Why Do Nigerians Prefer To Marry The Rich? by luvablesam(m): 9:57am On Dec 22, 2012
I called up a friend recently to tell him I was getting married, guess what he did.
He SCREAMED n then asked me who I was getting married to as follows;

HE: Who are her Parents, are they rich?
Me: Why are you asking?,
HIM: Just want to know cos if they aren't then you have messed up big time, seriously guy you no try .

I was shocked, though that's the harsh reality these days, no or very few guys want to marry girls from humble backgrounds.

Same goes for ladies too, if theirs even isn't more pronounced. Like a friend once said 'perceived ugly girls get married every weekend while the ones that think themselves beautiful buy "Aso ebi or anko" to attend such occasions hoping to meet Dangote's sons.

My question now is that what is happening to our value system, what's your take on everyone targeting the rich for marriage and who marries the average or seemingly poor?

People A̶̲̥̅я̲̅é̸ now having a myopic views about marriage, vision and money. Nowadays τ̲̅ђe women folks no longer believe i̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ their creative ability of being able to fend for themselves but rather they see themselves as a parasite, waiting for somebody to take them to walt Disney without them doing anything to contribute to τ̲̅ђe journey.

I'm from a very humble background or should I say poor? Yea poor sounds like it, "humble" just makes it bearable, Lol, ok. But rich guys keep coming for me, and no one has ever cared about my family's financial/social status. In fact, that's the first thing I tell them, I'm always like "dear, don't let my looks deceive you, I'm from a very humble background o." I'm Vivian, and that should be enough!
So contrary to your opinion, majority of guys don't actually care.

A lot of ladies who have misplaced their priorities actually care about how rich a guy is before they consider him and I just pity them. I just hope they realize that the life of a man is a mystery. A man's life can change in a twinkle of an eye.

I'm friends with a lot of people who at one time couldn't even afford a decent meal, but just one phone call changed their lives for best, and vice versa.

Last year, I did a job for this couple that had no house. The groom is my friend and as at then the most valuable property he had was his laptop. In fact, when he told me he was getting married I was like "are u crazy?" Cos he didn't even have a house. Few weeks to the wedding someone gave them a room in his flat and they were squatting there. Whenever I went to the house to discuss their wedding I was always like "how could this girl get married to a man that doesn't have a house?" Honestly, I couldn't understand, I couldn't even think of myself doing it. Well, their marriage is a year old and they are now living in one of the beautifully furnished houses I have ever seen.

Stories like this humble me, and I of all the things I have seen in my few years on earth, I have known that riches cannot be guaranteed. I have also known that life is a mystery.

So if you fall in love with someone from a rich background good, if you fall in love with someone from a humble background good too. Marrying a rich person is not a crime, marrying a poor person is not a crime either, provided that LOVE is the driving force.

This is intellectually overwhelming, especially coming from a lady (Nigerian). I thought, we have all lost it, our believe, personal believe driven by desire for innate and uncompromising happiness not for today but for tomorrow. Come to think of it, the mainstream of most marriages now is built on 'all that glitter is golden', but at the end you find out that 'not all that glitters are gold', hence broken and battered unions and homes.

i assume the "females" who make it a point of duty to show up in religion section regularly in order to curse their forefathers, will be wooed and married by the atheists, satanists and/or muslims there?

just asking, hope they're not believing God for a godfearing SO because stranger things do happen.

Yea, you are absolutely right. That is why you should see to it that your girl child/children is/are given a solid foundation morally. I usually tell people that a lady's personality is 80% dependent on the kind of family she was raised in. We all have our roots!
The earlier parents start teaching their children, especially their girls that there is no short cut to life the better for all of us! You want good life huh? Then you must work for it! Things get tough? Sit your azz down and deal with it! Above all, teach them to be contented with what they have, and the only way you can achieve this is leading by example.

So yea, it a huge problem but talking alone can't fix it!

There are good girls out there, they might not be saints but they are good, they understand how life works, they understand the difference between realities and fantasies/fairy tales. I pray you encounter one.

The nice family gatherings and other social events...everyday some idi.ot is complaining about buying BIS and airtime, what makes u think u will be able to keep up wit what ur wife's family is used to angry so u think those wealthy families want u to bring ur rural mothers to their gatherings angry spoil everything for them and embarrass them in front of our pple in their social class

In most cases, the major problems marrying these poor ladies are their parents, especially their mothers. They specifically make the daughters understand that they shud not bring home a man who will not cater for the whole family. Damn! It is irritating.

I dear to differ on materialistic mums raising materialistic daughter.
I have lived a situation where the daughters of a materialstic mum withstood their own mum for their younger sister's marriage.
Their mum was like the guy coming for her younger daughter does not measure up,but these older daughters of hers confronted & resisted all her demands.Today that guy is her in-law,thanks to her daughters.
