Just bear in mind that if you marry an Osu your children will automatically also become Osu and will face the same discrimination when it's time for them to marry also


Na wetin they never understand, the stigma and discrimination is out of this world.... BTW it's still has other negative effects.

Re: How Do I Convince My Family To Allow Me Marry An Osu by Dukeolumidemans(m): 11:57am On May 04
Ur not supposed to marry their kind. Let their kind marry their kind. That's why u need to visit ur village once a while to know ur tradition. If u do/insist, everything traditionally will change. Automatically una family don cast be that and ur people will always press ignore on all things concerning u and ur family...

Be very careful with these kids telling you 21st century and modern day. Tradition is tradition.

If you do otherwise, just make sure you don’t step your foot anywhere close to your village.

You see these ones talking like they know anything about life; they will be no where to be found when spiritual problem starts, and you will have no option than to carry your cross alone out of sheer negligence.


You no too bright

Bar1941:
I thought someone posted a story sometime ago that Osu system had finally been abolished, how come your family is still being adamant? Anyway marry the person if you truly loves him.


It can't be abolish, we all know it . It has a lot of negative effects that no family are willing to risk it.

Re: How Do I Convince My Family To Allow Me Marry An Osu by Goldbw122: 12:02pm On May 04
hmm, this kind of situation is very critical, if it is the man that is stressing to marry you they would have been warly possible, but as a female is is impossible..

Just show your family you now have sense and everything will be fine. Talking about osu in this century means you totally don't have sense.

a descendants of an outcast.

The Osu caste system is an ancient practice in Igboland that discourages social interaction and marriage with a group of persons called Osu. Osus are dedicated to the deities of Igboland; they are considered as inferior beings and are usually discriminated against.

In ancient osu can only marry themselves and live in an enclave.

it's more like a foul that was thrown to the river and it becomes a river property. and people get scared of the foul either to take it or stole it as it's seen as river goddess property.
but how do you know someone is an osu ? do they have bigger lips ? hairier legs ? are there visible ways to identify an osu ?

Re: How Do I Convince My Family To Allow Me Marry An Osu by iamezekwesiri: 12:03pm On May 04
You alone know the best way to convince your parents....... sampling people's opinion on how best to approach your parents on an issue as sensitive as this will further throw you into serious confusion especially from those who does not understand the seriousness of the issue at hand and non igbos, also peeps who are mostly free born(s) who doesn't know what it feels to be discriminated against or the ones that knows deep down that what they tell you is the opposite of what they and their families do practice..... The caste system in igboland has not been abolished regardless of the recent ohanaeze ndi igbo abolishment of OSU system in January this year..

Love isn't enough in marriage, and you won't exist alone if you decide to go ahead and marry him or her...... Are you willing to accept or bear the consequences? Tons of rejection and all that comes with it?

Vision101:
This osu thing is nonsense. You eat together, Bleep together, lick yourselves, sometimes abort the pregnancy and the osu goddess will not do anything. Only when it's time for marriage that the goddess will surface.

What type of cast is that. When you were dating the young man might be giving your parents and relations osu money and they will be using and nothing happened to them.

Talk to your brothers and sisters that are enlightened. Once they support you, go for court wedding.

Husband scarce oooooo. I done tell you finish!!!



You are misinformed they don't attend gathering together..... IT'S FACT.

You people will just come online and start giving useless advise.

I hope you will be there to comfort her when she starts crying that her children are being discriminated against as a consequences of her decision to marry an Osu undecided

@ Hammergirl don't make a decision based on the advise of someone who will not bear the consequence of that decision!
