Would You Quit Your Job If Hubby Insists?

By GIDEON OPARINDE

Sunday, November 15, 2009

Yinka is a banker while his wife, Funsho, is a journalist. By virtue of their jobs, the two of them close late . They’ve been married happily for two years before trouble reared its head in their home. That was when the children started coming. Yinka suddenly realized that his wife must come back home early to take care of their two children as their housemaid has given notice of her leaving at the end of the month.

The pressure is on Funsho at home and her office as her editor is always on her neck to deliver. Now the bombshell Yinka wants her to quit her lucrative job, and by implication, her budding career to take care of her children. This is a job that took her several years of job-hunting to secure. She was not sure the job would be waiting for her when she decides to return. She is at a crossroads.

Many men are asking their wives to quit their jobs to take care of the children and for other reasons that range from perceived infidelity at the office and health grounds. If you were in this situation, what would you choose? Your home or your job?

She is a career woman. She will resent him eventually. I would suggest that they both plan it so she can start some sort of business if she is open to it. She can build that around the children and be available for them when needed. I think that is a better compromise

Nothing can make me to quit my job, as long as i know i am not doing anything wrong.

But if i have always look for how to quit and she wants me to quit and face biz 100%, i surely would.
