Other Tribes(Youraba etc) Marries At Early Stage Than The Igbos Men Why?

Am wondering why Igbo Men hate to marry in good time. Is it that they prefer money, house, wealth than having a wife? Please can somebody tell me why?

just saw this tribalist post.the truth is that civilization comes with westernization in present world.there are two types of igbos cum the rural dwellers and the urban dwellers.the rural igbos marry too early(between 16 and 20 years) while the city ones marry between 25 and 35.looking at the two groups you will understand that the urban group are more educated and enlightened than the rural.it is only wise to marry when you are ready and not rush into marriage.nowadays in igboland parents refuse to give out their schooling daughters for marriage.there is that belief that she has to finish university before being considered adult.i dont consider 16 year old man marrying a 12 year old girl as a good thing.igbos and their neighbours(ijaw,crossriver,delta and bini) marry when ready and it is a sign of civilization.

yes, other tribes marries early, but for the igbos they prefer they have money, houses, cars and other things which are vanities b4 they get married. that is why u see an igbo man who is 50 and his first child is just 5

i also pity ur children if u have one.

Yo girlie,  your family would be heart broken when they find out that you've been up to no good.  @ Members of the forum, don't you feel for the poor man who worked for heard for nothing,  Her family picture is attached, please anyone who knows the family should please tell her dad to go and collect this feral child from port harcourt. I wouldn't like her to run up her mouth on the street and get killed.

its obvious u r igbo too so we should be telling ourselves kpele,but d kpele should be more on ur side,cos i have not brought up a thread like dis b4,but u just brought it out and its obvious u have a thing against d igbo guys,maybe one has broken ur heart,and mind u im not fighting for d igbo men,im only using my marriage as an example,my husband was not old and grey wen we married,rather he was very young,and so was i,so there was no time for a heartbreak for me ,so dont conclude about dis age of a thing,cos i know lots of them that got married very early

You sounds like some people have been arranging marriage for you. we don't marry by arrangement ok. you can equall visit those old wrenk sisters of yours to help u out of your frustration and bitterness because these two are not in my diarly ok, as a matter of fact; i am not searching ok. so why don't you take this opportunity and get your self one through your wrenk elderly ibo ladies. Keep it real i can see is working out for you. Old wrenk thing like u.

May Kelly, can i ask you, did you go to iboland to get an ibo man and can't get known. Instead of being bitter, i might be more constructive to approach an elderly ibo lady to help you. If you really beg her, she will call a meeting with her sister friends and they will find one for you. No matter how wrenk you are, there must be an ibo man that can manage you. You carry on like you don't like ibo's but you speak the language, that dont make no sense. Sis, keep it real, all you have to do is ask.

As i have told you remember. Is abomination your pleasure, a 14 yr old is not yet an adult ok. So stop that act you have been commiting.

By your speech you too lack HOME TRAINING AND UNDERSTANDING. I DON'T WORSHIP OR DIE FOR TRIBE. IF SOMETHING IS BAD I SAY IS BAD, I DO NOT COVER PEOPLE SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY ARE IGBO,HAUSA,YORUBA,CHRISTIANOR MUS.LI.M. OK. I stand on the truth.

I feel good and no problems. You should first understand yourself and the topic at large; stop being partial. Anyway you and ur innocent people should be and leave me alone.

I understand how you feel. So you are in Port Harcourt? Maybe we can arrange to see and I will explain better to you. This will help better than pouring all these vituperation on innocent people that only want to answer you question. Take things easy.

@poster, you are really going beyond bounds. This is not a laughing matter. It is obvious that you really lack home training. Rather than accept wise counsels from able and dignified Igbo sons and daughters on Nairaland, you resort to name calling.

I forgive you seeing that you are a juvenile, as someone rightly observed.

On a final note, Stop being opinionated. Learn to respect people's ethnicity.

well the men i see marrying at that ages are usually on their 2nd and 3rd wife.

At what age did your family members got married? i know you are igbo.

OP, why are you getting so hot under the collar? People have their own opinions on the matter, they obviously have not experienced what you assert is supposedly the norm among Igbo men. I have to say, that I have never been to an Igbo wedding where the groom was over 40, all in their thirties, but I wont say they dont happen.

Anyhoo, I agree that many expect a man who says he wants to marry to be settled or even accomplished in other areas of his life first. He is assuming some responsibilty by getting married.

In this day and age, I think many cultures around the world are seeing later marriages.

LOL I was thinking the same thing. @ Poster, where did u come up with a random as hell # such as 43! LOL, I am Igbo and I have been to many Igbo weddings and NONE have been that age, Oh I guess they were not included in the sample size for your accurate and in depth research,

0
Avatar
Newbie

I was going 2 say the same thing. Although i'm not igbo i have gone to at least 7 igbo weddings and i believe the age range was around 27 - 34 for the husbands

@Poster

U might probably know maybe 1 or 2 ppl dat got married @ dat age, dat does not mean you should generalize the whole igbo tribe.

0
Avatar
Newbie

Oh really? Well how did you come up with that? How can you be so exact at 43? Is it that you know one person that married at 43 and you are now generalizing? My last three cousins that married were less than 34 before marriage.

@poster,

Did you also notice that igbo people are the least in divorce cases, They believe in being able to take care of their wives before marrying them. Average igbo guy does not depend on his fathers house or wealth. They want to build their own houses before getting married. I don't say this is right or wrong but i believe that marriage is not what you jump into because you love a girl or a boy, Besides why are other tribes not marrying at 12 or 13,

MY FATHER MARRIED AT 23 AND HE IS IGBO

It's not their culture. But there's a truth in it that they tend to marry later than any other Nigerian ethnicity, moreover your age bracket estimation is over the top.
