There is so much controversy about what to, and what not to expect from an intimate partner in a relationship. In a new episode of Real Talk Season II, the host, Nicole Asinugo brought to the table of discussion an interesting relationship based topic – Expectations and Entitlements.
The average Nigerian ideology believes that the man is the head of the family and the sole provider, therefore should meet every expectation of his wife/girlfriend. A good number of men are okay with being the main pillar while the ladies support. However, what is the ideal standard of expectations and entitlements in a relationship? Are women allowed to go wild with their financial wants provided they find men who can meet those desires? Is it okay for a woman to expect so much from the man she’s in a relationship with? Should guys allow their girlfriends to have their way by giving them everything they ask for just in the name of making them happy?
These questions were tackled by the three On Air Personalities, Adenike Oyetunde, Shola Thompson and Valentine Ohu who joined Nicole on the show.
They discussed the “entitlement mentality” in social interactions. Should one really feel entitled to expect a certain pattern of behavior from others just because they have a sexual affiliation? Find out more in this exciting episode of Real Talk.
