As times roll by we get to grow older and discover so many things about our society and culture that makes us question events going on around us. One that we will eye today is the Kneeling down to propose to a lady.
I know many especially ladies will find this offensive but hey it’s a general floor so all opinion is welcome. But first I must ask Is it in our culture ? 🤔Hmmm in as much as we love and cherish our women this is definitely not in our culture but an adaptation from another foreign culture which eats up our own culture and Tradition.
What I know for sure is that kneeling down to propose has not being heard of in all Nigerian custom or tradition. We no that mostly, the Igbo’s for instance , woman were given in marriage from childhood (betrothed) to the man so its wasn’t because of love … And today its women that kneel when giving drink too the man in traditional wedding has being the custom of Igbo for long and you can see that when women serve food too there husbands they had too kneel till the husband finish eating before they can leave. so it has being our culture before we started imitating the white people.
Honestly I don’t see it as our Tradition Pete Edochie said it… But our women are so carried away by it that they don’t want to believe that our tradition doesn’t endorse it.. I’m not saying it’s bad or an abomination but I’m saying it’s too hyped.
