Recently, I was asking how well prepared was a young man that came to inform me of his wedding plans. He told me the wedding was going to be on a low key, (obviously for a financial reason) because he was someone that liked something big and he enjoyed partying.
So, I asked him what were the things he had put together to make a life easy for the young lady that would be joining him in few weeks when the wedding would come up. His response was what many young men would have given. He mentioned TV, Home theater system, Set of Furniture, Mobile air conditioner, small size generator etc.
After he landed, I asked him if he had gas cooker, washing machine, pepper grinder, freezer or microwave. He said No! And I told him he was selfish. He only bought what he really needed as a man. I told him he was not well prepared to bring a woman into his life.
But why did I say so? Was I asking for too much from the young man, who was just planning to start a new life? You would see what I mean in few minutes.
1. GAS COOKER
It’s not until you have a five-face gas cooker, as a young man, before we can say you are ready. You don’t need to break your neck because you want to prepare an enabling environment for the young woman. If all you have is just one-face gas cooker cylinder, you are good to go.
We all know that currently, kerosene is even more expensive. Also, using cooking stove to prepare meals isn’t as fast in cooking as gas cooker. There is this fume that kerosene emits that causes irritation to the eye. Sometimes, it even smells in the cloth.
In order words, its not out of place to ask a young man, that’s getting closed to taking a woman in as a wife, to have at least one of these 12kg gas cooker cylinder.
You won’t know how helpful this little effort would be to the new wife until she moves in with you. You can then progress to get a better one as the household increases.
We all know how useful this electronic gadget is, especially this period of epileptic power supply. These freezers come in different sizes and prizes. But if as a young man all that you are preserving would be for your consumption and your wife to be, small size freezer will still do the job.
This is where you would preserve some perishable consumptions that you can’t finish using at a go. It’s even economical and time saving. Your wife won’t have to be visiting market every little time you need these spices. It could be meat or fish, it could be pepper, vegetables and fruits.
You would all agree with me that this is one electronic gadget that every young man should budget for before bringing a woman in.
One affordable machine that cannot but be on this list is a generator. A small size generator, (I better pass my neighbour) isn’t too much for a young man to have at home before involving another woman in his life.
You don’t want your newly wedded wife to be visiting the neighbours anyhow to charge her phone when the electricity power supply company starts with their own thing.
She may have a little work to do on the computer system at home, she will need an alternative power supply. You might have a TV programme you want to watch, all you need do is switch on to your generator if power company isn’t coming forth.
Which other way can one enjoy his marriage if necessary needs like this can’t be easily provided for with little sum?
This gadget is another affordable house appliances that a young man is supposed to have. A loving man that want a smooth marriage experience for his wife shouldn’t see it a big deal to have microwave in the corner of his kitchen.
You wouldn’t want your woman to light up the gas cooker everytime you request for your already prepared food.
As much as there is power supply, all she needs do is to connect the microwave to a socket and switch it on to warm your food or any other consumable you’ve once preserved in the freezer for a quick use.
5. WASHING MACHINE
This last on the must-have gadget list is optional. If you can afford it, good. If you can’t afford it in the beginning it’s OK. But you must have it at the back of your mind that this is one machine your wife deserves. But the time you welcome the first baby, washing of cloths becomes more often and a serious job.
If you don’t want to be placed on a time table roaster of cloth washing, please do the needful in due time, please. Lols.
If there is a young man planning a marriage and he has not gotten at least 3 gadgets out the ones mentioned above here, such a person is not ready for a marriage yet.
We must be very serious with the crusade that having Television set, Home theater system etc is becoming old fashion and it simply means almost not having anything set ready at home for the new wife.
Honestly, without the above mentioned gadgets it would be unjust for any man to start thinking of bringing any woman into his burden. He should deal with some of his responsibilities first.
