Human Angle - The Seven Shades of a Nigerian Wedding
A wedding ceremony is a want, not a need because no law makes it mandatory for a wedding ceremony to hold. It is important to note that a wedding ceremony does not add extra value to a marriage.
It is mainly the Nigerian culture and upbringing that makes not having a wedding ceremony look like a crime. Nevertheless, having a befitting wedding ceremony is possible and can be achieved within a reasonable budget.
The extended family in Nigeria typically sets the path of a couple's marital prosperity or unintended disaster; it all depends on whether a couple's wedding becomes an event it is and fits into an affordable life plan or whether the wedding turns into the crowning glory of the marriage. Where the wedding becomes the height of marriage, the rest of the marital journey becomes a sinkhole for financial stability and joy.
This edition of the Human Angle anchored by Taiwo Adeoti discusses the seven shades of Weddings as it relates to Finance.
