Love makes us do crazy things.
A woman took to social media to ask for advice on how she can make her jobless fiance – who just proposed – to look more acceptable to her loaded parents.
I just need to seek opinions before I make this choice .
I love my boyfriend till death ,we have been together for 5 years and he just proposed to me few days ago. My problem is that he is jobless and did not go to school,he just finished secondary school and has been learning a trade but the trade don’t always work out. He has served different people but they always refuse to settle him. I have been managing with him with with my little resource as a student. Am the only child and my parents provide everything for me. He is also the first son out of 8 children.Now that he has proposed I don’t know how to tell my parents he is jobless, I don’t know how to package him to be accepted by my parents . I have saved up to 700k, so am thinking of giving it to him to go see my parents and run the ceremony. My friends think am stupid but I love him so much because he is so caring and loving . He worships the ground I walk on,he carries me like an egg,I can’t just explain it but he is just a perfect man for any woman . Please family I need your advise on how to handle this . Am 25 years and in my final years so am ripe for married.”
One online user gave a very strongly worded piece of advice to the damsel.
He wrote, “Yeah, I think you are definitely stupid plus you have no idea what it means to love to the death. Give him the money to start up a business not to blow on a stupid ceremony No one cares for. If he succeeds in his new business then he’s a keeper if not, you got your answer right there.”
How can she be helped?
