He borrowed money from two major sources and kept his hopes in the fact that guests who attended the wedding would give him money, but he was disappointed when they came with gifts which they sold off for N62k to settle debts.

The shop he rented for his wife has become empty because they could not afford to restock it as every penny they get goes into settling debt or feeding.

@IrunmoleWeil further revealed that the husband earns N120k and by the time his office deducts a fixed fee to repay his loan, he takes home just N70k.

"I did my wedding with less than 50k and it was okay, only traditional."


"This is what happens when 2 financially unintelligent people marry. A wedding ceremony isn't an investment. People prolly don't care after that day. Now, where's the wife's mum that pushed for the loud wedding?"
