INTRODUCTION

Marriage is a union of two or more people that creates a family tie and carries legal, social and religious rights, and responsibilities.

Traditional marriage thus is also the union of a male and female which include indigenous customs and practices that pertains to a particular culture. Traditional marriage is very crucial to the Igbo culture. It is said or believed that it preceded the ‘white wedding’ which was introduced during the advent of Christianity. Traditional marriage system otherwise called IGBA NKWU has its tradition which is solely determined by different communities.

In the area of traditional marriage, every community in the Igbo society has a modus operandi of how traditional marriage is conducted and the different customs and traditions attached to it. The traditional marriage system in Enyiogugu, Aboh Mbaise is conditioned by some certain cultural activities or norms. Hence, it is the intent of this project work to examine how greatly valued the Igbo culture is especially in the area of traditional marriage system. This project work hence will bring to light the role of traditional marriage, its changes and its improvements and the necessary traditional rites according to the customs of Enyiogugu in Aboh Mbaise local government area of Imo state.

 

  • BACKGROUND OF STUDY

Mbaise is positioned in the central part of Imo state1. It lies south of latitude of 6”30”. The land of Mbaise is approximately 479.15 square kilometer. Mbaise shares a common boundary with Mbano to the north, Ikwuano Umuahia to the east, Ekiti to the north east, Isiala Ngwa to the south, Mbaitolu and Ikeduru to the west and Owerri to the south east2.

According to 1963 census, the federal government authenticated figure for Mbaise was 307,7123. The 1991 census figure was 394,3384. The topography of Mbaise area is comparatively flat5.

Enyiogugu in Mbaise, like most other parts of eastern Nigeria is characterized by uniformly high temperature and seasonal distribution of rainfall. Literary translation of Mbaise means five group of people and they are Agbaga in which Enyiogugu falls under, Ahiara, Ekwereagu, Ezinihette  and Oke Avuru6.

Traditional marriage beyond reasonable doubt is one of the most important events in Igbo culture especially in Enyiogugu. The institution of marriage has been diversified based on different customs and conditions. Hence, the institution of marriage has not only been changed but has been passed down from generations to generations which have led to its continuity in present time. Marriage in Igbo land is divided into three elements; payment of bride price, marriage ceremony, and marriage conjugation. Though other steps of marriage are not categorized, hence in Enyiogugu, it is after the payment of bride price and marriage ceremony that a woman is thus legally married.
