The excessive list of pricey gifts Linda Andrade, 24, from Los Angeles, demanded as a “dowry” when her partner proposed to her, has made her an internet star.
According to DailyMail, Linda, who met her now-husband Ricky, a multimillionaire company owner, when they were both 19 years old, revealed that she had particular financial expectations for her future spouse to meet before they got married.
These demands included her investment property, a payment of $100,000 (N76 million) as part of the ‘dowry’, seven diamond rings, and a custom designer dress for their wedding day.

Linda said her husband fell drastically in love with her and had to fulfil all her desires as he couldn’t let her go.
“It was definitely love at first sight and we have been inseparable since the day we met. The gifts I requested were things I could see myself using for a lifetime,” she said.
Additionally, Linda’s list covered lifelong monthly vacations and multiple housekeepers to tend to their homes.
“The best part of the way I live would be the free time and life experiences I have. It can get very tiring travelling and shopping all the time though. But life now is better than my unmarried life before.
“I’m living with my best friend and travelling the world. We’re young and successful and it’s fun.”
Despite their life of luxury in Dubai, Linda emphasised that the connection she shares with Ricky is the most valuable aspect of their relationship.
She admitted that keeping up with the latest trends can be draining, but overall, she is content with her decision to marry someone who can provide the millionaire stay-at-home lifestyle she desires.
