Background to the Study
The word marriage is as old as the origin of man himself. It is a total commitment and it is not the same as a trial marriage are subjected to exploitation and abuse, especially woman who are taught to desire scenery in relationship.
Marriage which can be explained as an institution between a man and a woman are united and live together as husband and wife. The marriage of a youth in ancient society was parts of the responsibilities of his parents. The young man had no choice as to the choice of wife in some cases a wife was married to him at a time. He could not accept to keep a wife. And all maintenance was done by the parents. Such marriage were regarded to be sacred and respected by the spouses. Parents were unnecessarily getting as to where there son was going to get his wife from.
Marriages arranged by parents on the basis of family friendship tries rarely broke up in the past. Divorce which is the legal ending of marriage was also very rare in the past because of the penalty associated with person fidelity and the fear offending elders of both families in Nigeria, there are clearly defined types of marriage. We have the church or statutory marriage those performed at mosques and marriage constituted according to relative law and customs of any ethic groups.
Ledlon (1998, pg 34-35), stated that marriage which is the joining of a man and woman is not only a physical union in order to produce children but involves in its highest form of union, body, mind and spirit.
Marriage is one of the most essential steps that must be taken by every fortunate human being.
