Is anybody married person here who is either Ibo or Yoruba but married to the other? Of course there will be differences in Language and cultural upbringing. Are you into it? For how many years? What's the experience like? Contributions are highly welcome.

U do know not all marriages are the same.. Some work out and some don't. My brother is Igbo and married to an Urhobo lady for 6years now...its been bliss cos both families luv and respect each other. It might not be same for another similar marriage.

If u are planning on having an inter-tribal marriage, just make sure ur partner is the one for u without doubt. Ur foundation determines the strength of ur marriage..

You don't need to rely on other people's opinions to take a decision...

You are on a very loooooong thing.

You wanted a candid advise for a serious decision on Nairaland of all places, involving the online Cain and Abel tribes.

Fact; These two tribes easily cohabit and have great families way more than any other tribal combo in this country ( I.e you'd easily see 10 SE-SW combo homes before you'd see either of them with the North). Yorubas and Ibos marry almost every saturdays contrary to what they present to you online.



how do I know that? Well, I'm a first class Witness and I must tell you its been so great.

You should be more concerned about


1} The chemistry between you too. Do you love your partner? Is he or she also so much into you?

2} How about the Parents. Both Parents? Have they given their assent to the union? The earlier you discover this the better. Of course, some might tell you it doesn't really matter, truth is, it does, esp for an inter-tribal union, else, it becomes too frustratingly complicated.

3} How strong are you to take the bullets for what you believe in? Believe me, its inevitable. It'd mos' def' come in one form or the other.

I nearly dated an ibo girl during my service year. After we parted ways after service, she regretted never dating me but she later told me that ibo should marry ibo while Yoruba marry Yoruba. That statement changed my approach towards ibo but it's been 5 years after. Now there is an ibo girl again oo. I never even toast her but she already calls me love on whatsapp. I like her too but the difference in language gives me concern.
