How our traditional wedding left my husband and I to nothing financially - Igbo lady laments

It is the culture of a particular tribe in Nigeria, where they siphon the groom as if they are indeed selling their daughters once and for all - this very culture has left an Igbo lady in an angry mood as she lamented that the cost of their traditional wedding has left herself and her husband to nothing financially, even to the point of debt.

She took to Facebook to make her annoyance known to the world and beg Igbo fathers to stop high billing of non Igbo indigenes, since it will automatically reflect on their daughters.

Read her post below;

“I’m really angry and I must rant this rant……

I want to sincerely beg all igbo fathers here to pls stop the act of billing their daughters husbands to be just because they’re non igbos. It’s not fair at all because while they’re enjoying the money, their daughters are at the receiving end.

I’m of no doubt that some igbo ladies make good wives and all….my traditional wedding was last month and in all honesty, I now understand why most men marry igbo wives and subject them to suffering,i understand why most Igbo women are baby mamas instead of being the wives………. My husband is isoko and all his friends (igbos included )has vowed not get involved with any igbo lady.

I know some of my brothers and sisters would want to insult me, I know some of my friends here would want to inbox me to interrogate me, I don’t care because we’re back in Lagos, broke and for the first time in a long while, I’m now a debtor and can’t sleep or eat well.”
