A couple in Malaysia were forced by their parents to throw a lavish and expensive wedding, and they took a loan of RM40,000 (SGD$11,927) to do so.
6 months into their marriage and after their wedding, the couple is now struggling to repay the loan that they took out for the extravagant wedding.
A woman shared her confession on the Emosi Twitter page and said that she had been crying because of this instead of enjoying her marital bliss.
She said that it all started when she and her husband took a loan for their wedding and that they are working ordinary jobs as a contract worker and a clerk respectively.
The couple had wanted to have a small wedding with about 100 people, but her parents said that they have many relatives who would be offended if they didn’t invite them.
Her husband (then fiance) then spoke to her parents and they told him that they wanted to invite about 1,000 people and want the wedding to be held at a hotel.
They then suggested the couple take a personal loan for the wedding, which her husband then did so to fulfil her parents’ wishes.
But they are now struggling to repay the loan and are working extra jobs just to pay it back, with her husband working as a food delivery person after he returns home from work.
The woman is also doing online dropshipping to earn some extra money to pay back the loan, and they are regretting taking the loan for the wedding and bowing down to their parents’ pressure.
