A woman who was eager to please her husband and be the perfect wife in the early stages of her marriage has shared her hilarious story to “set a few people free”.
The doctor, Nena Bekee on twitter narrated how she listened to advice from people about what a wife should be and do in a marriage to please her husband, but her husband was not keen on those things.
Dr. N recalled how she dressed well to make herself appealing to her husband when he returned from work as people advice newly married women, but when her husband saw her, he asked if she was going out.
When she pointed out that she was only trying to look good for him, he told her she’s at home and ought to be comfortable.
She also narrated how she wanted to help her husband pack when he was travelling as women are advised to. But her husband declined and told her he prefers to pack himself so he can easily know where he kept things.
According to the doctor, she is sharing her story to advise people, especially single sis, to calm down with the advices people give them because marriage is not that hard.

One day, I remembered that “they” said you should get dressed up when your husband is coming home so that they will not be tempted By the “Strange Woman” I put on a nice outfit, did my hair and wore perfume.
When Hubs came in, I went to the door and posed.
Him: Are you going somewhere?
Me: No Him: Sure?
Him: So why???
Me: I just wanted to…
Him: But you’re at home?
Me: I just wanted to look nice to welcome you.
Him: Hian! You’re at home. You need to be comfortable. Relax abeg…
