Does an introduction to in-laws equal marriage proposal?

If a man takes you to meet his parents does it mean he is going to marry you? This is the question that has divided most women on Facebook.

Opinion is divided on whether an introduction to the parents of the person one is dating equals a marriage proposal.

Women camped on the Kilimani Mums Udaku Zone Facebook group and shared their personal experiences on the subject.

Some were of the view that the very act itself is a show of the man’s commitment and seriousness while others said a man will do anything just to get what he wants, and in most cases it is not necessarily marriage.

“No anatafutia mama yake mboch wa muda tu next utapelekwa ukae na mamake for like a week as you mboch for her and for you utafikiria ni kuolewa na utafanya bidii eti ndio you impress the woman then after like 6 months ukuwe dumped and he moves on to the next victim ndio ukuje hapa ukitulilia oooooh this ooooohhh that,” Shelby Sutton wrote.

“No…actually his parents know all his other chicks,” commented Naomie Qelcie.

“Wacheni wivu huyo anakuowa a real man hawezii peleka mwanamke kwao kwa WAZAZI kama hataki kukuowa unless umemulazimisha atasema let me take u for the sake of peace but hawa magume gume ndio KITU yakuanza muki meet anakuambia I want u 2meet my my my my mpaka unachoka ukionyeshanwa kwa kila MTU unadhani umepata bila kujua umepatikana,” narrated Jesscarmamu Myambu.

“Not at all, you never know amepeleka wangapi since January,” said mercy Maish.

“No, he’s sampling out and his mother is in the game too, his mum is there to compare you with the previous ones who came a cross, the his mum with point one for him. My neighbor is good at that,” said Tecklar Clay.

“Some will take u just to earn points. Be smart my lady,” said Eva Muthei.
