There was a man who loved his wife very much. The couple had 4 children. He could give her everything he could but the woman never appreciated. Though the man was not rich, he would share all that he had with her. He could buy for her clothes and the only thing his wife could say was that the husband was fulfilling his duty as a Husband.
The man would buy a dress but in reply, the woman would mock at him, because the dress was of low quality. The man would smile at his wife and tell her “one day, I will become rich and I will buy for you all the expensive things you need”. The woman could never make any phone call unless she was requesting anything from her husband and once her request was not granted, all she could do was to quarrel for days, sometimes fight.
One evening, the man was coming from work, he bought 1Kg of meat, happily the poor man expecting to surprise his wife, he reached home found the wife and showed her the package. Then she shouted: “eh! And you call yourself a man? Which husband, apart from you, do you think comes home with just one kilogram, no cooking oil, and no other ingredients? You better leave it, you’re a good-for-nothing husband.” Then she threw the meat in the bush and went back home. The Husband felt low but he never let down his love for her.
