She said they were preparing for introduction and she recommended he rents a Venza which he will drive to see her parents for the rites.
According to the 26-year-old woman, he has a Toyota Matrix but she does not like the car so she she thought that he would have made more money and bought a new one before the D-Day.

She wrote; “I want to know if it’s wrong to ask my fiancée to rent a car before coming for my introduction. He has a car but it’s Toyota matrix. He gave me but I didn’t collect it cos I don’t like it. I thought he was going to hustle to get us a new one before the intro. He is working, So i made inquiries for (rental) Venza.
It’s 100k for 24hrs which is a bit reasonable. already made deposit from the money he gave me for cooking of food for intro and my clothes. He sent this “I am done” is this how men make hasty decisions? I am 26 years old, waiting for service.”
