A video has triggered massive reactions as it captures A South African pastor proposed to his grieving woman in the middle of her father’s funeral — mere feet from the deceased’s coffin.
According to Central News Agency, the pastor presiding over the service had asked the woman’s hand in order to help heal her shattered heart.
In the video shared, the deceased’s unnamed daughter is seen sobbing in the front row near her father’s casket. The suitor then kneels in front of the grieving woman with a microphone and asks the question, causing the other mourners to gasp in surprise.
The video concluded with the minister placing a ring on his future bride’s finger, which she appears to accept.
After she agreed to marry the pastor, mourners regained their voices and reacted in surprise.
CEN reported that the holy man explicitly praised God for being in his girlfriend’s life during such a trying period. He also expressed his hope that his suggestion would assist her in coming to grips with her father’s death. Watch the video below:
The video has caused debates between netizens as some criticized the pastor, claimed that his timing was off while some supported the man stating their reasons. Some reactions are shown below:
@Black_jewel_Dee said, ” hate people who love being the main character. I just lost a parent and you think is the best idea to ask me to marry you? I hate people who use other events to propose. Don’t try me on my graduation, birth of my child or my birthday. Please we got 365 days. Funeral is not it”…
@iamcephasmumunga said, “Honest if I was that woman ah I would dump him right there, like man come on I just lost someone and you are trying to play hero🚮🚮”.
@Vuyani03 said, “This is vile, worst time for anyone under her situation to make the right decision, the family needed to do what was done to Rakgadi in that popular funeral”.
@bokang_diphaphe said, “Men have no timing, why the hell did he think that it would be appropriate to propose during a funeral?”
“To me there is nothing wrong rather than seeing the message is clear, that is a strong love❤️ he is actually let her believe that he is now taking responsibilities on her like a father figure just to give her a warm heart… #anything can happen anywhere at any given time”, chikz30 said from Instagram.
barbieawunde said, “I think what the man is trying to prove is “I’ll be there for you no matter what”.
nchekwubeike said, “Maybe it has been the lady’s earnest desire for her dad to witness her proposal and marriage but unfortunately he passed on b4 the time so the guy decided to still make it up to her by proposing b4 her father’s corpse. Wahala”
