A family has made headlines after canceling their daughter’s wedding, by chasing away the abroad-based boyfriend.
The unexpected decision was made in response to the fiancé’s refusal to invite the girl’s family to see him abroad before his wedding.
They had asked that her boyfriend send her an invitation to join him in Europe before their December wedding, according to @T_nsofor on Twitter.

The abroad-based boyfriend had already arranged for the lady to resign from her work, obtain a passport, and prepare to relocate with her fiancé following the wedding.
The parents, on the other hand, believed it was critical to follow the Igbo practice of probing and questioning before the marriage. Despite his parents’ insistence, the fiancé was hesitant to send the invitation.
Nsofor wrote; “Around January, this girl got engaged, and did an introduction, her fiancé lives in Europe and the plan was a December wedding this year.
“He asked her to quit her job, get a passport & start preparing to move with him after the wedding. Her parents told him to send her an invite so that she could see the situation of things where he lives before the wedding and that they would sponsor the trip.
“He has been reluctant and making excuses to do this. he came back to Nigeria Last week and went to her parents for wedding plans and they chased him away.”
“I believe that the Igbo tradition of investigating and asking questions before the marriage and 2 different types of visits done before the marriage to the groom’s family or wherever she will be living after the marriage is very important and helpful with modern marriages.”
