At the risk of upsetting the rabid social media feminists parading around (nicknamed ‘Yaanom’ by GhanaCelebrities.Com editor Chris-Vincent Agyapong), Ghanaian lawyer Ace Ankomah laid out his advice for people looking to getting married, culled from his own experiences, as he put it.
And Ankomah, in an admittedly ‘controversial’ part of his post, described himself as an ‘old fashioned’ man who believes the kitchen belongs to his wife and he has nothing to be doing in there.
In his post, the lawyer said he believes both men and women must work but it is absolutely the man’s responsibility to provide in the house. In that same vein, it is the wife’s responsibility to take care of kitchen stuff using the resources provided by him (the man.)
“I am quite old-fashioned. A man must be a husband and father. A woman has her role as wife and mother. We can’t swap roles. We are equal but different. A man must PROVIDE, work like a bull and brute, and PROVIDE some more.” Ankomah opined.
“And this is where I get controversial. A woman, even when she works (and every woman should work, if she can) should provide only if she wants to. But she is in charge of everything else that has to do with the home. Yes, it is her kitchen, not mine. That’s why she chose everything in there. My only space in the house is my basement. Everywhere else is hers. I don’t care. Just don’t paint our room pink. That’s all.
“Don’t MAKE her do it. PROVIDE the means to do it so that even if she doesn’t do it herself or isn’t there to do it, it still gets done.” he added.
