It has been a year since my traditional wedding and I write this with mostly good feelings. I am grateful that my marriage has been uneventful in a good peaceful way and that we didn’t have issues with adjustments of living with each other, personality clashes etc. I pretty much don’t have any horror stories to trade- if anything maybe funny ones.
Life has thrown a few interesting curve balls, but for the better part I am grateful. I told my husband – we have many good things in our lives and home – maybe with the exception of crazy money which I believe will come sooner or later.
We still don’t have a wedding album- I am responsible for this- so I have promised him by the 2nd year we should have one. Lol.
I love my husband and my marriage- one thing I wouldn’t have done in hindsight is a traditional wedding. While I didn’t foot the bill, the money could have been put to far better use. I keep asking myself what the relevance of this particular event is especially after a family introduction. Can the bride price not be paid at the introduction or formal (white) wedding? In Lagos where you will easily expend N5 million at a minimum for a decent event, are these things worth it? For starters I know fully well I don’t know 1200 people, My husband doesnt either…so who invited them? Anyway some pix for your enjoyment
Please share your thoughts on this- if you are married did you have an engagement / traditional wedding? How do you feel about it? If you aren’t married what are your thoughts? Will just one event do?
