A Nigerian man claimed it was a “sign of disrespect” for a woman to eat meat first when dining with her boyfriend or husband.
The man gave a mixed response in his post, saying that no matter how many pieces of meat there were in the food, the woman was allowed to wait until her spouse chose first before eating the meat.
He pointed out that it is disrespectful for a woman to eat meat before her partner while they are eating together.
In his words,
“When eating with your boyfriend/husband, no matter how many pieces of meat in the food, do not take meat first, it’s a sign of disrespect.”
Reacting, a Twitter user @thatijawgirl wrote,
“See rubbish talk. My boyfriend knows I don’t joke with meat. If there are 5 pcs, I own 3. Ten years down with 3 children, boyfriend now hubby does not even drag it. Y’all be giving nonsense takes based on selfishness.”

“You people’s parents must really be terrible people cos how did you get all this nonsense upbringings? So if your momma finishes eating before your dad, she will wash hand, wait for him to finish eating and collecting meat before she can eat meat? Ndi ara”.
