Wish i could give a satisfying answers to that, It's something i find belligerent amongst these yoruba mothers arising to their unfair accession over their son's choice of spouse - this is a more causecelebre issue which need serious attainment for clear accentuating.
your seemly impressive vocabulary is iced with flaws and gramatically incorrect. Try and communicate but not to show off d deposits u have in ur vocabulary bank.

Everyone knows yoruba men marry out more than any tribe in Nigeria.


@ op story for the gods..
Your question should be why don't igbo mothers allow their son marry yoruba ladies.

Op you make it seems like getting married to a yoruba is prestige..

Its a fact, the average yoruba mum frowns at the idea of an Ibo daughter-in-law


But, I'm not understanding, why?


The funniest excuse I've heard is that : Ibo women don't make an effort to learn Yoruba culture and pass such ideals to their kids

First of all, "Your seemly" is wrong, "iced with grammatical" wrong, you don't _ice_ words. Where did you invented the word _seemly_From? It's seemingly. if you get perturbed over my text, you should probably aid your low-self the necessary solution with the use of your lexicon - I communicate with effective words, it's obvious that you don't possess cognisant brain to comprehend such text that's far beyond your cerebral - veer not to dare my prowess or you would find yourself on horns of dilemma. it would be of a great help for you to clench to this.

Hey mister, the basic idea behind communication is to be understood by your hearers/readers. If understanding is not reached, communication has not taken place. There is always the issue of the right audience for everything. Your highly verbose and jaw-breaking posts are not suited for this audience. Better retract or simply move on if you have no understandable ideas to contribute.

You are right but worefa! just speak the English we would understand and stop trying to impress urself. As u can see, I don't understand all those grammar, because they can even add to this economic recession. No body speaks such vocabulary in this recession as ppl are too hungry to rack brains for one yeye grammar here.

How many people vocabulary don employ? I beg!

Igbo mums don't prevent their sons at all. My brothers married from different tribes Yoruba, kogi, delta...It's really Not d mothers business whom dia son chooses to marry as dey believe she is an addition to d family nd she'd b treated very well but on d oda hand they don't like dia daughters going too far if possible they'd prefer she marries from her village.

wait o is d girl getting married to d man or his mother Which one is kneel down while greeting hmmm.
I think d Major problem with igbo /Yoruba Marriage is d fact dat igbo girls ain't trained to be dat submissive as d Yoruba custom demands. Most igbo girls are looking for life partners Not a lord/master. sincerely if I'm married to a Yoruba man nd I'd b required to be kneeling and lying down before every elderly woman I meet den every Christmas I will simply fake one sickness dat will make him liv me behind while traveling.

This was able to happen bcs the woman must have some traits of Yoruba culture in her. You said she speaks Yoruba fluently. It's either she was born in the west or started living there at a very tender age. 90 percent of Yorubas don't marry other tribes.
Marry whoever you find love in. Let's say no to tribalism, we are Nigerians.
Are you sure you're saying this out of what your uncles and aunts must have fed you with?
If you've stepped out of your zone, you'll be amazed how carefree most Yorubas are instead of relying on the lies you're being told.

Do you think it's a mere coincidence that most Igbos born or raised in the West are more liberal than those born or raised in the East?

My dear, for me, Igbo women are the best ever as a wife material. one man's meat is another man poison. I hv dated over 4 igbo ladies in my life and i had no regret at all. though i hv my taste and know d type that suites me without any need for prophetic nor, oracle consultation. My dear, not all igbos are troublesome. the success of a marriage is a question of management and the consenting couples in question to include a sum total of human psychology, so lets not made a bad stock of the igbo tribes at all, for someone like me, i have a big phobia for my fellow yoruba ladies and sisters though they are fantastic people. without argument or controversy and much detail, igbo women may be heady and stubborn affirmatively, but they still remain the best wife material idle for marriage in Nigeria. if i find a decent one, I think i will have to invite all my well wishers and back talkers to join me to grace the conjugation in my woman's village, in church and at the registry ASAP!!

History and perception is the problem with intertribal marriages in Nigeria, the civil war and its results has and still makes relationships between both tribal groups suspect but I'm glad things are getting better in this generation. If I find a good ibo girl that loves me, na to knack am belle con see if den no go gree make I wife am.

Tales abound of Yoruba mother in laws, supporting the marriages of Igbo wives to be to their sons, the only clause I've heard is that they must move to the west.

The dog who wont hear the master's whistle will get lost

IGBO's are wonderful and lovely tribe ONLY WHEN THEY MARRY THEMSELVES.... cross marriage can never work for them... because they are all BORN LEADERS.... HAVING THEIR WAY IS INBRED IN THEM... and it doesn't show when they are singles especially in the ladies but it will over time.

You are just jealous of bae because she is Igbo. grin
