It is widely believed that a woman should be a help meet to her man. Assisting him to bear whatever burden he faces in life, and seeing him through difficult times.

In as much as her assistance is needed, what happens where the burden he bears turns out to be her own bride price? Should she help out with that? Or is that the man's sole responsibility?

The bride price, also known as the bride token, is an amount of money or property or wealth paid by the groom or his family to the parents of the bride.

In some African countries, the amount a groom pays as bride price depends on the tribe, culture and the parents of the bride. Should the groom or his family be unable to pay the amount requested by the fiancée’s parents.

A lot of people have differing opinions on this issue, let us know what you think.
