A recent study made in the U.K now shows that men no longer live long as they supposed to because of the pressures on them to make make ends meet in all areas of their lives.
Instead of the pressures reducing as they get older, it increases, and the inability to meet up with these pressures gradually drag them down emotionally and make them sick until death comes knocking.
These deaths don’t come immediately, it builds up gradually and then strikes at anytime it deems fit maybe in their sleep or at work.
First of, do know that there are more female births than male?
Do you know in every road accident more men die than women?
Do you know that there are more women than men in Nigeria?
Do you know that to every man that is single there are about 4 to 5 ladies that are also single.
That’s a question for you to answer…
It doesn’t affect women because women don’t have responsibilities and when they do, it is not as much as the men. Her nuclear family may depend on her for some certain things but certainly not her extended family and the responsibility on her from her nuclear family is not as big as the man’s.
In the case where she is married she may just take care of the little needs but from the man’s side, it’s much more. He is going to take care of the house rent, the children’s school fees and sometimes the utility bills and aside from this; there are also needs from the extended family.

I GET YOU, you’re saying this is not a big deal right? That is; he just has to make more money.
Well, I have more BAD news. In his struggles to make more money. He works harder and his fatigue increases each day and this brings him to closer to his grave each day.
The more she earns(salary) the more emotionally stable she becomes because she can buy things she needs without depending on men.
In other words, she sees fat salary as an accomplishment and because no one knows she is earning up to that, she is not pressured for money from family and friends but it’s not so for men.
The more the money, the more the responsibilities. Note: even in situations where men are earning little they have responsibilities.
HERE’S A TYPICAL EXAMPLE
I bet you’ve noticed this, a woman that is not earning much don’t seem to look like it as much as men. Yes,
And as foolish as some men can be even when he is earning the same with her or lower still showers money on her by buying her extravagant gifts. So IRONIC.
And there are cases were ladies still pressure their family for financial assistance WHY because this is who they are and they need to be taken care of (Nigerian mentality)
TYPES OF MEN IN NIGERIA THAT FACE THIS PRESSURE
1} FIRST SON’s: This is a disease that only consumes male first born’s from the day they become a man. They feel they are responsible for their families and therefore go to any length to provide for them till they are out of breathe.
Diseases prone to firstborns are heart-attacks, stroke, high blood pressure and so on. Once first sons are incapacitated they feel they are no longer a man.
2} ONLY SON’s: This is also known as the “only child syndrome”, very common around the southeast. He must be around to make decisions for the family, he has to follow the cultures and traditions of the family, he must take a lion share each time there are responsibilities to take care of.
This is becoming irritating and annoying that boys in heaven avoid coming when they realize they will be the only boy because
WHO ONLY SON EPP?
If you want to see your boy grow old stop all this pressure or else they are not gonna be here for long. The diseases only sons are prone to is also related to that of the FIRST SON’s.
3} MARRIED MEN: This is the stress related to married men. They have financial responsibility, parental responsibility, spousal responsibility and the responsibility to take care of the extended family. Typically everybody wants their own share of him.
The kids wants him to play with them when he gets back from his stressful work, the wife also wants him to fulfil his marital vows at night and still expects him to go to work the next day and some women are surprised why men run from sex. Isn’t it obvious? #hmm, a man still having high libido is lucky with all this stress.
The diseases prone to married men are death in their sleep or high blood pressure.
WITH ALL these FACTS ON GROUND…
It shows that years to come,
The world would be highly depopulated of men.
And the ones that exist will not even live up to 60 years. SO SAD
Countries will no longer be able to do fight wars because there will be no men to join the army.
There would polygamous laws whereby the little men left will be forced to marry many wives. That is, 5 wives to one man.
There would be famine because there are no men to do farming.
FINAL THOUGHTS on this;
1. Let men be men. Don’t always pressure them for ends meet.
2. Wives, you want more sex then assist your hubby. Bring at least 40% to the table.
3. Extended families stop clamouring for your brother’s sweat (wealth).
4. Mothers let your children breathe after all, they didn’t ask to be born, stop imposing your responsibilities on them. You are the one who gave birth to 7 children, not them.
