3 Important Things to Know Before You Marry Fulani Lady

The Fulani people are one of the most widely spread tribes in the world. They are predominantly found in West Africa and northern parts of Central Africa. Some of these countries include; Nigeria, Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso, Cameroun and Senegal. The Fulani people of Nigeria are mainly pastoral; they move across vast areas of land and come across different cultures.

They speak Hausa, French, English and Fulfulde or Fula language. They are mostly Muslims and they follow Islamic laws like the Hausas.

The Fulani traditional marriage ceremony is one of the best traditions that have been preserved in Nigeria.

Although marriages in Nigerian tribes are sacred, the Fulani traditional marriage is highly exceptional as a lot of spirituality and traditional values are accorded to marriage.

The Fulani people practice a kind of marriage system that can be best described as ‘endogamy’ (marriage within an ethnic group), a tradition that is gradually going into extinction as inter-tribal marriages are now common among the tribe.

However, there are three important things you must know if you must marry a Fulani lady.

These three things are what makes the marriage to be sacred:

#1 Kowgal (payment of dowry)

Like other tribes in Nigerian culture, the payment of dowry is very important to the Fulani people as the bride will not be allowed to move in with the groom without the payment. The dowry is usually paid in form of herds of cattle to the bride’s father while the bride price which is gift items are given to the bride herself.

#2 Sharo (flogging)
This is the most interesting and difficult part of the marriage ceremony as the groom-to-be will have to be flogged before he can marry the lady.

I know by now you will be wondering why the groom has to be flogged before marrying the bride. This is because the Fulani people cherish their females and they always do everything possible to protect them. They believe that if a man can withstand the flogging definitely he will be able to protect their daughter.

Guy, if you must marry a Fulani lady abeg rethink am now before is too late.

But once you can endure the flogging, the babe becomes yours.

#3 Kabbal (Celebration)
This is just a wedding ceremony and this usually takes place after the dowry and other marriage rites have been completed.

This is actually very similar to how we do things in my culture. I've seen the "flogging", but I never understood what it was for. It's usually done playfully by the females in attendance. Not a serious beatdown & the groom is covered with a blanket so he doesn't get hurt lol.

Who does the beating & how serious is it? Just curious.

Thanks for replying.

Just like it is written in the article above, the kind of flogging here mentioned is different from that of your tradition. The flogging is a serious one and it is being carried out by young men from the bride's family.

It is believed that if the man is able to withstand the pain definitely he truly love the lady and also he would be able to protect her from any form of danger.

this is really funny!


meanwhile

Let's have a little review on today's match between the Barcelona fc and Chelsea fc otherwise called the Pensioners club!

Well, im sure you are well lettered that the both teams have met couple of times over the last few years.

Let's take a look at what happened 2 meetings ago with the Catalian giant.

Do you know that during the recent two meetings, which many has described as a duel that has no definite conqueror! Maybe i'll agree with them to some extent.
In 2009, the first team to be at home was Barcelona, what they played a goaless 0-0 draw. Chelsea drew them at home and after some fortnight later they (Barcelona) came visiting at the Stamford's bridge. They scored a late goal courtesy of Iniesta, at some exact of 93+ minutes. They sent the London Blues packing from the 'Champé'. I couldn't cry that day, I actually skipped my Dinner.
It was only three years later, the archaic rivals were paired once more, and now it was a new story in its entirety.
2012 and it was Barcelona vs chelsea in the same semis and chelsea had the day after Barca got beating at first leg with a goal to Nil. The late goal of Ramires made chelsea advanced to the Final. Yeah, many people remembered that.



Maybe as the Rastaferians will say
'Don't worry about a thing, every little thing is gonna be alright'
I'm not so worried, yes I'm a Chelsea fan. Truly wouldn't it be a lack of No6 usage if one fails to think what the score board will be at 23:00 gmt today 14/3/2018.
I hope with the goal apiece we got at the bridge made chelsea fc lagging on the opportunity table and putting their counterpart (barca) becoming the favourite!
I think if Barcelona are so full of pity for chelsea, maybe it'll be a 3 goal win to 1 for chelsea. So I think, but what do I know?


I think chelsea should please go to Nou camp with a full zeal of winning!

Let's wait and see what happens in some hours from now.

Fulani seems to be the most hated tribe on the planet recently grin

I don't think the "Sharo" part applies to the Rich and Elites...

Are you saying Buhari was flogged before he married Aisha? undecided
