Should a couple get married out of bread or love? Recently, a netizen took it to TikTok, saying that he was forced to break up with his girlfriend as he did not enough money and was unable to pay the dowry of RM30,000 requested by her mother.
The netizen, Ahmad Syahriman, a 26 year-old man working as a Health Inspector with KKM admitted that he is not making big bucks and he had to sacrifice his love towards his girlfriend.
In the TikTok video, he wrote “Sacrifice for happiness” and said “Your mother asked for RM30,000, but I’m just a wage earner.”
“With that, I am forced to break up with you. I hope you will find someone better.”
The short clip quickly went viral and he caught the attention of netizens, while they comforted and wish that he will find someone suitable. Meanwhile, most were shocked that her ex-girlfriend’s mother requested for RM30,000, which is a quite a huge sum of money.
On the other hand, a netizen left a comment, saying that “It’s best that you find someone rich. Do not look for poor girls from Kelantan, Terengganu, Melaka, Kedah and Negeri Sembilan as they are the biggest GOLD DIGGERS of Malaysia.”
It wasn’t sure what her intentions were, but the other netizens said not to generalise all the girls with states, as it is mainly based on the attitude of the individuals.
Nevertheless, there were many who felt his pain and encourage him to not give up in searching for his love again. They advised him to work hard and save enough for the challenges ahead in life too.
