Trending video has captured the moment a white woman, Angela K Deem, declined to vow “to obey” her Nigerian husband to-be, during their wedding in Nigeria.
Angela K. Deem of 90 Day Fiancé, a Caucasian woman whose lovely relationship with Nigerian man, Michael Ilesanmi, has been publicized on the reality show 90 Day Fiancé, was emotional when Michael said his vows to her at the Minister’s instruction.
In the video that went viral on social media, the white woman spotted wiping away her tears as Michael vowed never to place any other woman above her.
But, when it was her turn, she wasn’t comfortable with making certain wedding vows.
“Obey what, and obey who?”, Angela questioned as the Officiating Minister read out the vows and asked her to repeat after him that she will “love and obey” Michael during their marriage.
Michael tried to make her understand the vow but when he heard “obey what and obey who?”, he immediately bowed his head in shame.
After a moment of suspense and tension, Angela suddenly laughed mysteriously and repeated the part that says “to love and”, but swallowed the part that says “…and obey my husband”, while the officiating minister continued with the wedding vows.
People reacted on social media as they revealed that the man could have married her for benefit purposes. Some comments implies that it could be for acquisition of “green card”.
A social media user, @Joy Amoke while commenting on a particular Facebook group wrote… “How can she vow to love and obey a man she obviously feeds, clothes and houses?”
