Good post and a very important issue, well said by some of the honorable members of this board but some of the contributors do not seem to get it right. Yon see it is very good for you to take care of your parent the Bible instructed us to do that. However, the same Bible also made us to understand that, " for this reason a man and a woman will leave their parent at a certain time and cleave together to become one flesh, i.e to become husband and wife to raise their own family to fulfill the injunction of God on the earth. So it is left for as a wife and a husband to use the mind and wisdom that God has given to you to balance everything you do in that institution of marriage. That is why spirituality is very important in your life.

For your advice my dear you must let your husband or your wife to know or even both of you should plan whatever you want to give your parents together and as you do that in harmony the blessing that is associated with giving to your parents will be pour into your family. Pls it should not be with fight and strifes God bless you all.

let me see the man that will stop me from sending my parents money. As rich as old man is he will always appreciate every little gift and show it to all his friends and boast to them. If you buy him a tin of milk he will bring it out when his friends come visit and offhand tell them that his kids brought this for him form Abuja, at this their age i realized that parents do dat a lot, his friends who are also really well to do also do that to him because he comes home and tells me about what other kids bought their parents. I realized that when you get old, money, cars and everything else means nothing to you, you just wanna look at your kids and say "yeh, If i did that, then I must have done something worthwhile in my life time"

SO believe me, you have the right to clear your bank account for your folks

You should support your parents, but not to the detriment of your immediate family.

Yes, in case you do not know, your immediate family is your husband family

As Africans, it's our duty to support our parents.

However, if you're married to a foreigner they might not see the wisdom in this.

If you're married to a foreigner, try and understand if he protests.

All you need to do is calmly explain that it is our responsibility and it's the norm.

I advice though that if you do send to your parents,

Don't forget to occasionally send to your in-laws too (if they're Africans).

Not bad at all

If married, if you give ur folks 100$, give your man folks 50$.

@Aniody,thanks for making my day,observe men who tell u not 2 reachout to your family or parents,it becomes difficult for them to reach out in kind and gifts to inlaws in marriage,yet they wont let ladies send to their parents,pls take note u need to be more diplomatic in dealing with men,when it get to his time,if he has female children,will he allow a man to tell his daughter to forget him for good.long live your parents. Stay blessed.

It is not bad at all,dont let any man deceive you,it is biblical for children to take care of their parents,whether man,woman,married or unmarried,if u can pay your tithe and offering in church,how much more your parents dat sent u 2 school to be a success,if u know d mystery of the blessing there u wld almost dash them all,constant prayers and promotion wld come 4rm your job when u do it.pls when doing it,be careful with d kind of man u re moving with,if u discover he is selfish u can do it at is back,am a man also but some men could be funny,
