They Value Marriage
The African society places a lot of value on marriage and many traditions consider the union of man and woman as a sacred rite of passage. Every African man is expected to go through several initiation stages, one of which is matrimony. Marriage is an occasion that marks a man’s transition to another stage of life while integrating him into a bigger sphere of meaning and respect. To most African men, marriage is one of the greatest achievements in life and they will do whatever needs to be done to protect their marriage.
