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.

[size=18pt]This is a sign of the changing times. Nsukka used to be the cheapest place from where to marry from. Infact, in some communities there banned festive marriage ceremonies just so the groom can afford the cost. For example, some families get fined if the music coming from your compound during your daughter's marriage ceremony is heard in the next compound. However, most families have caught on to the exorbitant marriage ceremonies that are characteristic of most towns in Imo state. I cam also guess that the groom is not from Nsukka, hence the list. A typical Nsukka man will walk away from it all if you present a list to his family. The items needed are usually so short that a list is not needed. [/size]

The girl that is stupidd enough to get impregnated before her dowry is paid is definitely cheap. So yes, you got your worth.

500k is considered okay shebi...Why not put it in a more clearer terms that your daughter is for sale, then we will understand.

People be generalizing and judging people easily. The fact that this people demanded much from your friend doesn't mean that's how Nsukka people are.
A sensible man ought to know that he is not selling his daughter but fulfilling the scriptures. Permit me to say that this man is insensible, he wants to use your friend as a stepping stone. I'm from Nsukka.
Conclusion - no be every Nsukka people dey collect 500k. I have a friend her dad collected 20 naira from his in-laws, he told them to take care of his daughter and it's OK for him.

Guys this bride prize of a thing is relative, even when they bring a list of N1million its the negotiation skills of your most senior uncle that ll count and im speaking from experience. When I wanted to wed my Akwa Ibom sweetheart, the list they brought was even worse than the one of Nsukka but when my senior uncles finished the negotiation process they eliminated a lot of things on the list and saved me close to N300k. My advise to the OP is to go and meet the lady's people with very experienced elderly ones from his side cause they sure know how to deal with themselves. During negotiation the bridegroom will not even utter a single word. Funny enough, the bulk of what they collected from me was spent back on my wife in form of gifts

But on a more serious note, Igbo law-makers and their governors should start passing laws that will criminalize any expenditure demanded from a bride-to-be's parent above 100k.
I concur. Because with the way things are going now, most of their girls will have to marry themselves. Most of the igbo guys i know in my area here in Delta are now getting married to the locals down here, becos to them, they would rather invest such money in their business than spending it on some long throat family accross the bridge.

The cost of marrying in Nsukka is one of the cheapest in Igboland. But unfortunately, your friend is marrying into a very greedy family.. That wants to use the marriage to solve all their problems

Gracious10:
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.

Re: If You Don't Have 500,000naira, You CANT Marry From Nsukka (pic Proof) by MrSocrate(m): 5:33pm On Nov 21, 2015
OP,what do you gain from this blackmail? So what you are saying is that on average,every Nsukka youth ( ie a potential husband) worth #1m ? Which part of Nsukka are u talking about?bcoz am frm Nsukka. Marriage in Nsukka is highly negotiable, you can marry Nsukka girl with any amount ok so dont blackmail us and pls dont discourage those that wish to marry from Nsukka . I have sisters who married with my parents blessings at a cost less than 100k and some yet to marry,so if you want an elaborate wedding or marriage celebration that one na your cup of tea. But for Nsukka people, we are neither cheap nor expensive. It depends on how the suitor wants it. You can contact me to lead you if u hav interest in marrying from Nsukka, guys pls dnt mind the OP.

This is very considerate. They have costed the party and the traditional things you need to present. If you were to marry from some other places like the south west, the party which no one will cost for you will take far more than this.

In yoruba land its the brides family that handles almost everything though

bride price in most places depends on the family. I know of a nsukka man that took only 60 naira for bride price of his daughter, so its not a general thing, if u look at that list u would see its a community in nsk and not the whole nsk
