Renowned Ghanaian actress , Kafui Danku, has issued a strong caution to women in relationships, urging them to avoid assuming the role of a boyfriend’s maid.
Men are less inclined to take such women seriously, according to her forthright advise, and may even choose to terminate the relationship if they feel taken for granted.
Women, according to Kafui Danku, should avoid becoming doormats because men are more attracted to women who keep their independence and personality. She emphasizes that some men may choose to spend time and money on women who are not always available or accommodating.
Instead, the famed actress advises women to focus on their worth and guarantee that men spend their resources in the relationship, both financially and emotionally. By pushing men to spend time and money on them, women may protect their self-esteem and have something to show for their efforts if the relationship ends.
“Before he gets what he wants, he must work for it. Men only stay when they invest their money and their time. Why would he pamper you if he doesn’t spend his money or time, and you give him what he wants so quickly? Why do you go and cook and clean? Are you his maid? If you are a wife, then, of course, you are taking care of your home. But if he hasn’t married you, why should he marry you when you do all these things? “
Kafui Danku is a great believer in guys putting in effort and working for what they want in a relationship. She wonders why women should readily satisfy a man’s wishes in the absence of genuine commitment and investment on his part. Instead, she advises women to wait until the guy has made the step of marriage before assuming all of the customary obligations of a wife.
