Jealousy and pressure by friends have made some men lost the happiness in their homes. Rather than look inward and think of how they will improve the well being of their families they have listened to their friends and used their hands destroy their families. Consider this and give appropriate advice to this family; hoping others will learn from it.

We were happy together until my husband recently returned home and declared that it was time for me to quit my job.

We have been married for six years and have two lovely kids. We were generally happy until he recently returned home and declared that it was time for me to quit my job as a lawyer and be a stay-at-home mom. We got into a hot argument about it.

My parents raised me to be financially independent and it has been working very well for us as a couple. While he caters for school fees, I pay rent for our home and we are currently saving money for our children's university education.
I grew up watching my parents working hard to put food on the table. I am a career woman and he knew this when we met. I sweated through law school so that I could build my career and I am finally reaping big from my hard work and now he wants me to quit!

I have asked him what brought this up and all he says is that it is just his wish. I even suggested we go for marriage counselling but he refused. I have asked him whether he feels neglected. he would not give an answer He has gone to tell my parents that if I do not obey his orders, they will have to come and pick me up. My father got so angry that he threatened to return the dowry. The whole situation is ridiculous.

I feel it is unfair for anyone to be put in this position. As if I am a child who does not know what I want out of my own life!
I feel my husband is acting a prepared script. This is not normal. Help
