Germany-based Ghanaian, Miriam Venson, remains single due to her mother's demand for a €4,000 (GH¢49,000) fee from any prospective suitor.
Miriam disclosed this during an interview, explaining that her mother insists on this payment to cover the cost of bringing her to Europe.
Miriam and her siblings had to pay their mother after moving to Germany, leading to disagreements and eventual separation from her family.
“My siblings and I left her house because her demands and rules were too much. We could not live by her rules. She kept telling us to marry rich men since they would pay the cost involved in bringing us to Germany. I am still single because we do not agree with her opinion.”
"The €4000 is a different amount from the traditional bride price. It is my father who will provide the bride price list but the potential partner must pay my mother first. She does not care if he has a residence permit or not,” Miriam added.
As a result, Miriam and her siblings, who share the same predicament, are still single, highlighting the challenges they face due to these demands.
“I paid €7000 to my mum for bringing me to Germany. She said she would labour to bring us abroad for someone to enjoy the results of her hardwork. She claims she does not want us to look cheap.”
Miriam said she once brought a man home, but her mother rescheduled the marriage ceremony because the would-be partner had not paid the stated amount. She added that the man finally left after waiting for too long.
