"This guy knows my family asked if it would be okay for him to speak to my parents about marriage and I said no. I don’t have an interest in marrying him.
"He asked why and I have my reasons. He focused on the financial reason. I simply said we aren’t in the same financial place and I don’t think it’s fair on both of us.
"One, I don’t want to limit my lifestyle and he shouldn’t have to be pressured to earn more. It’s just unfair for both of us imo. He asked if I would give up my work for love and I said absolutely not. I explained I love my job, it’s something that brings me happiness and makes me who I am. It’s also part of my personal brand so it simply cannot go.
"He said my reasoning is not realistic. He gave me a range of his annual salary in cedis which was around GH¢2.4k to GH¢4.8k which is fine and I said that isn’t bad. That’s what he earns and good on him.
"I gave mine in cedis which is GH¢830k and he said I can’t earn more than my husband.
"I called him insecure and he said a man is suppose to be the provider and there is nothing insecure about that. So I told him to go and provide for someone within his bracket. He can’t provide for me so he said he will report me to my family.
"I don’t care if he reports me cause my family would legit laugh. The mentality alone is even madness. Why can’t I earn more and why would I give up that salary and work? He said women of now a days wants to be like men. Is this what Nigerian women deal with?"
Social media reactions
Chima Mmeje said:
"Today is another day to be astounded and gobsmacked by the audacity of men!"
"Not in the wrong, he sound like he's having a tantrum rather than acknowledge your very reasonable stance. You'd only end up resenting each other."
Ahof3 Patri added:
"Weird behaviour. You can’t meet me at level 10 then tell me to come down to level 5 and accommodate you."
