My husband has refused to help my family members bcos he paid N580K bride price to marry me

A Nigerian Lady Identified as Elohor Okudu narrates how her husband has refused to help her own family members after paying almost N580k as bride Price to marry her.

The story was shared by a twitter user identified as @SmartAtuadi, the lady is seeking professional advice as the issue bothers her.

She Wrote: “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 traditional 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 as I wasnt working and I couldn’t help financially. After marriage I suggested that he should be sending something monthly to my parents as he does send to his parents too, but to my surprise the reply he gave me was that he didn’t owe my parents anything that they have collected all they are entitled to. 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 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 2 years of courting.

“Please our mummies and daddies, kindly advise me on what to do to save the situation, I am in between my husband and my family”.

  1. You are wicked. You guys wants to kill him? That’s how you put pressure on men till they go and commit crime for money. He is not responsible for contributing to your family. Only voluntary support is expected from him.

  2. Just hold on to your husband, he just want you thats why he raised the money, and Marry You. And now he dont need your parent but you and you re here showing your anger to him

  3. Why must your husband contribute 120k for ur brother’s marriage? Do your brother contributed any amount during you’re marriage? Please better free that man from the stressed of unnecessary demand. He owed your family no financial obligations but they can only benefit from his kind gestures, you’re husband is your number priority u have but not ur so called drillers’ family. At this point choose one side to follow, I advice you….!

  4. You and your parents are selfish and are not been reasonable, he’s earning 70k and you want him to support your brother with 120k from where he should go and steal? Pls don’t put pressure on this young man he has not recover from the 580k he paid for bride price, focus and stick to your husband on building your own family and leave your parents or brother alone

  5. I didn’t know reason why our parent always give us problem, because of one day enjoyment. You better face ur husband before he run!!!
