Marriage tribalism

Marriage tribalism
Now I really need to emphasize on this
situation because it’s becoming a painstaking
issue. Perhaps you don’t know I’m NIGERIAN
and trust me I’m proud of that.
Have you noticed that in some cultures in West
Africa especially Nigeria,many cultures still
don’t allow their kids to marry from another
tribe and these has left most ladies single even
at age 40. The first daughters of most families
suffer this a lot, this is because such parents
insist on following tradition (Even in 21st
Century….abeg its a wake up call).
Should we follow this type of tradition and
allow our children suffer, even when they find
“love” from another tribe? Parents should
understand that it is happiness that is the
utmost and not where the person comes from.
Lets read of the case of Chukwudi a medical
doctor who is in love with Bimpe a Lawyer , He
being the first of seven children is expected to
marry from within their locality, his parents
have vehemently refused to grant him
permission to marry Bimpe, all because she is
a yoruba girl. This year makes it their fourth
year in courtship. The two lovers have refused
to give up on love and affection but cannot
come out openly all in the name of TRIBALISM.
Bimpe’s parents also have the tribalism issue
saying she has to marry a yoruba man (all na
formality sha).
Anyways, my point is for how long do we have
to keep our children’s happiness on hold? Must
we marry someone from our village? Love for
me is the most important and where you find it
doesn”t really matter.
What’s your contribution?
