Would You Let Your Parents Choose Whom You Will Marry?

I have seen so many parents trying to make choices for their children when it comes to marriage. Would you allow your parents to make these choices?

Yes! Yes!! But on one condition. The lady would be sleeping with them and not me. Very simple.

Not a chance.

I wouldn't even entertain the idea of my parents suggesting who I should marry.

If they'll choose for me that means they'll fall in love for me.

They give me the necessary advice and steps to take and not choose for me.

my parents would not choose a partner for me but they'd certainly have a say in my choice, cos i need their advice to go all the way

OH HELL NO, i remember when i came back to naija early this year, my dad wanted to intoduce me to this guy, but i told him it wasn't his decision, i am the one who is going to live with the man forever so why let someone else pick him for me. That is a no go area.

Its not the right of parents but that of the children to chose who they would like to spend the rest of their lives with. Na your papa wan sleep with am or na your mama? Who will cope with their bad or even evil habits?

So the choice remains that of the child
