Good morning all! I may or may not have woken up like that but im'ma still hashtag it #Flawless. LOL. Moving on...
Lets ask you all a question, apparently some of you have some very strong, interesting and intelligent opinions and they'll be valued right now.
So, say for instance Chioma and Femi are engaged. Chioma lives in Lagos, Femi lives in Abuja. Chioma works with (Mobil) and earns about 800,000 Naira monthly, minus other allowances. Femi works with (UBA) and earns 400,000 Naira monthly, allowances inclusive. Their wedding is coming up in a few months and neither wants to have to relocate. Chioma has been informed by HR that if she leaves Mobil Lagos then she's no longer a Mobil staff as there's no vacancy for a position for her in Abuja. Femi has never lived in Lagos, his family has always lived in Abuja and that's where he plans to spend his life, besides he opines that it's the woman who moves to join her husband and not the other way round.
Although both Chioma and Femi have halfheartedly hunted for jobs in each other's cities, so far neither has been successful so each wants to hold on to the jobs they have in their various cities.
What do you think should happen in this scenerio? When couples live in different states (or countries), who do you think should make the move and why? What factors are to come into consideration when deciding who should make the move? If they both earned equally would your answer still be the same?
Personally I would like to know why it's almost ALWAYS the woman that has to make the move. Does this come under submissiveness as well or what?...
Ps; Chinny T it seems you were busy last night on Thelma Thinks. I noticed how you took the time to leave a comment on almost every post. Nice one!
