When I was schooling in Bayero university, kano. My roomy said his grand pa told him that the reason while their marriages fail(no albarka) is cos what they collect from the groom is too outrageous that he is so sad.... Emphasis is laid on 5start wedding this days bt not on it's survival....

Go pet section and see how much some dogs cost.... 500k and u are complaining ?

are we now comparing brides to dogs don't get it, a dog's offspring can be sold and earn more cash it's an investment can't say the same for the other (offspring).

NOTE: In other not to be confused am not saying brides are useless am only saying using cost of Pets as an analogy fails because when a Pets gives birth the babies can be sold thus earning back the person additional money obviously u can't sell your babies (it's possible but ideally and morally it's not)

shocked shocked this is serious... No wonder an edo guy fell in love with an ibo guy both living abroad and the huy knowing edo marriage ia not that expensive went ahead and asked for list from the ibo girls parents... O'boy you go fear list as e almost reach 2million. Na so the guy paranoid quit rlship sharp sharp go him town go marry and start another building with the remaining change as a sign of remembrance.... It was after his marriage that the ibo parents called him that they can amend the list butit was already late because omo guy was enjoying his honeymoon..... Till date 7years back, the girl is still single..... No matter how wealthy a man is, is better they invest on physical things to show than making mouth on how much they spent on a mere wedding
man, i wish this was the first to comment post. What a wasted time on a girl's future.

Most communities in Nsukka do not give list for marriage rites. OP, u didn't mention where in Nsukka. Are u sure it was Nsukka u went to with ur friend?

Finally... Maybe its not even Nsukka they went to. Or the family they went to is very very poor and the nigga went there and was forming Oga boss so they decided to get their slice of the national cake grin grin grin

If he has the money, fine. if not, they should consider and reduce it.

No reason 10 gallons of palmie and 20 yam tubers should not suffice.

Hian! Shebi you people said the price is outrageous so you're buying the girl So you ma give birth to many girls and sell them when the time comes. I'm sure its gonna be a lucrative business lipsrsealed

Its a big lie. I am from Nsukka and i was present when the bride price of my cousin was paid. The groom was asked to pay 10000 naira in cash. 2k was returned by her father back our inlaw. So this generalization is quite annoying.

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.

U deserve 3 bottles of orijin on my head


Acidosis:
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!

Nsukka women are quiet expensive for real. I was there for almost 21years. The truth is that the OP over estimated the amount. Before you get a wife in Nsukka, you will rush and pay her bride price immediately she is writing WAEC. After her exam more strong hang will show interest. Most young guys find it hard to marry their heart desire in Nsukka because big men no just dey give young guys chance to have girlfriend. Its only place the level of boyfriend and girlfriend is very minimal. If you wan follow my friend younger sister chat dey go tell you say one hand dey hold am. That go mek you comot your hand
