A Twitter influencer took to the platform to narrate how the mother of her Igbo boyfriend of 2 years, crashed their plan of getting married.
According to @dearolaa, her prospective mother-in-law’s attitude changed when she realized she is a Yoruba girl and she reportedly told her to her face that she can’t marry her son because she doesn’t like Yoruba people.
@dearolaa further revealed that her boyfriend’s mother recently called her parents and warned that she should stay off her son. She also shared anguish of not knowing where she stands as her boyfriend has been in the village for a week.
My name is Adeolar and I’ve been in a very serious relationship with an Igbo guy. He’s nice, handsome and we’ve been dating for 2 years. He talked about me meeting his family and I was very excited little did I know that it would turn out to be my worse nightmare.
I met his mum and she seemed really nice, but her attitude changed when she realized I’m a Yoruba girl. She immediately told me to my face that I can’t marry her son. Her reasons weren’t clearly stated but she said she doesn’t like the Yoruba people. My heart melted, hot tears rolled down from my eyes; I’m Yoruba and I’m in love with an Igbo “mummy’s boy”.
I spoke with him about it and he keeps assuring me that it would be fine. It’s been almost 2 years now and the family are still not in support of our union. Every time I try to move on he comes begging that everything would be fine and that we will get married. I really love this guy, why I love him I don’t know because clearly he hasn’t done anything to deserve my heart but… He doesn’t have a good paying job yet, so I carter for most of his financial needs and even send some food to his village during festivity.
Just recently his mother called my parents to tell them that I can’t get married to her son and asked that I should be warned to stay off her son. He has travelled to his village for a week now and honestly I don’t know where I stand… I really love him but what do I do?
Good morning lovers. This is my story.
