Popular Actress, Ronke Oshodi has set the records straight on roles when it comes to being the breadwinner of the family.
Oshodi said you can’t expect her to stay submissive, take care of the
family bills, keep a career and still cook if she is the breadwinner of
The actress made this comments in new interview with Broadway TV, where
she talked about the family setting, her children and career.
She argued that a marriage where the woman is the one paying the utility
bills, providing the school fees of the children, food and other
important things cannot work.
“That is what is trending now and do
you know why it is like that? It is because we are exposed. Everyone
wants to work. Everyone wants to earn money. Thirty or forty years ago,
it was our fathers that were earning money. Ladies don’t really use to
go to universities. They were like if I go to a university, no one would
marry me again.
father used to say that he can never marry a graduate. He used to tell
me he cannot marry a nurse. But now, I would bring 50, the man would
bring 50 or I would bring 70 the man would bring 30 or he would bring
70, I would bring 30 because we have to work hand in hand. So how do you
think we can sustain the marriage. It is not going to work. It is not
because we don’t want to really be in our husband’s house or that we are
not submissive enough, it is not just going to work.
“I am going to pay the NEPA bill, I
would provide foodstuff if you don’t have, I would pay the school fees
if you don’t have, I would do some certain things if you don’t have. And
then you would now come and expect me to cook for you or come and meet
food when you come back home, it is not going to work. It is not just
going to work. That is just it. But if you are a man and you are doing
everything, absolutely everything, that is when you can have total
control of your wife” she said
