Many beta males and feminists will not agree with me (anza na @gashwin ), but I will say it anyway because I don't give a shit. Do I think women should be empowered as a whole? Sure. But you as a man should be smart about it. For married men here, you should know that empowering your wife financially or intellectually will always work against you and probably cause a divorce. I don't blame women because that is their nature and they cannot help it. A woman is wired to date UP. She agreed to marry you because she perceived you as her superior both financially and intellectually. Educating her or starting a business for her will almost always work against you in that relationship and madharau itaanza hapo. The internet is full of stories about niggas who thought it was wise to start a business or educate their dumb wives only to end up in a nasty divorce. That is how 99% of women are so don't provide one example to try and prove this fact wrong. When you take away the bullshit and lovey dovey nonsense of young couples, the real reason many relationships last for long is because the man is always in a superior position financially and intellectually compared to the wife. The wife always needs the man financially and intellectually, otherwise she is gone. That is how she sees value in him. If you try to close that gap by empowering her, she will seek a nigga she deems superior to her (divorce is inevitable). She will trade up. I like women as much as the next guy. In fact, I wouldn't ask anyone to prevent a woman from empowering herself because that is her individual right. Just don't be dumb enough to do something that will work against you in a marriage. If you want to empower anyone, empower your children, not your wife. In the past I would never understand why a rich guy would take his wife to Maasai Mara for a week but never open a kiosk for her, but I know better now. So, if you are about to do something stupid like educating your wife or starting a business for her, use that money to buy an asset and thank me later. Otherwise, you will be the victim in a nasty divorce a year or two from now.
