It is often heartwarming to hear that a couple have tied the knot after dating for along time.
Under normal circumstances, dating is supposed to lead marriage if the couple involved so wishes.
But in recent times, it is common to hear that after a long time of dating, a couple have separated, though they all may be interested in getting married.
Indeed, it is not far-fetched to say that, for every successful dating and marrying story you hear these days, there is equally a dating and breaking up story to match.
So when dating, one should know that it is not a guarantee to marriage as many factors may end up not making them realise that dream.
YEN.com.gh has asked for the views of guys on Facebook as to what may be holding them from marrying the ladies they are currently dating.
The responses showed a variety of reasons why guys are not going ahead to marry their current partners.
Some had issues with the faithfulness of the girlfriends and wanted better explanation like Papa Bless
Robert had similar issues but wanted to punish her for being unfaithful by marrying a different lady.
There were some who said they were being held because of tribalism.
But for most of the respondents, it all boiled to financial reasons.
For Benjamin, the list of items for the traditional ceremony was too much
And Quench seemed to agreed.
Boris says he is still waiting for money to marry her.
It was the same with Godfred.
And Ato too
Nana Kwabena just cannot cater for her right now .
Seth felt all the other reasons apart from the financial reasons, were just a beat abou the bush
