Ghanaian actor Prince David Osei has spoken against the idea that women should be allowed to bear the cost of a wedding as he believes that such a thing robs a man of his dignity.
“The thing about marriage is that people don’t want to be committed for their entire lives so it’s a very difficult situation. Most often, men tend to be laid back, you know they love you they’ve been with you, but just to say the words, ‘I want to marry you, will you marry me?’ is a bit tough,” he said on Accra based Joy FM.
When the issue of the woman paying for the wedding, Prince said, “there’s a lot wrong with that.”
“The man is the one taking someone from her parents’ home and bringing to your house, so you should be responsible, you should be ready.”
“…sometimes it takes your dignity away as a man.”
