A young lady is begging parents to consider reducing the marriage list and bride price so men who love them and are willing to spend the rest of their lives with them can be motivated and marry them.
The issue of the marriage list and the high cost of bride price has been a matter of concern to many men in our society.
Some find it difficult to marry because of the cost of buying marriage items and the extravagant amount being charged by some parents.
According to the unidentified Ghanaian lady, some men do go for the marriage list from the parents of their fiancées but do run Away after checking the cost of the items and the Bride Price as a result, it affects the ladies who are also in love with these men.
“Parents, I Beg You To Reduce Marriage list, Bride Price To Motivate Men To Marry Us”, she said in a viral video.
She added that she is pleading with parents to reduce the marriage list and bride price because, now the world is hard, getting money is not an easy thing and the economy is very hard for everyone so how do the parents who charged higher bride prices want their potential husbands to get the money from.
“We have been staying home for too long, reduced it so they can marry us” – she added.
Below are some reactions from Instagram users;

@kojo_sanction: Marriage seff over Ghanaian men so madam pls shift make we pass .. A Ghanaian woman will show U her real character after getting married to her.”
@joey.the.badmon: “We sef we don’t want to marry anymorebecause the risks outweighs the benefits. There’s a risk that comes with marriage that essentially benefits only a woman! A man marries you and can only hope one day you don’t wake up and say, “I feel like I don’t love you anymore and I wanna leave and you can’t do anything bout it!”
