Going through the comments was more disturbing.

What do you think? Must the bride price be returned for a widow to be free? Is a widow forever bound to her late husband’s family?


In my opinion, No! You do not need permission from your late husband’s family to date again neither are you to pay back your bride price.

That’s totally ridiculous.

I will never succumb to such. Whoever you date is your private business. Funeral rites and all that is needed has been done.
You owe no one to continue living your life.


You need no permission at all. It’s your private life
