Abstract

This paper addresses the phenomenon of husband wife in a marriage. It describes the husband wife experience as one in which a wife plays the role of the husband in a role-reversal situation. It examines the socio-psychological challenges which the husband wife experience poses to the institution of marriage, pointing out that the situation simply reduces the male partner in the marriage to a househusband. While identifying the conditions which could engender the husband wife situation such as job loss, sickness or lack of education, the paper recommends that marriages should be contracted on the foundation of strong moral principles which engender moral respect for both partners in the marriage.
