“ House Rent Is A Man’s Responsibility. Nigerian Lady Wants To Call Off Engagement After Fiance Suggests Sharing Payment Of House Rent’
A Nigerian bride-to-be is considering calling it to quit with her fiancé after he suggested they’ll share financial responsibilities once they are married.
According to her, they intend to get married soon and have been discussing certain things about their marriage.
She revealed that her fiancé told her that at some point after they tie the knot, he may request financial assistance from her to pay their rent.
She wasn’t comfortable with this idea as she believes responsibilities like paying house rent should be solely her husband’s. This, however, made her reconsider settling down with him and plans to end their relationship.
In her words:
”Please I just want to know what people think. I’ve been talking with a guy for a few days now, we met and decided to have a relationship that’ll hopefully be leading to marriage later this year because that’s what we want.
”I’m a 9-5 worker, we were talking on the phone this morning and he advised that I think of business, I said yes I already have that in mind for future when kids come, moreover there’s no enough money now and I don’t really have the time cos of work, that’s not the issue but the statement he made was that.
“He doesn’t need to ask me but maybe in the future he can ask me to please support with some money for our house rent”, in my mind I’m already having an issue with that statement, does it mean he has plans of asking me to contribute for house rent?
”Did he really mean that or I overreacting? I wanted to call him back and clarify but just decided to send this to hear what people think because I can’t be with a man that will be extorting from me as I currently need someone that can support me too, I’m not stingy, I will be doing my own little things but I won’t accept contributing to house rent bill because it’s the man’s responsibility. I want a responsible man that can cater for a family while me a wife supports sometimes or once in a while”.
