- A young man has expressed shock at the marriage list his wife's family gave him
- The man identified as Mmadu Marcellinus shared images of the listed items and asked if he should still go ahead with the marriage
- Surprisingly, many thought the listed items were not expensive compared to what was obtainable in other Igbo communities
A disheartened Igbo man has taken to social media to express his displeasure at the nature of the marriage list his in-law had given him.
The Imo state indigene, in a Facebook post, said he had out of surprise questioned if the list was authentic.
He went on to ask his Facebook friends whether or not he should go on with the marriage plans.
Sharing photos of the list, he wrote:
"See list that i collected yesterday from my inlaw house I was like is this for real please Do I still continue or stop please ehime mbano people why."
Interestingly, many stated that the list was cheap and a far cry from what is the norm in other Igbo communities. Others slammed him for complaining and said he wasn't ready to cater for his wife if he can't meet up with the required items.
Hon Nwachukwu Charles Chinonso said:
"Stop acting like a kid n do the needful, must you tell the world everything about yourself
"And who told you is mandatory that you must do all the things listed there....."
Nwogu Kelechi thought:
"You have acted as if you are been forced to marry.
"Why not share your picture when dedicating?
"My brother, that girl you have been collecting one round from, the depreciation has reduced drastically and make a move to acquire her wholly."
