Nigerian lady says man supposed to take his wife’s surname, claims nit’s in the bible (VIDEO)


Nigerian lady sparked controversy on social media as she claims that a man is supposed to adopt his wife’s surname when they get married, a statement that is supported by the bible.

In a now-viral video on the internet, she said that the scriptures clearly told men to leave their parents, ‘cleave unto their wives’.

According to her, the man is supposed to totally leave everything that has to do with his father and mother including their name, and take his wife’s last name.

She quoted Genesis 2:24 which reads;

“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”

She said people shy away from addressing the fact because it does not suit the narrative that men keep pushing, which is that the wife should be the one to change her surname.

She added that if a woman wants to continue with her own surname or take her husband’s last name then she should be allowed to do so.

Her words:

“The bible says you are are supposed to leave your father and your mother and everything that has to do with them, including their name and cleave to your wife, which suggests that you should adopt your wife’s last name and not the other way round.”
