He wrote to us under a relationship segment that Kudakwashe Muguta is seeking advice from Zimbabweans as his girlfriend says she wants them to tie the knot as early as February 2021, but he doesn’t think he’s financially buoyant about catering for a family.
A working-class man who believes he is not financially stable enough to get married has shared the dilemma he is in, following his girlfriend’s request for them to settle down soonest.
While revealing that he earns RTGS 17 000 per month, and stating that he doesn’t think it will cater for her bride price alone, he also expressed fears that he might lose her to another man.
He wrote: “My GF and I have been dragging this marriage matter for 7 months now. She says I’m not serious and I don’t want to marry her. I’ve been trying my best. I work for a delivery company and my salary is RTGS 17 000.
“My GF wants us to marry by February 2021.
“Currently I’m living with my brother because my office is close to his place. “If I move out and marry, how do I start a family with 17k rtgs and get my own place. “My GF does not have a job. She wants to start to make up the business.
“Should I marry her or break up because she said she can not enter 2021 singles? I am under so much pressure. I am losing weight currently. I don’t even know how I will pay her the lobola price if I agree.”
Muguta is appealing for professional help on what to do.
