Delve into the core takeaways from the post Bride price not scripturally required for non-virgins – Reno Omokri in the sections that follow.
Reno Omokri, a former media aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, has said bride price is not “scripturally required” for non-virgins.
On his micro-blogging platform, X page, Omokri wrote, “You have absolutely no duty towards her family beyond ensuring that you look after her and her offspring with love and care as your primary duty. So long as you have paid her bride price (if she was a virgin when you married her, otherwise even bride price is not Scripturally required-Exodus 22:17), any insistence that you must also take care of your in-laws is bondage.”
He also claimed that men who “constantly look after in-laws as a matter of duty” are not irresponsible.
He maintained that men who look after their in-laws while ignoring their own parents are not “weak” but “wicked” no matter “the physical or spiritual excuses you use to justify your actions.”
He, however, added, “If your wife, out of her income, chooses to do so, don’t stop her. But also do not allow her to extend her father’s house to your house. If four of her siblings are in your home while none of yours are there, then you are the wife, and she is the husband.”
