YEN.com.gh has engaged its cherished readers in a social media poll which asks the question: “Where is the best place to find a good wife?”
The post which has reached nearly 90,000 people as at the time this report was being filed has triggered a lot of reactions from the readers.
While many people hold the view that the best wives are found in the church room, it seems over 60% of the readers, women inclusive, are against that opinion.
According to some of them who explained their points, ‘church’ ladies are fake, pretenders and more dangerous even than the women found at the club.
For instance, in her answer to the post, one female reader by name Blessing Dicta argued that even though she is a lady, she would never advice any gentleman to look to the church for a wife.
According to Dicta, most ‘church’ ladies put up fake attitudes because of marriage and once they get married, they start showing their ‘true colours’.
She wrote: “Not church because we ladies can fake attitudes because of marriage so the best way is their homes n community....when they are in their homes they are real n the community knows them best so men be a spy, same advice to we ladies.”
In the view of another reader, Godwin Cool, a commercial sex worker could even pass as a good wife than the woman found in the church room.
He wrote: “You can get your life partner even at night clubs or tutuline you still meet your life partner over there. But the Church ladies are even more dangerous than the word dangerous.”
Another interesting comment that caught YEN’s attention is the one made by another reader Emmanuel Piyo Andrews.
According to him, the best wives are found in the United States of America or in London and not Africa.
One would wonder why Andrews, also an African would speak agaisnt his own African ladies in this way, but since everyone is entitled to his opinion, he cannot be blamed.
In all, most of the readers believe that the best place to find the best wife is within one’s community and among childhood friends.
Such a comment was made by Nana Yaw Nyarko: “The best place to land a good wife is to look back among your childhood friends. Unless none is available, never believe in love at first sight as women in Ghana today act their love-life.”
“The churches don't have anymore Christian women left in there. If one migrated from a village to settle in Accra, better go back to your roots for your wife cos she's been praying for your attention.”
