Do you agree that women should share bills with their husbands and pay rent? Well, that is the latest advice from a popular skit maker and actress, Bukunmi Adeaga Ilori, who is better known as Kie Kie.
Kie Kie has stated that it is wrong for married women to leave the payment of bills such as water, electricity, rent, and others to their husbands.
She furthered that the payment of bills should not be the sole responsibility of the husband but instead a shared responsibility between husbands and wives.
According to Kie Kie, she partakes in the payment of bills with her millionaire husband, Mr. Tunji Ilori.
The comedienne made her suggestion during the latest episode of the TokeMoments podcast hosted by actress, Toke Makinwa.
According to Kie Kie, there was nothing wrong with women sharing the burden of managing the home with their husbands just as it was cool for married women to be treated to expensive dates and vacations by their spouses.
They (women) must contribute to the running of their homes she asserted
but maintained that they must contribute financially to the running of their homes. She holds the belief that if women contribute to managing the home financially, husbands would not easily walk them out in the event of divorce.
Kie Kie said, “Me for one, I tell women: how will you be living in a house and you’re not paying rent? To me, it doesn’t make sense.
“I’m living in this house, we are sharing the rent. On my birthday, fly me to Dubai, Barcelona. That’s good. Buy me a fendi bag, Christian dior… Beautiful.
“But that I will be living in that house and not paying rent, it is not possible. So that when we want to divorce, you carry chair, I carry television, you carry the roof, I carry the floor. We will share everything equally. You can’t tell me get out of my house.”
