Have you checked your Bride Price?

Lol, I thought to just share this hilarity that is Bride Price.com. If you don't know, a bride price is what your intending husband and his family are supposed to "pay" your father before you get married. The bride price amount is set by cultural traditions, but these days, it depends on the bride's parents and extended family. Some people ask for fabric, goats, etc (like for my wedding), and others ask for cars, power generators and what-have-you (thieves, I call them).

Anyways, some funny people decided to create a website to calculate your bride price, and my result was




There are advantages to being tall, or having light skin, gap teeth, cooking skills, American citizenship, etc. Hehe, have fun with it and tell me in the comments what YOUR bride price is.

  4. Hah! This is surely entertaining. Mine was NGN 709,000.00. Babe! Your bride price is going to cause a war in this our Africa. What I find interesting is that the "price addition" for having a masters degree is high while having a doctorate causes the price to drop. Uh!
    I am sometimes ambivalent about the issue of bride price. I appreciate that it is a cultural thing, but I don't appreciate what it represents for me as a woman.

    1. Your doctorate means that you're too intelligent, and of course, no man wants a too intelligent wife.

      Hehe, I always joke about bride price - it wasn't paid in full, here's your refund, can we do exchanges, layaways, etc. It made sense traditionally, because a man was taking another man's worker (bride) away from his house, and so he needed to pay the equal value for the work.

      Ah well, it was funny.

  5. It is funny sha. Mine is NGN 457,500.00. I am vexed that there's no option for business owners and self-employed under the employment part. Are the saying young ladies don't usually own businesses?

    Anyway, the app is really innovative.

    1. Alas, I put neutral for accent, cos it's nowhere near American - not unless I turn it on, and even then it's Nigerican. People are so lying! The highest anyone can get is N1,020,000.
