Parents barred me from marrying my Igbo fiancée – Yoruba man opens up

A Yoruba man known as Komolafe has recounted how his plans to marry an Igbo girl was shattered due to tribal differences.

He said they were barred from getting married to each other by his lover’s parents after learning of his tribe.

According to the young man, his fiancee was flogged and harrassed because she insisted on going ahead with the marriage.

Komolafe who shared his story on Twitter said that his babe’s mother even called him several times to issue him warning to leave their daughter alone.

He said that after everything that happened, he and his girlfriend came to the conclusion that they cannot work so they decided to go their separate ways.

Komolafe also shared screenshots of a conversation on WhatsApp to backup his claim.

He wrote; “I was supposed to Marry an Igbo Lady, at d Mention of my tribe to her Dad, He vehemently refused. She did all she could, she was flogged, Harassed & ostracized by her fam. Her mum called several times to warn me, based on the fuss at home. We held on together amidst all d uproar.

But at a point, we both knew we can’t work & had to let go. Those were d worst time of my life as I couldn’t imagine letting go a woman I was sure I loved after my Grandma. In all of this, i wondered why d man hated my tribe so much. Now i know better & i am not angry anymore.”

Meanwhile, a newly married Nigerian woman is in a dilemma that sees her having a conflict of preference between her husband and ex-boyfriend.

She revealed that they got married last month and her ex just returned to her life ater earlier abandoning her with pregnancy.

The lady confessed that she still loves him and would not mind getting back together but the problem is her current marriage which is just a month old.

According to her, she does not want to hurt her husband who has done a lot for her and given her all she desires but her heart is still with the ex-lover.

She said; I need serious help… I got married last month to the man of my dreams, he is my long term friend. We reconnected and things worked out for us. We got married last December because he’s not based in Nigeria, he’s bases In the US, he’s a very good man,he loves me immensely, he provides for me,I never lacked anything since we met,he makes sure I’m good. He knows my family and accepted us the way we are he is caring, he is simply perfect. The issue is I don’t love him that much. I do pity him because sometimes I show it to him but I we can’t do anything about it.

I still have deep feelings for my ex who maltreated me so bad,abused me and showed me how bad love could be. After everything he has put me through I still love and have serious feelings for him. My ex got me pregnant a few times and whenever I inform him, he would ignore me after asking me to get rid of it. I lost my self esteem, he never cared about my feelings then. My well-being meant nothing to him. He cheated on me countless times and made me look like a fool. I saw hell while we were together.

The issue is after all he has done my heart still beats for him, a lot more than for the man I married. Recently my ex reached out and told me he had intentions of marrying me. He also said getting married to my husband in such short time meant I was cheating, I had never cheated on him for good 4years we were together I met my husband when he had started ignoring me because I told him I was pregnant.

He abandoned me for months then came back when I had already met my husband and we have fixed date for our wedding .I’m just so shattered I don’t know how to control my feelings over my ex I even messaged him yesterday but seriously I don’t like what’s going on now I just need help and advice. My ex is handsome, fair, tall and rich, my husband is handsome, dark, richer than my ex but he’s not very tall. Asides that, he is he’s a sweet man, I really want someone to help me please, I need advice.
