If you impregnate a lady as a guy in most Igbo part of this country without paying her bride price, you already know the child belongs to the girl’s family and not yours as the guy

I love the ịgbo culture so much. If you impregnate a lady as a guy in most Igbo part of this country without paying her bride price, you already know the child belongs to the girl’s family and not yours as the guy.

Let me rephrase; I hope you know in Igbo land, if you impregnate a lady and she gives birth without you paying her bride price, even if you later marry her, the child she gave birth to before you paid her bride price isn’t yours. hope you know?

We start counting your legitimate children from the ones she birthed after you paid her bride price. Except her parents wants to pity you by giving you the child. By right, it’s not your child.

I said let me notify you incase you don’t know how the culture works

I always laugh whenever I see people fighting over custody of children they didn’t pay any kobo on the lady that birthed the child as bride price. Culture dey Sha. If na my side you kon drag Pikin wey you no pay bride price for the girl head ehhh, your front teeth for don loss. Yes, you can’t win anywhere no matter your money and connection.

For some of you, your father,  mother and some of you wouldn’t have been in the family they are in today. But, because they didn’t pay their mother’s bride price, the girl’s family decided to keep them as their own. It’s a common practice in ịgbo Land, especially Anambra State.

That’s why you see people rushing to pay bride price once they are aware that the lady is pregnant because if she born  when you no pay, nothing for you. In some places, they won’t accept the girl’s bride price once they notice the girl is pregnant. Meaning double loss for you.

I am always shock to hear some tribes give out the children despite when nothing was paid on the woman’s head to the man that got her pregnant. Well, everybody with their culture Sha
