Counselor George Lutterodt speaking to eTV Ghana has revealed a brother has the right to sleep with his brother’s wife if he represents him at his engagement.
According to the relationship counsellor, representing others at their engagement is wrong.
“You are not in Ghana and you want to marry this fine lady and your family ask your brother to stand in for you. Libation is poured on you on behalf of your brother and when they finish, they call the husband abroad to let him know the ceremony is done.
When that happens, the one who stood in has the right to have sexual intercourse with the girl because traditionally the wife was given to whoever was present and the witnesses don’t know the one abroad. The whole point is that, engagement without the person marrying the girl is null and void spiritually and morally.”
