“Once a man pays your bride price, he has paid for your life” — Marriage counselor
Marriage counselor stirs reactions following claims that a woman’s life is tied to the bride price paid by her husband.
A relationship expert identified as Jane Chukwu on Facebook made the claim in a post while advising women on how to keep a marriage.
She argued that the payment of bride price by the man seals the complete ownership of his partners life, hence, the need for a woman to please her husband.
“Forget civilization and feminist brouhaha, when a man pays your bride price, he has automatically paid for your life and the life you live isn’t yours anymore, the life you now have is to please him and make him happy all the days of his life,” she wrote.
