You do not need your husband's permission

Meanwhile, earlier reported that a lecturer in the UK, Dr Dipo Awojide, spoke on marriage and how the woman is independent in making a certain decision.

In a post on Thursday, March 31, he said that a husband's permission for a wife to go out whenever she wants to is not necessary.

He, however, added that the woman could inform the husband about her movement plans. The lecturer is of the opinion that such 'tradition' should be discouraged since the wife is not a teen.
