Some Uninvited Women Attend Weddings Every Weekend Looking and Hoping For a Husband?

Posted in: , ,

A friend of mine got wedded a few weeks ago and since I couldn't make it to the wedding, I paid her a brief visit earlier today. I met her unwrapping her wedding gifts and the inscription on one of the gifts caught my attention. It read thus;

"Dear Bride & Groom, you do not know me, neither do i know you, i wasn't even invited to your wedding but i came, i hope you dont mind? I am a lady in her prime, hoping to meet and be joined to my better half just like you two. I attend weddings every week and join couples to celebrate hoping that luck would shine on me too someday. My gift may not be worth much but i want you to know that it is from the bottom of my heart, please accept it and say a sincere prayer from your hearts for me. Congratulations and Happy married life!" 

These were NOT her exact words though, i just paraphrased but this was the basic content. I don't know what you think of this trend?


  1. Bizarre! But I fear these women may just be mesmerized by a wedding and not marriage.

  2. I think such people are trying to tap into what they consider a blessing for one can also come to another. But sincerely, looking for a life-time spouse may need more than that.

  3. Gulp. I rest my case. Did he/she really have to announce himself/herself?

  4. The way some women consider marriage in Nigeria is quite disturbing. I see the same mentality on blogs. Tapping into wedding anointing and all the BS.

  5. I think it's more like a social meeting point for them. They probably also show up uninvited at naming ceremonies and burials too

  6. Wow, its one thing to actually show up hoping to snag a boo, but really? You don't have to jump up and announce it to the world lol.
