Actress Salma Mumin has spoken out against men who stand by and do nothing as their female spouses struggle financially when they are in a position to assist.
You’re at the wrong place when something happens, according to Salma.
“I believe you are in the wrong relationship if you are a young lady dating a man who is not dedicated to ensuring your success in life; if he is strong and capable but does not support you. On Nana Romeo’s mid-morning talk show Ayekoo Ayekoo on Accra 100.5 FM, the award-winning actress stated, “I don’t think that’s what you need.”
She offered some clarification saying “I am not saying your man is exactly obligated or should do something for you by force but my point is that if you’re a woman in your prime and you’re trying to move ahead in life but your significant other, who has the adequate means to help doesn’t provide to make you look good and progress, whether you want to go to school or start a business or whatever, then you’re at the wrong place obviously.”
“If your partner won’t help you, who should? Excuse me to cite this example but consider a situation where your father is not well-to-do…” she argued.
The 30-year-old entrepreneur made a strong point but didn’t provide ladies who were in this predicament with a clear option.
“My argument is that it’s just plain wickedness if we’re dating and I’m having financial problems while we both know you have the resources to help,” she said.
