Advice about Bridewealth?

Post by michael.stewart1 » Thu Jul 19, 2018 2:02 am

Other than not getting married at all. ( I figure this would be advice many will offer) how do I protect my investment in the case that she decides not to go through with the marriage?

What's the investment? Bride wealth usually pays for the wedding, and weddings often turn a profit.


If you want someone to cook for you and wipe your arse while you're playing WoW, hire a maid.

Don't forget the other 'in the case' that.... she does go thru the marriage and then leaves you.

As the one famous guy said "if you want to glide with the parashoot you have to jump". Make the best to protect you self. But end of the day you have to jump. If works fine if doesnt work nothing you can do right. Move on.

Looks like he uped his game quite a bit, to the next level in no time thanks to CEO. Now he is learning how to get scammed by a hooker.
