Many Nigerians on social media have expressed concerns about a young couple who are set to be married in a few weeks.
The reaction followed after a public invitation was made by the groom on Facebook.
The groom named Nathaniel Caleb shared his pre-wedding photo with his young bride, Blessing Imasue with the caption; “Love is the only genuine principle from which a marriage with a difference can spring- And the heart of love is love from the heart. It was ordained from the foundation of the Celestial. Celebrate with us and be celebrated in Jesus name”
The wedding, which is slated for May 26th in Edo state, has so far generated mixed reactions, with some Nigerians on social media condemning the union, adding that the couple is just too young to be married.
