ofcourse there is. dont even think of it.
Re: Igbo Girl Marrying A Yoruba Boy by Gboliwe: 8:43am On Jun 24, 2013
One advice: have a mind of your own.
Re: Igbo Girl Marrying A Yoruba Boy by Nobody: 9:34am On Jun 24, 2013
@OP, please dont even try it if you want to be happy in your marriage! Yorubas are known to be very lazy, dirty, unfaithful and diabolical.

Whoever asking such a question is a kid and have NO business discussing marriage.
Its 2013 and people still talk right through their dirty,smelly, unwashed A.n.uus? When u say Igbos have "the best culture" what exactly do u mean?

Lekwanu question cheesy
Re: Igbo Girl Marrying A Yoruba Boy by AndreUweh(m): 8:49pm On Jun 24, 2013
at the poster, you are free to marry your yoruba man since Igbo people hardly notice you.
You are free since you are not charming to Igbo men.
You are free since Igbo men don't care whether you exist.
But then you have to search yor self why you are not attracting Igbo men. Are you too ugly, unkept, smelly, uneducated and cook with so much mmanu?.

@OP
You're marrying an individual and not a Yoruba man. Every human being have a behavior unique to them and they should not be judged based on where they come from.

In my own world anything black is beautiful be it Ethiopia to South Africa or Madagascar to Gambia. Once you've found that African love, then its love. However if you are too sensitive to tribal differences as an individual just be prepared for the worst. My family from my grandparents down to me is a mix of ethnic groups and its fun.

I know that Igbo girls are not cheap and do not go about begging Yorubas to marry them.
But there are Igbo girls who are unwanted and Yorubas can have them.

It's rare to see Yorubas coming here to claim they want to marry Igbo, Yorubas are not shameless to do so, only shameless Igbo ladies do that. I spit on this sort of attitude. Aru.

No.this is not a matter of being bitter!?
But any 'fresh' Igbo girl/lady romancing with a yoruba guy in the name love is sitting on a time bomb.

There's a nice yoruba guyz out there who can make a best of friend but not HUSBAND.
When he cloaks like 40 to 50 he will surely show their "trade mark"grin

Abegii, stop wasting ur saliva here ; who are u to determine who is Igbo and who is not one ; and who told U ur progenitor is an Igboman !!!

An Igbo with more than clannish mentality is better than thou,kwa!!!


If one Igbo girl marry a Yoruba Dude does that stopped U from marrying the remaining millions of Igbo girls and why are u so bittered as if the only Igbo girl of your life has been taken away from U !!!

Dude, in reality, the girl here has not met any Igbo interested in her. If so, she would have married the Igbo guy without you and I knowing of it. Since there are no Igbo on her way, then her second choice is Yoruba. Even at that, she is not happy and still want opinions. Introduce to her an Igbo man today, she will flee from the Yoruba chap. This is desperation and I don't blame her.
Her question should be; how can she marry an Igbo?.

Guy,I don't know your age but really, U re sounding like an inexperienced kid :::::::

U re just highly tribalistic and tis quite (un)fortunate that u can never do anything about this inter-tribal marriage even when ur daughter is affected tongue !!!


Love,Marriage,Relationship,Romance,Intimacy is more than Tribal Union ,It is the matter of the HEART and some many people engaged in it for different reason or no reason/last option !!!


Emeka may not be able to give to Chioma,@ a point in time,what Olakunle would do for Chioma ::::::: Alas,U still advocate Chioma to established Union with Emeka simply cuz He is Her Tribesman !!!

So,In ur own Logical Reasoning,''Tribe'' is the only Yardstick to be considered in marriage !!!


Who told U she won't suffer same hardship from Igboman what she might suffered with Yorubaman OR enjoy a better level of fulfilled life with Yorubaman as would an Igboman !!!


See dude,Happiness is more than what can be obtainable in the clan,it can be achieved anywhere, just grab it when and where u see it !!!


