Coffin makers at Asafo Labour in the Ashanti Regional capital of Kumasi have stated emphatically that marriage has become very scarce for them because of the profession in which they find themselves.
Some Coffin makers in the Garden city speaking in an interview with Pure Fm’s Osei Kwadwo monitored by MyNewsGh.com, explained that ladies always reject their marriage and love proposal because of their work.
According to them, “When we propose to the ladies they will accept our proposal but when they find out we manufacture coffins then they will call for a break up”.
“Despite our efforts to make them (ladies) happy by providing them with their needs, they will never continue the love journey with us. It is so pathetic that majority of ladies afraid of us because of our work as coffin manufacturers” they explained.
They narrate that “some of our colleagues who are married hid their work from their partners till they got married. Even some of them called for divorce when they noticed the work their husbands are doing”.
“They (ladies) know that so far as we manufacture coffins does not mean we are dangerous and want people to die. The trees we use to manufacture coffins are the trees carpenters use to manufacture beds, shoe stands, wardrobe and others”.
