The financial responsibilities and commitment that are being shouldered by husbands in Africa are no doubt the factors responsible for the untimely death of many husbands.

African culture and traditions which regard husbands as supreme heads of the families have also placed enormous and unavoidable responsibilities on them.

Husbands’ eagerness and curiosity to meet up with all family commitments have adversely created tension which at the long run cause untimely and premature death to most of the husbands in African Continent.

Researches have revealed that husbands in Africa are dieing most times before their wives because of these notable and unavoidable responsibilities:

Firstly, payment of children’s school fees has been noted and acknowledged as one of the primary responsibilities of a responsible husband, the husband would ensure the payment of the children’s school fees no matter their numerical strength and most especially if he is married more than two wives, the children of all wives would be catered for with no regard to preferential treatment.

Not only that but husbands also need to ascertain that children are clothed decently and also ensure they live under an average roof, foods, shelter and cloths are unavoidable necessities of life that husbands under African traditions providing for the families at large.

Wives’ demands are the most key ones which husbands must give adequate attention, for instance, wives no matter how rich would demand their husbands to provide them cloths, shoes, motors, pocket money and others to meet up with other wives of other husbands.

Husbands who are keeping their wives under rentage apartments would never relax until their own buildings are made, husbands are to run up and down on how the money to facilitate the completion of the projects would be obtained.
