Popular US-based Kenyan preacher, motivational speaker and life coach Dr. K N Jacob has maintained that wives have a right to their husband’s phones.
In a social media post, Jacob says the men who hide their phones from their wives are either hiding another woman or money deals.
“Your wife has a right to your phone! What are you hiding? Either you’re hiding a woman or money deals. Marriage requires full disclosures,” he wrote.
According to him, husbands’ morals have a direct bearing on their wives as they have entrusted them with their future.
“Your morals have a direct bearing on your wife’s life. She has entrusted you with her future. She has a right to know that you’re not risking her life with an immoral lifestyle. So many women are insecure in their marriages because of secrecies around the man’s phone. Your wife must know every deal you transact,” he added.
The father of two who earlier this year marked his 18th wedding anniversary further asked men to allow their wives to manage family finances as they are far better they are in planning.
“Why are you working so hard if not for your family? Your money as a man is not your money, it is family money. God blesses you to support your family. It’s your honour to hand over your cheque to your wife. She’s far better than you in planning family finances. While many men scatter family resources, most women account for every penny.”
Jacob also questioned men who send money to other women saying if indeed the intentions are sincere, they should allow their wives to do the transaction saying for him he doesn’t even send his mother as that is his wife Mercy Jacob responsibility.
“Personally, I don’t send money to anyone, not even to my mother. My Mercy sends her and anyone else we support money. I don’t understand how married men send women money. Even if your intentions are sincere, you’ll be misunderstood. If you have no affair with that needy woman, why can’t your wife send her the money? Why fight with your woman while supporting a third party?” he quipped.
