How to be a bride in Nigeria
- by admin
The first thing you need to do is find a place to marry.
“You can’t just be a woman in Nigeria,” says Naima Gomes, the president of the Nigerian Association of Marriage Counselors (Nammo), a group that helps couples find a marriage partner.
You need to have the financial means and the desire to marry the right person.
“It takes a lot of time and effort to find a partner.
We’re talking about around three years to find the right man,” she says.
You can’t simply ask anyone.
If you do, chances are you’ll be rejected by the people around you.
You also need to know what you’re looking for.
“If you look for a woman who wants to be married, you need an understanding of her character and her values,” says Muthana Olu, a marriage consultant and president of Marriage in Nigeria.
“And if you want to be loved, you have to know her personality, her values and her personality,” he adds.
“For instance, a woman with a high value for education and a love of her family would be a good partner.”
You need someone who will be a part of your family and a friend.
You want to marry someone who’s close to you and who shares your values.
Marriage is more than just a relationship between two people.
It can also be a way to give your children a better future.
Naimas husband, Ibrahim Ibrahim, is from Lagos.
He and his wife, Fina, are expecting their first child together.
Ibrahim says he didn’t marry a woman until he met his wife at university.
“We had no intention of getting married at that stage, but I met her through the social network and I was impressed by her.
She was a great woman,” he says.
Ibrahim is a teacher in Lagos and says he feels that marriage is an important way to keep family together.
“I’ve been married for 15 years now, and it has helped me to understand my own mother and to have a stronger relationship with my own children.
I’m not ashamed to tell you, we have two daughters, and we’ve all been together for so long that I feel proud to say we have a daughter and two sons,” he said.
The only thing you have left to do, he adds, is to “feel a connection to your partner.”
Marriage can also help you stay connected to family.
“Marriage is a big part of my family.
I have two younger brothers and two younger sisters who are married.
I know the people in my family well, and the two children are close to my family,” Ibrahim says.
But I felt that I had lost my relationship with her. “
As I got older, I realized that she is very smart and a very good person.
But I felt that I had lost my relationship with her.
I had a very strong attachment to my brother and my sister,” he continued.
Marriage can help you develop more intimate connections with your family.
You should find a mentor.
If your family is not ready to accept your marriage, you can look for help from a family member.
“People who have the ability to give advice are also the people who can support you to get married and have a good life,” says Ibrahim.
The key, he says, is having someone who can help guide you through your marriage.
“The more you know about yourself, the more you can identify with your partner and give you support,” he concludes.
For the first time, marriage is now a choice for many Nigerians.
They can now choose to marry in their own country.
For some, the choice is a long time coming.
For others, it’s already here.
“My mother was born in Nigeria and she was born married to a man.
I never thought I would marry someone else until I met someone,” Ibrahim explains.
“Now I can choose to live my life in Nigeria, and I feel like I’m more free now.”
