A husband should not covet his wife’s income Reno Omokri said in response to a commenter on his early post who said a husband owns the wife and all she has, both good and bad.
In response, Reno made a video setting records straight, he said the earnings of a husband belongs to the family that is his wife and children and he determines how it should be spent. But the income from the wife is for the wife and children, the man should not convert, or lust about his wife’s income because it will affect his progress.
He said a husband doesn’t own his wife as the commenter insinuated, he continued by saying, that the wife is allowed to own her own property, also allowed to decide whether or not to give account to her husband. Quoting from the scriptures he said, a virtuous wife has her own earnings.

He earlier made a post to women; he wrote:
Read this comment. This is why I have always taught that your excitement and desire to be a wife should not make you sell your life. Some men are not looking for wives, they are looking for property to own, and exploit like beasts of burden. Even Scripture says that a virtuous wife “Considers a field and buys it; OUT OF HER EARNINGS.”-Proverbs 31:16. Scripture allows a woman to have her own earnings and her own property. The only requirement is that she uses it for her family. If you read the whole of Proverbs 31, you will see the qualities of a good wife. She uses her personal earnings to look after her children and domestic staff. So to my fellow men, I warn again that your wife’s money is not for you as a husband. It is for her and the children. Your own money is for you, her and the children. Don’t cast your gaze at her money. Such men hardly progress. Leave her money alone. Go and make your own. There is such a thing as housewife. There is no such thing as househusband.
This was his message to husbands:
Your money is meant for you, your wife and your children to spend. But your wife’s money is not meant for you to spend. Don’t even think of it. Don’t make plans for it. Pretend it doesn’t even exists. Never eye her money. Leave it for her and the children. Make your own! Men who put their eyes on their wives monies hardly progress. It is against nature and good judgment. Yes, two shall become one. But you are the head of the family. A head is designed to carry weight, and not just to Lord it about. Carry the weight!
