Not only would marrying a westerner give a local the opportunity to become more financially stable, but also the ability to pursue career talents not possible in Ghana.
It made perfect sense, and gave me a different outlook on the “annoying marriage proposals” I had been receiving during my trip. I encountered one incident during my trip that was troubling.
There’s more to marriage proposals in Ghana than just what’s been stated above.
As any westerner that has visited the country has seen, it’s not uncommon to receive marriage proposals from locals every few days.
It’s like I’m watching a real life version of , only instead of going to an ambient restaurant or having a fun experiential date the setting is the mall food court. Also, why the hell would anyone propose at the mall, let along in the food court?! “Please explain to me what just happened here.” He laughs, as he’s aware of the big deal that goes into American wedding proposals and the length of time people in the U. After that it’s seen as taking advantage of the friendship.” Wow.
I can’t help thinking to myself that, unlike American men (and women) who propose maybe one to three times in their lives, Ghanaians must propose dozens.
Suddenly, amongst the chaos, my ears pick up on something strange.
Fried chicken shops and overpriced pizza joints interspersed between fine dining restaurants and smoothie stores.
From there, the groom’s parents will send the bride’s parents a pot of palm wine to thank them if there has been consent. If a man wants to marry a woman, he’ll start giving her gifts — for instance, money, handkerchiefs and towels.
And if she accepts the gifts, this means she’s also accepting the proposal.
While by nature local men don’t feel the need to wait years to propose to a girl as is typical in many western countries, they also see tourists as an opportunity.
While Ghana is a beautiful country with a mountain- and waterfall-filled landscape, upbeat music adding positivity to the streets, and gorgeous handmade textiles in bold patterns, there is also a lot of government corruption and poverty.
