No please. It is Ourculture. I rather we handle it like my village does. We ask you to bring #10,000 and it most be cash. So when the groom brings it, they make sure to collect as low as #30. They will ask you to use the rest to take care of your wife. ItsOurheritage – @TreasureChinwe3
Funny enough no body talks about the cost of white wedding, what exactly is the issue people have with tradition and culture? What is the hate for? Oooooh – @KKekeocha
Many people (villages) in Igbo land have different understanding of what bride price represents. According to my people, bride price is not the value of a woman paid in sum, but an allegiance of unity, signifying oneness of both families. My Dad collect N10 as bride price. – @UtchayMillion
They should scrap bride price culture, it’s unhealthy, and it perpetuates the “I paid for your head” statement guys always use. Why are you paying for a human being? – @Omonomose_
