Does Education Make You A Good Wife?

Some Nigerian women, once they get a college degree <even something as small as an Associates>, they begin to Shakara like no man business,  especially the babes abroad.

Does being an educated woman automatically mean that you are marriage worthy ?

Why do some Nigerian women think that because they are educated that automatically means that they are marriage material, 

Pls ooh, STOP deceiving yourselves and work on your character.  Some of them start to do one kind of Shakara like that ?! YUCK!

Being educated does not make you a GOOD wife it can only contribute towards dat.It is only a woman that has the fear of God and is submissive can only make a good wife.Education will only help you to fit into the society

Maybe you should tell us where you got the degrees before age 25 and where you are from.

I've not seen one humble female graduate in this part of the world.

Despite their partly fulfilled educational attainment, they go about bragging in all forms of manner, speaking and acting stupidly like they were born and bred in Europe.

Have you noticed the new style of speaking English,talking through the nose and stuff?

education does not make anyone a better husband or wife, frankly our great great great grand parents seem to have done better in that department than us today, and we call ourselves civilized

Education does more harm sometimes than good if the lady does not have a proper home upbringing.

Yes & NO

It's highly important but doesn't necessarily help develop/mould women

No not at all, it only gives you a better status as a woman, if you don't have a good xter, sorry wrong one, maybe you go back to your parents house for better training or wait for the next world to come.

As a lady this is what I hve got to say,the value of education cannt be over emphasized cos it gives more exposure in certain areas of life,coming to marriage it is a different issue altogether no matter how educated u are but lacking in good manners,etiquettes,and certain acceptable behaviours in general your education is in vain,so that a lady is educated doesnt guarantee her as a good wife.

It is good to be educated , but that may not make you a good wife. Proverbs 31-10-31 really explained the quality of a good wife.So if you are educated as a lady and you dont have this qualities(prov. 31-10-31).Please forget, you are not qualify to be a good a wife.

I think Education tames you and brings u out tamed but when it comes to marriage it is all about ur up bringing.Though Education adds a little to it like like taming ur attitude and so on.My own point is all about taming and just being u.Education helps in ur aproach,the way u relate to ur in laws and the people around u.

Education is not the issue its the upbringing, we have some educated ladies that are extremely good, they are God fearing and obedient and respectful. However we still have those ones that are totally bad, their mouth is like viper if you venture to challenge their feminism they will use their mouth to finish you that you will pray the ground opens and swallow you up. They are the shameless ones walking about the streets. If you are deceived by the dressing or cars or their carriage you are done for. Education is never the issue, a good wife is a good wife and a bad wife is a bad wife anyday anywhere. May God save us from the bad ones. The other day a lady stepped out of her car and landed a guy a dirty slap for brushing her car. For Gods sake where did this type of people come from. It is not in our culture for a woman to slap a man in broad day light like that and that woman is supposed to be educated. the kind of grammer she used to wash the whole matter down was anothe thing. to worsen the whole matter when the guy attended to teach her a lesson all the other ladies rained abuses on the guy that he is not a gentle man that he has no manners. What the hell

A good wife depends on what you mean by that expression. I will like to choose a wife that knows how to take care of her home and protect it.

An educated woman makes a good wife by all means, but it doesn't bring along the characters - but it makes some know how to act in public. Education is almost equal to public awareness of some facts that the illiterates don't know, and these notwithstanding, aren't criteria that can make a totally good wife.

If a wife doesn't know how to think intellectually, education may or may not enhance it. One thing I like more about most educated women is that they are opinionated. I clearly understand where you're coming from, poster. Some Nigerian women, not just the educated ones, but the ones who have managed to get out of the country always look down on their husbands; the trend is changing these days and they are beginning to know better.

However, an educated woman will do a man a lot of good. If you're man enough, you'll be able to handle her, and constantly sound it to her ears that two captains can't be in a ship if she's starting to boss you around without respect.

Can this be true?  a girl sent to a school could either  learn good or bad character from school; If Yes, then, it works in both ways, some become better wife materials while some do not, maybe it could be associated to the kinda company they had kept or found themselves in, while in school.

Literally speaking, education helps one realizes who he/she  is, hence brings out one’s full potential, and self actualization.

No wonder in that age and stage in life, a lady can statistically define what she’s actually wanted in a man. At this, she could step on toes as her dicission could put some men in the disadvantageous position.

Education puffs some women up. Once she is puffed you gonna have a lot of arguments.

Different kinds of education though. There are academic and feminist. Feminist is the more dangerous one.

Educating women so they can take jobs from men? Why cant the system create feminine jobs for women?

Why do you gotta give a woman a man's job or a man a woman's job? God, man save us from the pagans.

A nasty and ill-mannered woman will always be one irrespective of her educational background.

Though on the other hand some form of education could give you knowledge on how to go about certain things in marriage but my belief is that, its a personal thing

Nah. Being a good wife has nothing to do with education. U can have the best discipline in education and suck at being a wife at home.

Ultimately love should be the sole factor no matter the level of education. an educated woman will make vital contributions to the relationship, but a successful marriage is not necessarily guaranteed. there is a difference between Education and intelligence, some people are educated but lack intelligence while some are uneducated, but hardly intelligent.

Ladies are damned if they go to school and get an education so they support themselvescalled bitches and are damned if they rely on you mencalled gold-diggers

When can we win here?

How so true!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

An intelligent and successful single lady has a lot of bitterness coming her way, she is a constant reminder of how a failure the man is (for a man who wants to see it that way) she will have to be extra soft and extra quite for her not to be called a Dam, come to think about it, even her quietness would be regarded as arrogance!

From my experience in the office, guys like and are more comfortable with women who depend on them to deliver (although they are quick to call them dullards behind their backs)  more than those who know what to do and go ahead to do it.

What education does is enlightment in all stuff. but highly educated thus not mean good responsibility. a lady that will not be responsible wil not with all stuf of degree. Take a biblical qoutation "House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the LORD". I go for any lady I like even a medical doc and if she refuses I let her go. What a man should posses is courage

stop the bitterness.

as for the doctor - maybe she wants a man that she can control - as for me i want a real man that why i married my husband.

i earn more than him (for now that is), probably better educated and have a professional career, however i still cook and clean and maintain my position in the home as a woman and allow him to be a man so all this ur talk is just BS to me my dear. when he stepped to me he came correct therefore i give back in a correct manner. as for the independence thing - he is very proud he has a wife that he can comfortably leave for business anyway in the world and his home will still be intact.

Right, I've seen the attainment of a degree change some women. Sometimes a bitchy attitude is escalated by attaining a degree, some women start to think they're gods.

I once met a Nigerian woman who is a successful doctor in the U.S., she came to Nigeria to get married to come BUSH man in who resided in Lagos, She filed his papers and everything. The boy doesn't even work! I was quite amazed, she said to me "at least I have a Husband" every weekend, this boy hops from one party to another spending her money,

Why can't she find a so-called good man to marry ? Is it because she can control this man with her money? Yes im certain she's educated but there's probably something about her behavior that keeps certain men away,

poster, character can be good or bad whether a woman is educated or not.

some men do not even come correct and then expect heaven and earth. abeg, like i keep banging on men need the confidence and a lot of these things will not be a problem

i keep saying it if u find a nice, homely, humble, educated, God fearing, cultured and intelligent women and u have confidence all these things u see as issues will not be there.

what character are u even talking about self. like all u men are perfect self.
