Wedding in Tears! “I’m Now a Debtor After My Traditional Wedding, We’re Now Broke” – Lady Cries Out Online

Following her experiences during her traditional wedding, a young lady is really angry about the cost of the traditional wedding as she reveals how very broke and indebted she and her husband are, at the moment. She is seriously blaming elders in Igboland for giving exorbitant list to men before marrying their daughters,a situation she says has put her and her husband in serious debt. She even says men are afraid to marry Igbo women because of expensive list of marriages rites, adding that she now understands why more Igbo women are baby mamas.

The Nigerian Facebook user identified as Nkiruka Akpovili, took to the social networking platform to rant about the cost of her traditional wedding as it has drained herself and her husband financially, to the point of being in debt.
Read what she wrote below…
I’m really angry and I must rant this rant……
I want to sincerely beg all igbo fathers here to pls stop the act of billing their daughters husbands to be just because they’re non igbos. It’s not fair at all because while they’re enjoying the money, their daughters are at the receiving end.
I’m of no doubt that some igbo ladies make good wives and all….my traditional wedding was last month and in all honesty, I now understand why most men marry igbo wives and subject them to suffering,i understand why most Igbo women are baby mamas instead of being the wives………. My husband is isoko and all his friends (igbos included )has vowed not get involved with any igbo lady.
I know some of my brothers and sisters would want to insult me, I know some of my friends here would want to inbox me to interrogate me, I don’t care because we’re back in Lagos, broke and for the first time in a long while, I’m now a debtor and can’t sleep or eat well.