For the fact that something work for U shoudn't mean tis gonna work for others ::::::::::

And If u think U re not comfortable with her decision to marry a Yorubaman, U can help her to find a better Igbo dude who can satisfy her feelings/emotions than Her present YorubaDude ::::::::::::: till then,stop displayin ur bitterness!!!

If she doesn't want my opinion, she won't be here to raise such an issue. Do you expect me to say she should go ahead and marry her Yoruba guy. You must be joking. Look I hate pretence and I say things as I see it. Few Igbo who marry Yoruba are just those who haven't got much to do with the Igbo race. Asia result their dealings are mostly with non Igbo.
All the yearsI spent growing up in Ibadan Yorubaland, I did not witness any Igbo marrying Yoruba. Reason because Ndigbo over their engage themselves in Igbo activities. There were so many Igbo activities everywhere even in churches. These activities were avenues for Ndigbo to meet Ndigbo.
Those Igbo who do not engage themselves in Igo activities end up marrying outside the Igbo race. For Igbo girls who are starved of Igbo men please engage your selves in Igbo associations and activities.
Because Igbo girls are beautiful, well raised up and intelligent, Yorubas are dying to marry the not because of any love.
Anyway, am happily married and when it was time for me to choose a wife, I chose Igbo despite having spent more of my life outside Igboland. My sisters also have married to Ndigbo. But you can give all your sisters to Yorubas I don't care. Take it or leave it Ndigbo to Ndigbo.

You find it difficult to understand my angle. So you expect me to say an Igbo girl should marry a Yoruba. Look am for real, it is not about hate but to stick to what I holistically believe. This is not the first time neither would it be the last. I say no to Yoruba men always looking around Ndigbo for wives. They have to change their women to suit their taste or manage what they have got. Igbo and Yoruba are miles apart and are not same. Why is this reality difficult for people to understand.
My advice to the girl once again is no to Igbo vs yoruba nonsense.
Above all, my sisters who are proud Igbo are not insane to marry Yorubas. No and never.

No U aint for real and ur angle is well understood and concieved but the manner with which u shoot your angle is quite wrong !!!


I am not here to change ur perception of Igbo marrying YorubaDude,why would I wanna do that and who are U to determine what an average Igbo girl do with her Life ,(u kno the answer) !!!


Lol grin @ Yorubaman to Change Yoruba woman to suit their taste grin , u re very funny and highly boastful ( typical of a local African-Igboman) :::::::: Atleast,every blessed weekend(Saturday and Sunday) there is marriage in SW/Yoruba of Nigeria in thousands across the region,since u claimed u once based in Ibadan,how many of those marriages are with IgboGirl ?



Just few Igbo/Yoruba relationship lead to the alter and those few are really strong as far as it is not a Taboo in Igbo inherent custom to marry a Yoruba, why are u this bittered !!!


The maximum u would do is keep condemning it :::::::: And More Yoruba Dude shall keep marrying IgboGirl (OtuOcha) !!!!


U re Juts tribalistic,Individualistic and highly selfish, when all the show is limited to Igbo-Race,U would still come up with Type of Igbo whether na Osu or Freeborn , After which u would determine Village,Kinsmen, all in all What u will be satisfying is ur own personal satisfaction not the Girl in question !!!


I am only asking U to save ur self the stress of condemnation/Tribalism,lets all forge ahead with GLOBALISATION !!! Clannish/Individualistic Mentality can not achieve much in this dispensation !!!


And, I am not surprised simply cuz If a whole Race would segregate,victimised and discriminate their fellow tribesmen/compatriot and tagged them ''OSU'' ,Truly, Yoruba would be farther a race




By the way, what have u been doing in Ibadan, cuz if we should advance ur theory to cover not just marriage but other sphere of Life,Ur village is where u should enjoined all ur life grin :::::::


No be LIFE u seek come Yorubaland,and ur sister has decided to seek eternal life with a Yorubaman:::::::: Na same thing Joor !!!
