A wife shouldn’t need permission from her husband to go out – Lecturer Dipo

A Wife Should Not Need Permission From Her Husband to Go Out: Lecturer Dipo Stirs Massive Reactions Online, A lecturer in the UK, Dr Dipo Awojide, has spoken on marriage and how the woman is independent in making a certain decision.

In a post on Thursday, March 31, he said that a husband’s permission for a wife to go out whenever she wants to is not necessary.

She is not a teenager

He, however, added that the woman could inform the husband about her movement plans. The lecturer is of the opinion that such ‘tradition’ should be discouraged since the wife is not a teen.

“This is not exactly true, at a point you would practically seek permission from your spouse [each-other], if both of you claim to submit to each other and have become one. Let alone if one claims to be the head or lead.”

“I don’t I can go out without my husband permission sir. Even if he’s out of town, I must call him for permission before going out….. It’s my duty as a wife to respect my husband.”
