A young woman ready for marriage has narrated how her fiance has given her an ultimatum to get married now or forget about it after she suggested they wait for COVID-19 to be over.
The bride-to-be, whose name has not been disclosed, described the situation to Tima Kumkum, who is the host of the popular Late Night Chat Show on Hitz FM.
According to the lady, she explained to her fiance that her friends and many other people need to be present for her wedding and that would not be possible with the current social gathering protocols in Ghana.
See post below:
It would be recalled that since March 16, 2020, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo declared a ban on social gatherings with more than 25 attendees, in a bid to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus in Ghana.
In reply to the fiance's request, the groom-to-be fumed up, saying that the lady has chosen to prioritize the celebrations and accolades that come with weddings over the bond they would share forever.
For that matter, he decided to gave her the option to let them marry amid the ban on social gatherings or completely forget about the wedding even after COVID-19 is over.
Some people have been stating their views on the matter.
Daavi Enyonam asked the lady whether she is getting married to her friends or the husband, in a bid to tell her to focus on her man.
Ikeson Qwameson Buckson asked the woman to be serious for once and choose marriage over wedding ceremony:
Belinda Tetteh asked the young bride what she would do if, after the marriage, the man is limited in finances due to their expenditure on the wedding:
In another interesting report by YEN.com.gh, the last survivor of the transatlantic slave trade has been finally identified in the person of Matilda McCrear, years after the belief that the last person was Redoshi Smith.
According to the BBC, a researcher at the Newcastle University called Hannah Durkin, previously indicated that the last of the survivors was Redoshi Smith who was captured in Africa in the 19th Century and brought to the US. But further works have revealed she was not the last to die.
Redoshi Smith died in 1937 and Hannah Durkin has now found out that a woman named Matilda McCrear who was also enslaved had lived until three years after 1937.
