True Or False?





In a conversation with my mother today, she dished out, in her usual manner, another dose of wisdom and truth. 

She said: "Nnaa, oo sonso nwoke n'akpatagho ego si na nwanyi richara ego ya".


Translation: "It is only a man who did not make (enough) money who said that a woman finished all his money".

-Chimezie Nwodo. 


Ladies & Gentlemen is this true or false?

I don't know about you but I vote sooooo TRUE! 

Hahaha.

  4. Well, ain't we all supposed to cut our coats according to our clothe?

    Come to think of it, what happens if our clothe is not sufficient at all to sew any style of coat? We either buy more yards or sew another style (may be something close to a coat), right?

  5. There was a time when it was the norm for the man to be the sole provider for the family. However, even in those days the woman made her own immense contributions in the home, farm or by trading. In a country without a welfare benefits system the man will be expected to do his utmost to improve his income and standing. Managing the family resources should be a collaborative effort though. A woman who refuses to live within the family's means isn't being a good wife. After all, the lizard that climbs beyond the highest branch will not suddenly discover the power of flight as it falls to earth.
