"Dear Pulse,

I love the way your readers contribute to issues raised by people on this platform and I know my own will not be different.

My name is Vivian Ikechi, a 38-year-old lady looking forward to walking down the aisle before the end of this year.

I am a contractor with several oil companies in the country and I must say that I make good money from my businesses.

I have two buildings in Abuja where I live, I own several properties around places like Lagos, Port Harcourt and my home state, Imo.

I know age is not on my side and I am doing everything to get my boyfriend who is five years younger than me to do the right thing as I want to settle down and have my own babies before menopause sets in.

Bryan has proposed marriage but he wants me to sponsor the wedding if I am really serious about us getting married.

I know I can easily do it but won't that be a show of desperation? Some friends have told me that he would not respect me if I take up total responsibility for the wedding, despite the fact that he has a very good job with an oil firm (I got him the connection by the way).

Do you think it is good for a woman to sponsor her wedding?



Dear readers, how would you advise Vivian? On Morning Teaser today, we ask: is it wrong for a woman to single handedly sponsor her wedding?
