Wise words

  1. My son, if you keep spending on
    a woman and she never asked you
    if you’re saving or investing, and
    she keeps enjoying the attention,
    don’t marry her.
  2. My son, a woman could be a
    good wife to you, some could be a
    good mother to your children but
    if you’ve found a woman like a
    mother to you, your children and
    your family, please don’t let her
  3. My son, don’t confine the
    position of your wife to the
    kitchen, where did you get that
    from? Even in our days, we had
    farm-lands where they worked
    every morning . . . that was our
  4. My son, if I tell you that you’re
    the head of the house, don’t look at
    your pocket; look if you will see a
    smile on your wife’s face.
  5. My son, if you want to have a
    long life, let your wife be in-charge
    of your salary, it will be difficult
    for her to spend it when she’s
    aware of the home needs and bills
    to pay but if it’s in your care, she
    will keep you asking even when all
    has been spent.
  6. My son, don’t ever beat your
    woman, the pain in her body is
    nothing to be compared to the
    wound on her heart and that
    means you may be in trouble living
    with a wounded woman.
  7. My son, now that you’re
    married, if you live a bachelor kind
    of life with your wife, you will soon
    be single again.
  8. My son, in our days, we had
    many wives and many children
    because of our large farm-lands
    and many harvests, there are
    hardly any land for farming
    anymore, so embrace your woman
  9. My son, under the cocoa tree
    that I did meet your mother could
    be your eateries and restaurants of
    nowadays, but remember, the
    closet thing we did there was to
    embrace each other.
  10. My son, don’t be carried away
    when you start making more
    money, instead of spending on
    those tiny legs that never knew
    how hard you worked to get it,
    spend it on that woman that stood
    by you all along.
  11. My son, when I threw little
    stones or whistled at the window
    of your mother father’s house, to
    call her out, it was not for sex, it
    was because I missed her so much.
  12. My son, remember, when you
    say your wife has changed, there
    could be something you’ve stopped
    doing too.
  13. My son, your mother, Asake
    rode the bicycle with me before I
    bought that tortoise car outside
    there, any woman that won’t
    endure with you in your little
    beginning should not enjoy your
  14. My son, don’t compare your
    wife to any woman, there are ways
    she’s enduring you too and has
    she ever compared you to any
  15. My son, there is this thing you
    people call feminism, well, if a
    woman claim to have equal right
    with you in the house, divide all
    the bills into two equal parts, take
    one part and ask her to start
    paying the other part.
  16. My son, I met your mother a
    virgin and I took more yams to her
    father, if you don’t meet your wife
    a virgin, don’t blame her, what I
    didn’t tell you is that our women
    had prestige.
  17. My son, I didn’t send your
    sisters to school because I was
    foolish like many to think a female
    child won’t extend my family
    name, please don’t make that
    mistake, the kind of female
    achievers I see nowadays has made
    the male-gender an ordinary tag.
  18. My son, your mother have
    once locked up the cloth I was
    wearing and almost tore it because
    she was angry, I did not raise my
    hand to beat her because of a day
    like this, so that I can be proud to
    tell you that I never for once beat
    your mother.
  19. My son, in our days, our
    women had more of natural
    beauty, though I wouldn’t lie to
    you, some had minor painting of
    their appellation mostly on their
    arms, the ones you people now call
    tattoo, but don’t forget that they
    didn’t expose any part of their
    body like your women of

    not interested in what happens in
    your marriage, try to handle issues
    without always coming to us.

    your mother’s first sewing
    machine for her, help your wife
    achieve her dreams just as you’re
    pursuing yours.

    of me and your mother, it’s a
    secret of growing old and having
    children to take care of you too.
  23. My son, pray with your family,
    there is a tomorrow you don’t
    know, talk to God that knows
    everything, everyday.
