Congrats on your forthcoming wedding.
Please keep living were 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.


Move her to live with your family? So you want your family to train your wife?

What a warped way of thinking.......

na matter of reality. That is why many guys cant marry. Court wedding no pass 50k plus small refreshment 20k. But many parents no go gree

If parents won't free let them sponsor the wedding na. Don't go and carry gbese for people that have enjoyed their lives and married at a far lesser cost. You have a lot ahead of you.

Where I'm planning to get the apartment (Alapere, Ketu)

Room+parlour self (300-400k -1st year)

2 bedroom flat (550-700k- 1st year)

I just need good advice. Thanks

300k is too much for mini flat for ketu, oga I don't believe your quote. 200-250k is ideal.

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
that's one bedroom flat right.
Re: What Apartment Is Best For A Newly Wedded Couple? by mechanics(m): 4:09pm On Sep 29, 2019
One bedroom flat is okay for a start, as time goes on, you will build yours and move from there.

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 knew 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. You can do it in the parlour or even in the kitchen





aunty calm down its just a baby grin grin naa ur type go tell hubby to off light & close his eye just becos u wan strip grin grin. what of those parent that lives in a room with grown children. dey fvck @nite we children just pretend to see & hear nothing.

I stayed in 1-bedroom (mini) flat after wedding.
Because, most importantly , I wanted to discourage overnight visitors as much as possible. We needed quality bonding time together at least first year before the baby comes.

Although even if I had gotten a 2-bedroom flat, I would use one as store room.
If you have gotten more than enough wedding gifts, you will surely need a place to put away some stuff while still keeping your flat neat and decent. My luck was that the upstairs flat I got, I am the sole user of the staircase and under the staircase is enough room for stuff

Damn!! You are living in a very bad environment and you need a very serious education,your mentality is digusting and I pray someone treat your daughter the way you wish others
Re: What Apartment Is Best For A Newly Wedded Couple? by bee4un: 4:17pm On Sep 29, 2019
It also mean that your blood sister's husband will move her to his family to bring the wife in her.

When your daughter is married to a man, the man will send her to his mother/family to bring out the wife in her, which means that you and your wife did not train her well.

Mind your advice to people.

Please before renting the house make sure you look at the Calibre of people living in the house and do not go for more than a room self contain or a room and a parlour self contain for start depend on what you have. Let your wife know that her taste should not be ajebo type for now because you need to start planning ahead of your family. And finally the moment you are married,you should start planning when and how you will have your own house somewhere even if you will not be living there for now. If you rent a house with more than a room remember family members will be coming to stay with you wilhich is not advisable for start. hunnnnnnnn well God will help you.

A stadium size hall would ok to start with.
Re: What Apartment Is Best For A Newly Wedded Couple? by Nyceguy92: 4:33pm On Sep 29, 2019
Bros, your question sounds a bit redundant as few people have said. It's all in your pocket.

However, here is my take:

As a married man, you and your wife will need some privacy plus you definitely cannot do away with visitors, be they family or friends.

You need at least a bedroom and a sitting room space with separate toilet/ bath, and kitchen.

When you have kids and your mother in-law comes, you can comfortably sleep in the sitting room while she sleeps in the bedroom with your wife and baby.

One bedroom ensuite is so squashed for both of you. Do not even go there.

A 2-bedroom flat will be super comfortable but only if you have the money.

Some with self contain
Some with Room and parlour self contain
Some with 2,3,4 bedroom flats
Others with duplexes.
Some with their personal building.

Cut your coat according to your size!

If you can afford a two bedroom flat, it's okay.

Mini flat is ok too, but in a matter of a year or two, you will be talking of getting additional rooms. So based on your question, a two bedroom is fine.

But if I were to suggest to you, I'll suggest you remain in your current apartment, get a piece of land at a place of your choice and develop your building. Then you'll have all the comfort you ever need
Goodluck and happy married life in advance
