We don't want her to suffer
A young Nigerian lady with the Facebook name Maryam Shetty went online to narrate how a wedding was called off. She revealed that before the wedding was cancelled, the bride’s parents felt that the groom’s house does not befit their child’s status.
According to Maryam, the parents said that they would not want their daughter to go and suffer in such an environment.
To remedy the situation, the bride’s family offered to give them a new house; an offer the groom emphatically refused.
Maryam said that the groom is not poor as he is a very educated person with a good job.
