Men who cry at their weddings have psycho tendencies – Nigerian lady
She had responded:
“I have a theory about men who cry at their weddings.
There’s nothing intellectual about the theory. I just think they have the tendency to be psychos. Don’t ask me why, I don’t know, but I believe it wholeheartedly.” She wrote.

Her assertion actually reminded us of a story in India in 2018 where a man had cried his heart out at a wedding he was forced to partake in.
In a report by Gulf News, the man, who was kidnapped so he could be forcibly married off, cried bitterly as women performed wedding rituals overseen by an array of guns to his head.
These nuptials are known in local parlance as ‘Pakadua Vivah’ or forcible marriage. Families who want to get well-settled grooms for their daughters, but cannot meet the demands of dowry abduct boys.
Vinod Kumar, a junior engineer with Bokaro Steel Plant, a Government of India enterprise, had gone to attend the wedding of his friend in Nalanda district recently when he was kidnapped by a group of men.
Kumar was dragged to the wedding rituals and thrashed there. As he wailed, women used their saris to wipe his tears.
“We are only performing your wedding, not hanging you. Why are you crying loudly? Shut up,” the girl’s relative is heard telling the groom in a video.
Kumar said he didn’t cooperate because he hadn’t got the consent of his parents. They then held guns to his temple.
“They (the girl’s family) befriended me during the wedding and asked me to step out. They kidnapped me and took me to a home where I was forced to put vermillion in the hair of a girl. I had never seen her and I don’t know who she is,” Kumar said.
