inter-tribal Marriage is the an issue

The Issue should be good or bad men/woman

Men , please look from good women, don't let her tribe, race or nationality be an issue

If you make that an issue you might end up marrying an evil woman from your tribe

Marriage is about happiness

I am very much insupport of inter-tribal Marriages even inter-racial ones!!!

your children stand a better change to belong to two different worlds...Especially of they can speak two to three different languages...

one of my dearest aunty is half igbo and half yoruba married to a yoruba man. They live in lagos and als have various branches of their company in the East (Anambra state etc).The husband's business is successful in d east because his wife speaks very good igbo and also she can converse in yoruba which helps

I am yoruba and since I was little only Igbo guys seem to live me..my first crush was igbo and the trend has followed .

SO YES INTER-TRIBAL IS THE NEW VOGUE!!!!

Im a product of intertribal marriage cos u cant knw what the future brings so dont rule out any good one but rely on God. But so many people around really condemn marrying Ibos even the grandmas and most parents. I was even told some Ibos dont like marrying from their areas and prefer other tribes. One Ibo woman was mentioning Arondiozo, some tribes in Ibo where peeps shldnt go. They tell u to keep away from places whose languages u dont understand. Bt of all, Ibos have attracted the highest condemnation from what ive seen and heard.

it sure is a great adventure and can be beautiful. Presently i'm dating an Isoko girl while i am a Yoruba. She looks much more composed, and confident than her forerunners. I really hope it works!

I'm not against inter-tribal marriage. However, I do notice that there seems to be higher difficulty in marriages between Yorubas and Ndi Igbo. And it's never because of the couple, but because of external interference from the families. And someway, somehow, toxic seeds that are planted, end up growing and choking the marriage.

I wouldn't mind marrying an Ndi Igbo sister. But my only concern would be her family. The fact that I'm Yoruba might not give me a hero's welcome.

Ochi_Agha = Omenani - That is correct.

EzeUche is full Nigerian. I am half Black-American, and I have seen some of his disparaging remarks concerning my people so do not insult me.

Are you ok? What is your obsession with Igbo people? I find your rants quite annoying. Go back to the [b]Politics [/b]section where you belong you beast. And stop following me like some lost puppy.

 I usually don't support discrimination of any form, however; you are soooooo right on the "IBO" thing, i know a few folks married to ibos and it's nothing but diseaster on a large scale. YORUBA-HAUSA-SOUTH/SOUTh do get along fine, but ibo is a different story. again, im not a racist nor a tribalistic individual, but ileke-idi is on point on this issue, [b]

There is nothing wrong with marrying from another tribe, my wife is not from my tribe. It all depends on understanding.

I am not, I am being realistic.

The hate for the Yorubas is too much.

I prefer a Yoruba girl going with the Northerners [Hausa-Fulanis] than the Igbos.

We have much more in common with them.

Why the hate?

Intertribal marriage is fine between, say, Yoruba and Hausa, Edo and Yoruba, Fulani and Tiv, but with Ibos? Hell No.

First they have a very unique primitive culture that makes intertribal marriage with them unworkable.

I have nothing against Ibos. After travelling the breadth and lenght of Nigeria, I think I am in a very good position to express my mind as frank as possible

Ibos are also very angry and tribalistic people. It is either their way or nothing, and since marriage is based on mutual respect, trust and good communication, it beats my imagination how anyone could think that they could reason with a group of people who, over the years, have shown deep contempt fro people different from them

I cant force my views on anyone; one thing though, marry them at your own risk.

As they say in the SE ( about foreigners) : Come to Iboland, leave a dead woman!

Was that really necessary? All you needed to say your not into inter tribal marriages. You didn't need to take to a tribalist level.  And its Igbo not 'Ibo'.  Smmfh.

lol, nice word.

I think your types ceased to exist 5 decades ago. You are just an ethnic bigot and you can as well keep your advice to yourself.

I have no problem with inter-tribal marriages. I used to be involved in an Ashanti girl, when I was living in Ghana. She was so beautiful, and her family had no problem that I was Nigerian. Too bad I had to go back to the states. That woman was too beautiful and hopefully I see her again next year in Accra or Kumasi.

I have been married for 54 months to a loving wife who is not from my tribe. Our families get on great together ( her parents call my folks more than I do).

Love, maturity, exposure trump tribe any day.

The inheritance one I never hear before that a man would dislike a woman based on that.

Inheritance of whose property?

The mans?

Is it a bad thing for a woman to claim what is rightfully hers?

Infact I would run away from any man Igbo or Itsekiri with that type of mentality.

Rofl I didnt know you people were this jealous of us sha. Why the hell wouldnt we have inheritance when we are indeed daughters of our fathers or are women not children too? We thank God sha that we don't bathe in ignorance nor are we caged like christmas fowl.

I'm all for inter-tribal relationships / marriages.

I've never understood why parents threaten to disown / disinherit their children, because they choose to marry someone they love, who happens to be from a different tribe! It makes very little sense, and as far as I'm concerned, fosters tribalism. It's one of the reasons Africans don't unite as one, and it's a shame, really.

I'm Urhobo / Itsekiri, but I'm not marrying a girl from my "tribe". I'm marrying my choice, and woe betide anyone from my family who tries to get in my way! If my parents were alive today, and wanted to disown / disinherit me, then so would it be. I refuse to be blackmailed into marrying what they deem as the "right choice". Pretty much like allowing your parents to choose your bride / groom, with me, a definite no-no.

@ Allcorrect: It's a shame you gave in to your father, when he put his foot down, but you know best, all the best in your new relationship.

@ Ckc: You're Igbo, and you want to marry a Yoruba lady, good for you! Whatever tribes you both are, you're Nigerians and human, the tribal thing is secondary. Do what you feel is right, if you find the right lady for you, go for her! Disregard what others may tell you, they won't be living with your wife, you will!

Marrying from the same tribe does NOT guarantee both parties will stay together.

Intertribal marriage is bad

It is bound to fail, and I wouldnt advise anyone to do it; especially with Ibos, very backward and money making ritualistic people!
