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
fInd 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? Evenin our days,
we had farm-lands where
they worked every
morning . . . that was our
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
homeneeds 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 closely.
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 other.
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
12* My son, remember, when
you say your wife has
changed, there could be
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
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
20* My son, your mother and I
is 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 yours.
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 atomorrow
you don’t know, talk to God
that knows everything,
24* My son, if I had taken my
time to tell you all these and
your marriage did not last like
that of your mother and I,
then you are a bastard.
