73% of Pulse Nigeria Poll voters are of the belief that marriage is far above any career path and as such, the reader who sent in this letter about her husband wanting her to leave her job, must comply.

Read the letter here:

"My name is Dupe and I am an actress. I have been married for three years but as it stands, I think my marriage is heading for the rocks because of my husband's stance that I must abandon a job I have nurtured for so many years and now that I am about to reap the benefits, he wants me to dump it and become a full time housewife.

My anger with my husband, Segun, is that he met me as an actress and before we got married, we had talked about my job and he told me he has no problem with that and assured me that I would still continue after we got married.

But now, he tells me that his family and friends are not comfortable that his wife is in the entertainment industry, that they see actresses as prostitutes and wayward. But I can swear that the assertion is not true. There are wayward women in every profession and since I got married, I have not given Segun any cause to doubt my faithfulness.

I have tried to let him see reasons why I should continued with the profession that has been part of my life from childhood but he has given me an ultimatum: either abandon the job or I leave his house.

I am very confused and don't know what to do.


The teaser for the day was:

Should a woman to leave her job and become a full time house wife to save her marriage?

How Nigeria voted:

73% - Yes, marriage is more important than any job

27% - No, she should stick to her job

Where would your vote go?
