Curfew In My Marriage....

43

Are there actual men who gives their wives time on when to get back from their business places? I like to meet the wives please and ask how they are surviving As I Dey so, I don’t have any problem with his curfew, but their are times I get held up with so much work in the market, and the curfew won’t work, and I want him to just you know nicely understand as long as I have reasons with proof, but Guys I dont even have the audacity/ right to take permission from him for time extension there will be wahala. Okay so i am not too good with expressing myself through writing, but I will try.... I run an online Clothing store, so I have tailors in the major market that helps makes my clothes, most times 24hours isn’t even enough, but hubby wants me to always get home 4pm everyday? And trust me I try so hard to keep up with his curfews, but on some days I get really really held up with so much work I need to stay in the market later than the given curfew. Once this happens it becomes a serious problem between us both, he will call me and shout at me like a teenager taking instructions from her dad, his voice would be so high I can feel his wrath from the phone as he is either slamming his hands on the table as he spits fire or breathing hard as he speaks PleaE note that he isn’t a violent man and has never raised a finger on me, however he will gladly go days without speaking or eating in the house for certain reasons. But the attitude I get from him for coming home later than 4pm is no different from my dad’s growing up as a teenager, why does he have to get so mad when I come home late for obvious reasons at my age, the matter just tire me. E come be like say naa my papa house I still Dey. Or is it the times I need to go out with the kids, I must take permission from him first before I leave, even if it’s the neighbor’s house, I must take permission. Am not a woman who keeps friends, neither am I an out door person, I never go anywhere, all I know is market where my hustle and am back home. For instance, I couldn’t make the curfew today cause my tailors are traveling and I need to make sure all work is done properly before they go. Hubby calls me to ask at 3:30pm as he daily does (never misses a day without calling @3:30 to confirm If am home) I tried to break down reasons why I might be late. Òmo he didn’t let me alter a word, man was sooo mad, like i can’t even explain the fury. And when I try to speak with him after he returned from work about this issues his point is if my dad sets rules would I go against it?? And my question is but you aren’t my dad?? And he scuffs and ends his statement with I need to see a counselor. (I need marriage counselors contact if any) Guys please what’s your take on curfew in marriages. Is this even normal or is there a better way to handle it I pray you all drop opinion with sense, cause when oga is calm I will have him read your opinions.
