Facebook Selling Brides for $50

In the circle of people we know here at ReallyRight, are some gents, try as they might, just can’t seem to find the “right” girl. After hitting their mid-to-late 20’s, the selections dwindle. By the time men enter their 30’s, it’s just darn hard to find a women without the baggage that accompanies broken relationships.

Guys take heart, for your problems may be solved. No more do you need to rely on Grindr, Tindr, Retriever, Dogpatch, Match, or other websites. No, all you need a few simple items:
Your good ole Facebook account and “… (about $50), along with two goats, a pig and some yams.”

What a bargain. For the same price as a date to Ruth Chris’ Steakhouse and a bottle of wine you can have your very own wife.

Below are excerpts from Monica, a real Facebook bride.

Monica, 16, is one of two sisters sold as wives to men who found their photographs on their father’s Facebook page and contacted him. She and her 14-year-old younger sister never wanted to get married until …

The sisters belong to the Becheve community, a large tribe of 17 villages in Obanliku where there is a long tradition in which young girls—often referred to as “money women” or “money wives”—are sold in exchange for food or livestock or cash, or to settle debts.

Their respective husbands got in touch with their father after seeing the Facebook page where he posted photos of his six daughters to draw the attention of his tribesmen. The men of the clan have found the new technology helps to extend and expand their … traditions.

“My father knew nothing about Facebook until my elder brother bought him a smartphone and convinced him to join Facebook and post our photographs whenever he likes,” Monica told The Daily Beast.

“It is young people who convince old men to look for wives on Facebook,” said Monica

In effect, they use Facebook, quite literally, as a face book, although the actual exchange of money or goods does not take place online.

So gents, here’s another avenue to explore for relationship opportunities.


Getting married is a risk which may cause you great distress instead of happiness. Brides come as is, with no instructions, pre-nup, or warranty. The article implies that such women are trainable and willing to work but that is based on the testimonial of one bride and may not be your experience. If this doesn’t work for you, please sue Facebook and not us because they have lots more money. Thanks — ReallyRight management
