If you are a man doing a good job in Nigeria and you are planning to relocate with your family to the UK, think twice or think very well before you make the switch.
Do not resign from your job. Do not sell all that you own. Do not break the bank to come here. Also, think very well of who your wife is and is she the type of woman that will not misuse the laws of this land against you once she gets here?
Can you stand your wife being the breadwinner and you look after the children?
Why do I ask these questions? It is because the pendulum does switch over here. Women do get better jobs in some cases and as a ‘big’ man, you may struggle to get a job that fits your profile or that you are comfortable with which may affect your mental health.
These scenarios have affected many marriages and relationships. Some are now living apart and some have filed for divorce. I have been dealing with a lot of these cases recently with the husband blaming the wife for pushing him into ‘this mess’.
Why did I say Nigeria? It is because they are mostly the ones having this switch issue and situation shocks. Other nationalities are usually ok with it.
I just thought I should let you know before you make the switch.
