Ghanaian actor John Dumelo has shared his first photo on social media as a married man.
In the photo, John Dumelo is seen behind a glass desk writing on a piece of paper. He captioned the photo 'Dear God', suggesting that he was writing a video.
The photo which has interestingly got a lot of attention on social media since it was posted.
The interest, however, is not just about the photo but for the fact John Dumelo was spotted without his wedding ring.
As a freshly married person, many on social media are questioning why John Dumelo is not wearing his ring.
@nhenhefreedom asked "My brother thought u got married just a couple of days ago... Where's the ring on Ur finger"
@lovelandmartey also asked "Were is ur weddin ring?"
@sylakorah thought it was too early for John Dumelo to be working "What are u doing there go back to the house ur honeymoon Isn't over"
@queening_shevy came to the defence of John Dumelo saying, "Those asking for his ring..Stop showing your ignorance and dumbness here, it’s engagement and with tht the man is not spotted with a ring. Wait for the registration or wedding. And, what’s even your business where his ring is?
But @elicia.amev came to point out that"this thing me i don't get it oo. What engaged? The person is married (traditionally), some people don't even consider that as marriage. When the whites get engaged, it is not marriage, its like asking for the lady's hand in marriage. I think there should be a law which makes it mandatory to register traditional marriage. If u don't wear gown, you are not considered "Mrs", what's that? They are both married! Just engaged for where?"
John Dumelo married his girlfriend Gifty Mawunya Nkornu at a traditional marriage ceremony on May 12, 2018 but the couple are yet to announce any plans for a white wedding.
As things stand now, their union is recognised as a customary marriage which means John Dumelo can marry more than one.
Also, customary marriage is not typically characterised by a man wearing a ring.
