Nigerian man sparks debate after claiming “marriage is an escape from poverty for average women”
In a recent tweet that has stirred significant conversation, Nigerian man Raphael @Raphael shocker shared his belief that marriage has become a means for average Nigerian women to escape poverty.
His tweet read:
“Marriage these days for an average Nigerian woman is to escape poverty. Vet her very well kings. Too many baddies out there looking for the nice guy.”
his statement led to responses from people on the net, with some agreeing and others strongly disagreeing.
The topic has become a talking point, creating discussions on the gender roles prevalent in Nigerian society today.
While some argue that his views are a reflection of the harsh realities faced by many Nigerian women today, others agree that such a generalization is indeed true, and some argue that reducing marriage to a mere economic transaction down grades the importance of love, companionship, and marriage.
The conversation has shed light on the challenges faced by Nigerian women in their pursuit of financial stability and independence.
As the conversation continues, it is hoped that a more ideal understanding of marriage in Nigerian society will emerge, and hoping that gender equality and female empowerment will be promoted, so Nigerian women can thrive in all aspects of life without them depending on marriage.
