A story of a Nigerian lady who says her husband refused to help her parents and any member of her family has gone viral after it was shared on twitter.
According to the lady identified as Elohor Okudu, her husband paid N580K for her bride price when he was still earning N70K as salary and months later, refused to help members of her family because her husband feels they milked him.
The story was shared by a twitter user identified as @SmartAtuadi, the lady is seeking a professional advice as the issue bothers her.
In her words;
“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 Money bag 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.
