    So, my uncle is teasing me and he wont stop. So he keeps on bringing up marriage and its stressing me out. I'm like 17 years old. So I went and watched the Black panther last week and my Uncle like, "So, I've found an African tribe and you will then ask for your hand, choose wisely?"
    I'm getting so upset, he even sent this on our family wattsap group, he also sent pics of different tribes.

    I don't know what your relationship with him is like but I would just ask him if you can have a word with him in private and look him dead in the eye and say "I have absolutely no interest in getting married at this age. I would much rather focus on my (education/career/whatever). Even if I did want to get married I'd want to do it off my own back. I'd really appreciate if you stopped putting pressure on me." Be DIRECT. Don't take no for an answer. if this fails, ask your parents to have a word with him.

    So my uncle's one of them, one he starts he doesn't stop. its not like I am going to get married at this age but he's putting me off getting married in the future. He wont stop bugging me, plus what makes my situation worse it that he puts it on my family group chat. if he put it just between us as a joke, ok. but he didn't instead, he puts it on the family chat where nearly all my cousins and family can see.

    So the thing is, if it was just between us it will be fine, but since he brought my family into it, makes it so worse. plus, its so frustrating. so I don't think having a private conversation would make a difference. but I will take you advice and have the conversation.
