RE: The Nigerian/African Disposition On Marriage As An Endowment

in Cross Culture9 months ago

Society always finds a way to expect things from people and for female folks, everyone expects them to get married. Especially after attaining a level of success that they feel is enough for a woman. As a man, there is a grace period but eventually, everyone starts breathing down your neck for marriage.

Marriage requires a lot from both parties and being adequately prepared for it should not be overlooked. Compatibility is a very key factor when choosing someone to get married to. Most times we fail to acknowledge that we may love that person and they love us but we may not be compatible and that will lead to some issues as time goes on.

The pressure is what eventually leads to multiple mistakes, i believe that it stems from what we culturally believe to be obtainable. However age for example shouldn't be why we should be married but readiness in all aspect. In the video I talked a lot of about why the right institutions are necessary to set in place to educate people at large. It's quite an elaborate topic. Thanks for dropping by.

This is a very important factor that is being ignored in our society today. That is why the rate of divorce keeps increasing per year. People get into the marriage and find out they are not prepared for everything that comes with it.
