Certified Professional Coach/Counselor, pastor Shola Adeoye is throwing a major spotlight on an issue in marriage which he says leads many women to depression.
The Houston-based Nigerian clergyman and married dad of two explained that many men, in the name of providing, abandon their wives to care for their children alone while they are out making money.
According to pastor Adeoye in a viral video, “Sometimes we men are selfish and we don’t look at the big picture”.
The expert went on to explain that when men are out making money, women are “stuck” taking care of the kids alone “24/7” to the point where they no longer have a life outside the home.
With time, pastor Adeoye who is the Lead Pastor of the Lighthouse/Rejuvenation Church, says these women become depressed but the men are not “sensitive” enough to see it.
He added that when the children are now grown and are off to college and the woman wants to finally live for herself, the man start seeing the woman as “arrogant”.
“Some African women have been abused unknowingly,” the pastor wrote in his video.
In the caption, he wrote:
“Women get stuck with the kids while men walk freely in the name of providing. Mentally, women are drained. It’s unhealthy for anybody to live the kind of life they are subjected to.”
