Whenever I see topics like this,I really get angry cos all I see is greed and pure extortion all in the name of marriage and the annoying part is that these ladies are not speaking out against it yet they are the ones suffering from being long over due for marriage.
Why will someone present such list knowing fully well that thats pure extortion.
What's the competition about? Or what are they trying to prove? If you are asking for such amount on a marital relationship, are still expecting the groom to invest in the girls family, ? People don't understand that good things don't end but how u start such a relationship determines if you still continue to benefit from that marital relationship.
So if they are paid huge amount of money now and the man refuses to help any member of that family in future, will he be blamed? I say NO! Greedy people are so short sighted that they think of now instead of the future.
What's the lady in question bring to the table in this marriage? Is she financially buoyant to contribute to this marriage if things fall apart? Because coughing out 500,000 to 2 million in one single event is staggering, it's not for the middle class, it's for the rich especially in Nigeria.

Where the man has enough to pay out of honesty not some foolish ego, he can do that.
Marriage is not when the parents start dreaming of using the money to purchase a land, show off to neighbors, but a time to pray for the success of that marriage who knows that's where the lifting starts. Reasonable in-laws are priceless, they command respect even in their poor state because they are not clouded by greed but ruled by principles.

Ladies, that the man didn't pay millions of naira doesn't mean he won't treat you right. Don't be a tool to financial bondage of your would be husband. Know his pocket size and help start your home on financial freedom. Nobody wants a debtor as husband where you hide your head in shame when people disrespects your husband. Help him keep his head above water.

Speak out against bride price extortion, it doesn't help.
I am igbo by the way so I know what am saying.

Dalu.

Any man that willingly sacrifice these goodies at the expense of his suffering and struggling family deserves to be beaten publicly.



I will never sacrifice this for any family in the name of marriage. It is not about being broke, it is about teaching a greedy and gluttonous family how to be considerate and loving.


I'm not buying a wife for crying out loud. I'm simply marrying a wife.

Funny thing is, most of these girls aren't virgins. Did her first man paid anything to the family?

I'd advise the girl to write a proposal soliciting fund from her ex and campus boyfriends in order to pay her family.

Assuming she had s exed 6 boyfriends on campus, they all should pay N80k each, then give the money to the new husband to pay her family OFF.
CASE CLOSED!

May God bless your Generation

I expect people who have gone through the process of marriage to come and talk if they ever regret spending the money


Stop burying your head in the sand. You haven't exactly given a reason why the exorbitant dowry thing shouldn't be scrapped. Of course, most people who have paid through their nose to get married won't say evil things about the practise but that doesn't make it good either. Deep down, they know the truth. First thing you should accept is that not everyone will have that kind of money to pay. And even if they do, they'll rather put it into good use that will ensure that they and their wives don't live a miserable life after the wedding. After all, wedding is just a day while marriage lasts a lifetime.

Besides, people who don't have millions in their bank accounts deserve to marry too, don't they?

Then because you brought 1 million Naira to spend on marriage festivities, you think you have earned the right to get an invoice or bill of sale?

If I were to sell them as slaves, I wouldn't accept 20 million Naira for them. So stop feeling like you are entitled because you sent some lousy sum on a Traditional wedding ceremony.

This poor in spirit mentality is not something to be proud of.

If the girl is worth it, I will drop a stack on it. Jacob for bible do house boy for 14 years to pay for ehn wife bride price. 500k and you dey make noise. angry

Don't for any reason Generalise whatever your friend went through to be a reflection of a people. One may ask why am sounding this way. My younger was married out recently and I can tell you its never so. So, whatever you meet as u search for life partner, may God give you all the strength. It's well with your friend who needs success and has gone to NSUKKA my humble place. Our women are humble and many are well brought up.

OK...It happened that I 'escorted' this friend of mine to Nsukka in ENUGU STATE to go meet the parents and the family of the girl he wants to settle down with. We were asked to come back the next day for 'The List'. Shaa, to cut the long story short, we returned the next day, and I was like WTF!!

Not that am vexed at NSK people for the high price/cost of getting married to their girls; BUT my anger is that this particular girl that my friend wants to marry is even yet to graduate from her school (a poly) and she's not even fine grin. So on what basis should the list be that high?

Also, what on earth will these guys do with the 50Gallons (NOT 50Gallon o, but Gallons) of palm-wine and 100 tubers of BIG yams that they asked my friend to bring??


NOTE: Cost of wedding no dey the list o! probably after the traditional and white wedding, the couple will resort to eating sand.

I won't! They have all been intimidated and brainwashed into believing it is the right thing, most especially, the primitive ones. It is time to fight for gender equality. Well, I can't marry from a backward family that still believes in some primitive traditions though. Ptui!
