Bride’s Family Cancels Marriage Moments After Lobola Ceremony After Discovering Son-In-Law Is Not A Virgin
In a shocking turn of events, a Mutasa couple’s dreams of marriage was shattered within minutes of their marriage ceremony soon after the bride’s family discovered that the groom was not a virgin.
Groom Fails Virginity Test
Prince Stefano, a 30-year-old resident of Mandeya Village, believed he had found the love of his life in 21-year-old Chiedza Mudzedze. Having paid a bride price of US$345, he thought their path to matrimony was set. However, the couple’s joy was short-lived when the truth about Stefano’s virginity came to light.
Groom’s Money Down the Drain
Heartbroken and filled with sorrow, Stefano was struggling to accept the unexpected and shocking turn of events. He felt deep anguish over the money he had spent, which now seemed wasted. In his own words, he said, “I paid US$345 as the bride price, as communicated to me. However, they demanded US$800 during the ceremony, which I couldn’t afford.” His lamentations revealed the financial burden that had been unexpectedly placed upon him.
Bride’s Family Speaks Out
According to Manicapost, Chiedza’s family confirmed their refusal to give their blessing to the marriage due to Stefano’s non-virgin status. Chiedza defended her family’s stance, asserting her own value and worth as a virgin bride. “I am worth more than US$345. I deserve someone who has never been with another woman,” she declared. Adding fuel to the fire, Chiedza’s sister criticized Stefano’s disrespectful attire during the lobola ceremony. His choice of ripped jeans, work-suit jacket, and crocs left a sour taste in their mouths, intensifying their disapproval. Moreover, the lack of groceries brought by Stefano’s family further strained the already fragile situation.
