A Guide to Customary Marriage (Paperback)
Our culture and tradition are fading away with great speed. As one of our culture's components and ingredients, the original procedure for customary marriage is seriously on the verge of collapse. The practice of our traditional marriage procedures is diminishing by you and me mainly because of the introduction of western ideologies, and also by self-denial, our idleness, negligence, copy and paste ideology, abandonment of our vernacular, unwillingness to learn and teach others, and many more vices. We have smothered important traditions for so long and in many diverse ways. If it continues, our children and future generations will create a new chapter of culture because the original prescribed ones will no longer be available for them to use.
Keeping our culture isn't limited to the Jorquelleh Kpelle tribe but the rest of the 16 tribes in Liberia. This book is a start. A Guide to Customary Marriage Among the Jorquelleh Kpelle People will be necessary for generations to come.
