Learn From My Story that Submission is not Foolishness

I have always thought being a submissive wife was the key to marital happiness. We were taught at home and at church to submit to our husbands as the head of the home. What we forget is that it is not foolishness.

So when I got married 8 years ago, submission to my husband was my watchword. I made sure that I submitted to him in everything as it was expected of me.

My husband word was like Law in my home. I was always afraid to challenge him because I didn’t want to be that unsubmissive wife. Even if I was dead tired and he wanted sex, I could not deny him sex.

Even when my husband made me make him a signatory to my account and asks for my check book or ATM card I could not say no. I could not deny him when he asked me to help his unqualified siblings get jobs in the company where I work.

My career has been going well and I have climbed to a very high position in my profession. I was given an official car and a driver. Without telling me, my husband withdrew money from my account and purchased a brand new car and employed a driver.

I almost collapsed when I saw the sum of N6.5 million leave my account to pay an auto dealer. I thought my account had been hacked. It was when he drove the jeep home later that day that it all made sense.

As if that wasn’t enough, he uses that car that he bought with my hard earned money to drive about with different kinds of women. He is a confirmed and an unrepentant womanizer.

But then again, I have now learned that submission is not another word for stupidity, naivety, foolishness, and indulgence. It has taken me a while to get to this point but I am changing. I am thinking of setting limits and boundaries for my husband because I am tired of being taken for a fool.

I will be back to share my journey with you. Watch this space.
