Why Is There So Much Marriage Dichotomy Amongst We Igbos by rosalieene(f): 10:37pm On Dec 06, 2015
why is there so much marriage dichotomy (division) among the igbos? there is usually the case of anambra saying "imo women and men are not good for marriage, they are full of criminals, prostitutes etc", same goes for imo people who will always tell their children that "anambra people are bad, they love money, do not marry from there or else you will be used for ritual" when are we the igbo both from Enugu, Imo Abia, Ebonyi and Anambra unite together? be critical in your comments

Same old generalizations.
Dis topic has been over flogged
Ignorance is usually d reason.. based on perceived fears dat marriage is a life long contract.
You know in Igboland divorce is strongly frowned at.
So its more likely they choose someone they have less sentiments about.
In as much as i frown at it.. Love witout understanding cant sustain a marrige.

You people keep repeating these tired lines. Only two out of my nearly a dozen married cousins and sisters are married to people from our state (Anambra), the rest - with the exception of one who married a Yoruba guy - went for Imo men.

In the past it was like that. However, some young people are overcoming those useless stereotypes. Usually, ignorance, pride, illiteracy and sheer arrogance are responsible for such behavior. Marriage is a strong drug for Igbo unity. I recommend it.

The same way the egba man will deride an ijebu woman the same way a Kano man will call the kaduna man Hausa banza

So shut up

The same way the Brit will look down on Roma lady or gypsy



Beside that we in anambra marry out ..

I was thinking it was we the ss people
Now it is we the Igbo


Nairaland has turned to impersonating land

The reason is that people are generally not smart.
