I’m 32 and my girlfriend

wants us to get married.

I keep telling her that I don’t have

money for lobola, but she doesn’t

understand. What can I do?

Sis Naledi answers:

Never get into a marriage because

someone else is putting

you under pressure to do so.

You need to be ready to commit.

You have to be financially stable to

maintain a healthy marriage.
