A Ghanaian pastor, Apostle Ekow Badu Wood, has advised all men in general to pay their wives some stipends for their selfless dedication towards the management of the homes.
Mr wood argued that women deserve this monthly salary because they run the home effectively and since a maid could do the same thing and be paid, wives should also be considered for payment.
To buttress his assertion, he narrated a true-life story about himself which illustrated the importance women play domestically. He said there was a time when his wife travelled and left their children in his care.
He said he struggled to cater for the kids in his wife’s absence which clearly had not been raised with the necessary skills to undertake such chores.
Apostle Wood believes it is unfair that so much house chores women do are taken for granted.
Apostle Wood, a former general secretary of the Church of Pentecost quipped: “A fair way of showing gratitude for selfless service to the family is for the husbands to pay a monthly salary to their wives. This payment is as a form of motivation to encourage them to do more.”
He added that the peace, calm and stability enjoyed in many homes emanates from the good works of wives who go the extra mile to pull all the strings to ensure sanity in the home.
