Congrats on your forthcoming wedding.
Please keep living where you are already living now.

You don't need an apartment in your early stage of marriage maybe till you start having kids unless you want to impress your wife and her family in which case is an unfortunate faulty start.

Move her to stay with your family so they can bring out the wife in her.

Most of today's ladies are ill-trained and you need her to bond with your family because you don't want a wife who'd never visit your people if you are unfortunate to die before her.

Please don't rent more than 2 bedroom. Too many bedrooms brings unnecessary visits from in-laws, families and friends.

Room + parlour self con is alright. Trust me. If there's budget

Make you no go do Wetin go make body dey pepper you and room be so full

At least it would be OK to even get 1 or 2 children, while you start building your O own house if possible

Shey if you wife wan change cloth, you go beg visitors to go outside ni

Two bedroom cos...

1. Your mother in law, your mum or any family member will come around to assist in caring for your baby. You don't want them sleeping in the parlour, it's not right.

2. Your wife will give birth to your first child shortly after so you'll need the extra room.

3. Before you know it, your infant will become a toddler. You don't want to be doing kerewa while your child is asleep. It's a NO-NO.

If you're on a low budget, then your option is mini flat. In that case:

- Try to get a thick mattress to be put in the sitting room. Your guest shouldn't be made to sleep on a sofa. Also get a mosquito net that fits the mattress. ( Guest's comfortability is of utmost importance)

Note: never ever ffuckkk in the same bed your child sleeps in. Ahn ahn..you can do it in the parlour or even in the kitchen. Let the sleeping child sleep in peace pliz.

At times it amazes me the kind of question people ask here.Oga the best is to build your own mansion if you must know. Instead of you to rent a house according to your finance,you are here asking question.

you see say you be joker. 2 bedroom with agreement and agent fee in a place like ikotun is like over 380 to 420k. Furnishing if you have properties in your old house before will be like 150k. If you are coming from your parents house 500k will go to furnishing. Lets always be realistic and truth ful. Unless your wife and both families get sense 1m can't do wedding. Igbo list is over 500k self

I know 3 persons that wedded between last year July and March this year and they spent #800k #1m and #1.3m for everything you get for the wedding.

As for rent, it depends on your taste and area (ikotun is #400k (+ag/comm) for 2bdr
Egbeda 420
iyana ipaja 400
agege 450
onipani 500
maryland 600
abule egba 350

I'm talking fact here from 1st hand knowledge.
