I don't understand the meaning of customs and tradition any more and i think if there is need Nigeria should be redesigned. You see, somethings sounds like taboo, abomination and incense or better still sacrilege. But, i dont even know these things existed, where it is normal for a man to bed his mother in the name of custom, until my relocation to my new station.
do you know in a part of Nigeria, a woman or widow is permitted to marry her son and raise (i mean live together, sleep together and conceive and bear children for him)children for him? Now how do you feel having to choose between your girl friend and mother?
Let me be candid a little. A woman's husband dies and she was being asked if who would she want to be re-married to? She simply said her first son against the brothers in-law eying her. the son accepted and they performed the necessary traditional marriage right and was allowed to take the so called wife (mother) to his bosom. The man keeps the new wife in their home town and comes from Abuja to visit as often. Bobbo just newly got married to fine girl but never explained the other side to the wife.
The height of the whole thing happened when both mother and new wife were pregnant for man.
The lady felt like committing suicide but was told that that was the custom and that actions was uncalled for.
I tried asking a friend why would such a custom be allowed but he simply asked me, what difference has this from men who marry their late brothers wives, in some part of the country.
For me, even if that was the only thing to reject that will make me being an outcast, i think it's worth doing. Some of these evil customs and traditions should be checked and be abolished.


Please state the name of the community( your new station).
cos i doubt your gist

A woman agreeing to marry her son is an accepted practice in igboland. Her chioce to marry the son is not for procreatn (cos its 4biden) is to
1. Stil be a member of family to which her love (hubby) died or alive, is stil a member.
2. It also gives her a right of selflessness 2 raise her kids & nt answerable 2 any man bt 2 d family.
3. It takes away societal stigma of widowhood 4m a woman

If we dnt ve norms & belief systems...we r nothing bt savages...I wud luv to know where ur story happened?

Sounds like a creative joke but can be true tho.
Folks, this is one of the worst sections of culture.Lots of countries are doing more than this... for real.
Remember any wrong doing that goes around in a community over a year will definitely become culture likewise the right ones.

Well, I bet the woman chose her son cos... she doesn't want some silly uncles that probably brought death to her husband to get on her for whatever silly culture they have.

Guess the woman pick her son under arrangement while someone else she believes and would like to get along with stands aside cos... the culture didn't include him in the race or choice.


BUT if knowing the woman pick her son and for what ever reason they slept together, Oh my gosh!

I beg May God forgive them, for they do not know what they're doing.It's totally WRONG.

Peace!

Folks, this is one of the worst sections of culture.I've think over it again and again then came to a conclusion that this CANNOT BE TRUE.

Though any wrong doing that goes around in a community over a year will definitely become culture likewise the right ones.

Looking at it from the other side of life-as the culture implies, The woman might chose her son cos... she doesn't want some silly uncles that probably brought death to her husband to get on her for whatever silly culture they're practicing.

Guess the woman picked her son under arrangement while someone else she believes and would like to get along with stands aside cos... the culture didn't include him in the race.


BUT if knowing the woman pick her son and for what ever reasons they slept together, Oh my gosh! That's a death-role chain.

I beg May God forgive them, for they do not know what they're doing.It's totally WRONG.

This is one of the  most blantant lies of my life time. Why can't we know the name of the place to start with, why do we have to ask pple from Akwaibom, We all understand that this room is for fun and all that but not a place to peddle lies as if we all are fools. Probabaly we have lost our thinking faculty.
For the fact that almost everybody was shocked and  inquisitive to know where exactly it takes place, makes it an unforgivable lies. The bond that exist between a mother and her son is too strong, too sensitive, not a bond that would easily make a dick go up for a mom, God forbid "aru" tufiakwa. There is no culture or custom in Nigeria that atleast we Nigerians have not heard something about. I think we should asked the poster to tell us if that happens in his home place.

Brothers and Sisters let's not even accept this lies. The highest pple in the Bible could go was to marry their cousins and that was it . Let me also make this fact known for pple who are not Ibos, there is no tradition in Iboland that carries the view of allowing a widow to marry her son for any reason. no matter what.
