580K Bride Price OnoBello

If you’ve been in the Nigerian twitter space, you must have come across the trending story of a man who allegedly was made to pay 580k as bride price before he could marry his wife, this excluding all of the other traditional and white wedding expenses.

His wife who took to Twitter to narrate the story asking for advice and guide, said ever since he did this he has refused to give her family money, both allowances, nor give any financial support of any kind saying he owes the girl’s family nothing again financially in his life.

She further narrated that her own younger brother who also now want to get married was billed 400k to pay as bride price, her father has now apportioned 400k to the man to pay and he has refuted bitter and the jobless lady caught in-between the whole dilemma has taken to twitter to seek for advice.

Her statement read, “I got married 8months ago, my hubby earns 70k monthly while I am yet to get a job, during our wedding ceremony, hubby spent about 580k on the list given to him for the trad wedding, I persuaded my parents to reduce the list but they said it is a must and a tradition

He was able to raise the 💰 as I wasnt working and I couldn’t help financially. After marriage I suggested that he should be sending something monthly to my parent as he do send to his parent too, but to my surprise the reply he gave me was that he didn’t owe my parent anything…

..that they have collected all they are entitled to from him, initially I was not angry about that until my younger brother wanted to get married and his bride family gave him list of things for the traditional wedding which is amounted to 400k

My dad then shared the expenses and told my husband to contribute 120k towards my brother’s wedding but to my surprise, my husband said no and told me that my family has collected all they wanted during our wedding and they shouldn’t come to him for any financial assistance

…this got me angry and I told him that he is not responsible. Ever since then we have been living like strangers in the house, he doesn’t talk to me, he has just been keeping to himself, and I have never seen him this way before not even in our 2yrs of courting.

Please our mummies and daddies kindly advise me on what to do to savor the situation, I am in between my husband and my family. ~From Elohor Okudu~”

Twitter users have rendered their voices in advising this woman in the next cause of action.
