A young lady has lamented the cost of conducting traditional weddings in Igbo societies, narrating how her new husband and she were left at the mercy of creditors after their traditional wedding last month.
The lady, who identified herself as Nkiruka Akpovili narrated her ordeal on Facebook.
She wrote: 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.
