Nigerian man who claimed he met and married his wife in 7 days might have lied

Wonders shall never end!

Not quite long ago, we reported the story of a couple who claimed that they met on Facebook and got married six days after a Facebook proposal.

The story went viral and its nature created doubts in the minds of many people. According to the story, the man, Chidimma, posted an advert on 30 December, 2017 asking any woman interested in being his wife to reply. He also said he was ready to tie the nuptials knots on 6 January, 2018.

He wrote:

” Am of age and I am ready to say I do and am wasting no time. “Send in your applications – the most qualified will be married on January 6, 2018. Application closes 12 midnight, 31/12/2017.”

In an interview with BBC, the couple had claimed that they talked on Facebook for a while and they met each other after planning a date in Enugu. They both claimed the meeting had happened after the man shared his marriage proposal on Facebook.

Reports that surfaced showed that the couple might have lied about the alleged proposal and how they met on social media. Photos of the newlyweds out on a date days before the alleged proposal date which was on Saturday, December 30, have surfaced.

The photos were shared on Instagram after it was discovered that the two lovebirds had gone on a date on Sunday, December 3.

This is not funny at all!

If this couple actually lied about their meeting on Facebook and getting married six days after, that’s quite deceptive and a slap on people’s intelligence!

It also sends a very wrong signal to the youth.

Marriage is serious business and should not be trivialized. It’s quite obvious that social media has made it possible for people to have variety of choices in meeting their potential spouses.

However, due-diligence is still necessary before one finally commits to a relationship as serious as marriage to avoid stories that touch!
