By Nairaland Forum Good evening Nairalanders, a friend of mine came to me for an advise.
My friend is in his late 30s, he has been in a relationship with his woman, they have been together for a period of 8 years, and they have 2 kids together.
This my friend has a younger brother, the younger brother told him that they should go and collect traditional marriage list from his woman family, so that traditional marriage can take place by December.
My friend worry is that, one, he is not financially capable to do traditional marriage rite as of now and secondly, he doesn’t have a good paying job now.
Another of his worry is that, he feels it shameful for his younger brother to sponsor his wedding, he is afraid won’t he be insulted in the future by people, that he can’t not pay his wife bride price, that it was somebody that married his wife for him. His brother told him not to worry about the financial responsibilities, that God will take control.
My advice for him was that he should tell his brother to give him the money to go start
a business, maybe when the business balances, he can go and do the marriage rite. But his brother told him that the lady has tired for waiting for 8 years, that they should do the traditional marriage first, every other thing shall fall in place. This his brother has been supportive to him.
Nairalanders please what’s you take on this? Read More
