Polygamy: Lady urges Nigerian Women to Go For Court Marriage
- Yul Edochie: Things You Should Know About a Court Wedding - Anthonio Umerah
A Nigerian lady has waded into the current waves surrounding the marriage of actor Yul Edochie as he unveiled his second wife and child.
Anthonio Umerah said on her Twitter handle that assuming Yul and his wife held a court wedding, he could have been sued.
She wrote about the benefits of getting married in the court;
1. PROTECTION AGAINST BIGAMY: If you are wedded in court, your partner is not allowed to marry another person unless they get a proper divorce. Unlike traditional weddings, you can marry the number of wives you like. BIGAMY is a serious crime, and it is punishable with 5 years imprisonment. Your partner must get a proper divorce before he or she is allowed to marry someone else!
2. FAMILY PROTECTION: here in Nigeria, there are so many families that always throw a woman with her children out of her husband’s house and take over their properties immediately after the man dies.
This abominable act does not happen if you do a court wedding. If you love your wife and children, you should consider a court wedding to protect them.
3. LESS STRESSFUL, FASTER AND LESS EXPENSIVE: If you are a financially struggling man, you should consider a court marriage because it is cheaper to fund, and it eliminates all the dress code and asoebi expenses. It is also very faster and less stressful.
4. RELOCATION: court wedding certificate is the most acceptable marriage certificate when you want to relocate abroad or need to show proof of your marriage in big organisations.
5. DIVORCE: most people marry happily with no intentions for separation, but sometimes some things or disagreements can lead to separation, and this is the part that scares most Nigeria men because they are afraid the woman might swindle them when divorce happens, with the process of payment of alimony and child support.
This shouldn’t be something to fear. If you are rich and afraid of a woman or man swindling you, you both should sign a prenuptial agreement. This prenuptial agreement protects your assets in the event of divorce or death.
This prenuptial agreement is created by the couple before they get married, which will state how they want to manage their assets during a marriage or in the event of death or divorce. Most rich people do not marry without signing a prenuptial agreement now.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
