Anne Kansiime is currently divorced from her husband of six years, Gerald.
The two apparently split up because of personal reasons that are yet to be known by the public. However during an episode of ‘Ann and Nana’ talk show the female comedian for the first time opened up about paying for her own dowry.
According to Kansiime, she contributed to the dowry that was supposed to be fully paid by Gerald. But because of the love she felt for him, Kansiime stepped in to help out.
You know when you love someone, all you want to do is make them able to pay for you, able to afford you as far as dowry is concerned,
Stupid in love?
However years later she realized that what she had done was wrong. From her perspective, love made her reason with her emotions forgetting that any man who wants to marry; is supposed to play his role even if what he has is not enough to cover for the dowry.
She however now advices young women to avoid being carried away by emotions because at the end of the day, they will be filled with regret!
I am saying this for anyone at home who is in a situation that they cannot leave because of what people will think, or if you are nearly getting married but you are tempted to contribute to that dowry. You will feel the way I am feeling.
