Female empowerment coach, Rev (Mrs.) Funke Felix-Adejumo has been married to her husband for 31yrs and when she speaks to younger women it is with authority and her experience. She said the key to success in marriage is for the man and woman to accept their roles and play it well, with love:
Many cannot seem to understand their women. What really do women want from their men?
Women want men they can look up to. We want affirmation, validation, someone who will speak highly of us in the public. We want a role model to her children, a friend, a decent man, someone who speak our love language who is responsible enough to take good care of our financial and emotional needs. A real woman want god-fearing man who can defend and stand up to defend her.
Do you believe in the concept of full housewife?
Yes and No. Yes because there may be a season when a woman needs to be a full time housewife for the sake of her children but it should not be the norm.
For women who have issues with their husbands, what is the best way to get good results?
The greatest need of a man is not s ex; he can get that from a prostitute if he’s not born again. It’s not food; he can get that from any good restaurant. A man’s greatest need is respect particularly public respect from his wife.
Some women disrespect their husbands. It’s a man you treat like a king that will treat you like a queen. Give your husband the highest level of respect and honour in your culture and watch him bloom in his love for you.
There’s no honour I will give to any human being on earth that I have not given it to my husband first. After the Lord Jesus Christ, my husband – Felix Remi Adejumo – is the only king in my kingdom and the only emperor in my empire!
– Ladies and married woman who compete for equal rights with man, listen to Funke for your own good!
