dats only when you are employed in good companies.. And since its so hard to come by good jobs here.. Its difficult for families to afford hospital bills..


Most times I tell myself I won't even want to marry a Nigerian.. I just picture myself relocating to a more civilised country where the government has regard for her citizens

If you live in your own apartment and your workplace isn't too far, you can. But your wife has to be understanding too.

Yes and no...
Yes if you are staying in a relatively remote area where cost of living is low to a reasonable level. Though there are downsides to that.

No if you plan to start your family in Lagos and other Metros, that salary won't even transport you for a month.

Certificate is just a paper, go and learn a handwork for your owm good...
Nobody want to learn handwork , it's just to sit one place and be cracking brain....at d end they will pay u any amount....they want.
Just a question if evreybody becomes an engineer to draw plan, who are going to do the hand work i.e both the plumbery work, electrician and other building work which is d main work in d building, na to just dey one place without stress dey collect money with ac na im evreybody want.

I can't just help but laugh after going through the comments here, most of the people commenting here are probably still in school and are still been cater for by there parents so they know little about marriage, what is the minimum wage in Nigeria? "18,000". Let me use teacher's as an example there are some states where they pay teacher's less than 50,000 and they still went ahead to marry and enroll there kids in private school's, to the OP you will not remain on that salary scale for life my advice to you is if the lady is the understanding type please go ahead and marry her.

As long as you don't reproduce yet.

Every child deserves the best; Nutrition, healthcare, education, clothing etc and these are not cheap at all!

so don't bring an innocent child to suffer until your finances have improved.


Don't bring an innocent child to be drinking acamu without milk cos SMA gold is expensive!

Don't bring an innocent child to attend jelosimi primary school because Daystar school is expensive.

One thing you can never be sure of is; wether you would be have more money tomorrow or you will fall off favor of money, you can only hope, and be positive about that tomorrow. so, YES YOU CAN!
you've to let go of fear and disbelief, and know that you can.
look beyound the money, look into yourself, look into your partner if all you see is "greater-tomorrow and greater-together", then ,by all means marry.
marriage is not necessary about how much you earn.

You just got the job right? There's no need to rush into marriage yet.
Being the Head of a family and its breadwinner is not child's play but a very big responsibility.
If you truly love each other, then you would be patient.
In the meantime, both parties should work hard individually and have enough savings.
In the next couple of years you can get married and settle down.
