discomfort each other.
Citing an example, the man asserted that men readily come to their wives’ rescue when their car breaks down on the road regardless of the location and time, so women shouldn’t make excuses not to cook for their husbands.
“She MUST cook it for him. If the same wife can have her car break down anywhere, she abandons the car there then calls her husband to come pick it up and fix it, and he does exactly that, the man is also entitled to make demands that will discomfort her. Marriage is COMMITMENT,” he wrote.
“You cannot attach conditions when I want my owns needs met. I don’t care if your car breaks down in the middle of the night in the middle of nowhere, once you call me, I am rushing to your aid. I don’t care what you are feeling or doing, if I need food by 1am, you are cooking it.”
