Bridal list are basically items listed by the family of the woman for the man or supposed husband to fullfil it’s requirment. A strange marriage list has found its way into the public space and has gotten a lot of people talking and asking questions on why some items were listed in the list for the ceremony.
The strange marriage list is allegedly coming from Apollo in the Western Region of Ghana but the family behind it is currently unknown. In the list, some items including Knocking fee which is GHC 500, Bridal Fee of about GHC 5000, Money for brother-in-law (2,000), cloth for the mother and father. Some cloths for the wife to be and other items.
However, what makes the list strange is about how some other items have been fixed in this particular marriage list. The strange things added to the list were;
money for coffin and a mortuary fee. It is unknown why the family added them but it appears new to many people.
The family has again added an amount of GHC 4,000 to the coffin whilst the mortuary fee is GHC 3,000.
The man is again supposed to buy twenty each of goats, guinea fowls, and sheep. Apart from that, he will present one hundred and fifty bags of cement and fifty tons of iron rods. The tall list also includes perming cream, shoes for ladies, spray, bags, slippers, and many others.
The family has stated under the list that the blessing of the marriage should be celebrated at Apollo but has cautioned the man to come for renegotiation in two weeks if he cannot afford all.
