A Twitter user identified by her handle as @purpleandflawed narrates how her relative cancelled a wedding with her fiance after the man refused to join her in taking an infidelity oath.
According to the cybernaut, the duo had initially agreed not to participate in the oath taking, only for the man to tell his fiancee that his people insist that they partake in the usual ritual.
The lady accepted to take the oath only on the condition that he joins her in it, the man refused and the lady consequently called off the wedding.
The tweet reads:
“So apparently, in my community after the traditional rites and you perform this ritual. Your husband or wife runs mad if they cheat. Last month, my relative called of her wedding, previously discussed with her fiancée and they both agreed they won’t perform that rites.
Few weeks to the wedding, he said his people insists that the rites most be done. The girl said that the only condition is that same thing will be done for him and they both will be guided it. He refused and she called of the marriage.
It was very annoying cos I was amongst the first person to buy my asoebi and my Mum took it upon herself to talk about this issue to everybody that cares to listen. In her words “ Umunwanyi Kita nwere Obi”. Each time she says this, she looks at me.
