When you finally find a man you know you would like to marry, please, go to your parents with him. Plead and explain to your parents that you just want your wedding, church or court whichever one you chose, Add your own money and join hands with your fiance and do the wedding you both can afford or love.
Make sure you have a focus, a vision, a purpose to be alive.
101% of igbo married women are constantly reminded in their homes about this dowry and marriage expenses. Every day, women are still looking for the men to return their dowries and so many are frustrated. Fights and arguments will be there every now and then and you will be reminded of this same thing that you are now saying it meant nothing.
This is a hard pill to chew I know, but this singular act will protect you women from this slavery act and the dowry perception.
The introduction of spouses to their relatives shouldn't have a price tag. Marrying a woman or man shouldn't have a price tag. My Wonders, the consequences are GRAVE!
MOST MARRIED WOMEN WON'T TELL YOU THIS BECAUSE THEY ARE ASHAMED, DON'T WORRY THEY KNOW WHAT COCO WONDER IS TALKING ABOUT.
