As young people, many of us assume that love is so blind that we cannot see through it especially when it comes to inter-tribal marriages. Lagos has broken many jinx in terms of marriage because of her cosmopolitan status.
There is a young man from another tribe in Nigeria who intends to get married to a lady from another tribe. The lady has started picking up the language through gestures, body movement etc while the relatives of the guy felt that they can still “cheat” her with the language. This caused some rift between them.
Have you asked yourself, can I make my folks to communicate with her effectively despite the difference? Can I carry her along at all times? How do I not make her feel neglected? The person might be pretending not to understand your language to gauge your true love.
