SHORT HISTORY OF NIGERIAN WEDDING
Two major types of marriage exist in Nigeria: monogamy, a marriage of one man to one woman, and polygyny, a marriage of one man to two or more wives. In most cultural groups in Nigeria, traditional marriage is usually an arrangement between two families as opposed to an arrangement between two individuals.
Accordingly, there is tension on the bride and bridegroom to make the marriage work as any problem will usually affect both families and strain the otherwise cordial relationship among them. In most Nigerian cultures, the man regularly pays the dowry or bride-price and is thus considered the head of the family. Adultery is tolerable for men but forbidden for women. Marriage ceremonies vary among Nigerian cultures.
