Forced marriage in African tradition

 
 Forced marriage in African tradition

In marriage, once a man and a woman are joined in marriage, there is no going back especially in African tradition. However, it is still in African tradition that forced marriages exist, making the women victims of bad luck.
 
 It would surprise you to know however,that somewhere in Nigeria, a community chooses a damsel who then becomes the wife of their king called Eruogie whether both of them love each other or not. You could imagine the effects of their denial,their emotional trauma, depression, pretence to form love,and trying hard to make love to somebody their body body and soul never desired.

African tradition subdues their people especially their women to accept serious life issues that are against their will and wishes and this to nature is injurious abuse!!!
