1. My son, if you keep spending on a woman
and she never asked you if you’re saving or
investing, and she keeps enjoying the attention,
don’t marry her.
2. My son, a woman could be a good wife to
you, some could be a good mother to your
children but if you’ve found a woman like a
mother to you, your children and your family,
please don’t let her go.
3. My son, don’t confine the position of your
wife to the kitchen, where did you get that from?
Even in our days, we had farm-lands where they
worked every morning . . . that was our office.
4. My son, if I tell you that you’re the head of
the house, don’t look at your pocket; look if you
will see a smile on your wife’s face.
5. My son, if you want to have a long life, let
your wife be in-charge of your salary, it will be
difficult for her to spend it when she’s aware of
the home needs and bills to pay but if it’s in
your care, she will keep you asking even when
all has been spent.
6. My son, don’t ever beat your woman, the pain
in her body is nothing to be compared to the
wound on her heart and that means you may be
in trouble living with a wounded woman.
7. My son, now that you’re married, if you live a
bachelor kind of life with your wife, you will
soon be single again.
8. My son, in our days, we had many wives and
many children because of our large farm-lands
and many harvests, there are hardly any land
for farming anymore, so embrace your woman
9. My son, under the cocoa tree that I did meet
your mother could be your eateries and
restaurants of nowadays, but remember, the
closet thing we did there was to embrace each
10. My son, don’t be carried away when you
start making more money, instead of spending
on those tiny legs that never knew how hard
you worked to get it, spend it on that woman
that stood by you all along.
11. My son, when I threw little stones or
whistled at the window of your mother father’s
house, to call her out, it was not for sex, it was
because I missed her so much.
12. My son, remember, when you say your wife
has changed, there could be something you’ve
stopped doing too.
13. My son, your mother, Asake rode the bicycle
with me before I bought that tortoise car
outside there, any woman that won’t endure
with you in your little beginning should not
enjoy your riches.
14. My son, don’t compare your wife to any
woman, there are ways she’s enduring you too
and has she ever compared you to any man?
15. My son, there is this thing you people call
feminism, well, if a woman claim to have equal
right with you in the house, divide all the bills
into two equal parts, take one part and ask her
to start paying the other part.
16. My son, I met your mother a virgin and I
took more yams to her father, if you don’t meet
your wife a virgin, don’t blame her, what I didn’t
tell you is that our women had prestige.
17. My son, I didn’t send your sisters to school
because I was foolish like many to think a
female child won’t extend my family name,
please don’t make that mistake, the kind of
female achievers I see nowadays has made the
male-gender an ordinary tag.
18. My son, your mother have once locked up
the cloth I was wearing and almost tore it
because she was angry, I did not raise my hand
to beat her because of a day like this, so that I
can be proud to tell you that I never for once
beat your mother.
19. My son, in our days, our women had more
of natural beauty, though I wouldn’t lie to you,
some had minor painting of their appellation
mostly on their arms, the ones you people now
call tattoo, but don’t forget that they didn’t
expose any part of their body like your women
of nowadays.
20. My son, your mother and I are not interested
in what happens in your marriage, try to handle
issues without always coming to us.
21. My son, remember I bought your mother’s
first sewing machine for her, help your wife
achieve her dreams just as you’re pursuing
22. My son, don’t stop taking care of me and
your mother, it’s a secret of growing old and
having children to take care of you too.
23. My son, pray with your family, there is a
tomorrow you don’t know, talk to God that
knows everything, everyday.
