African weddings are a family affair and involve the union of two lives, two families and sometimes two communities!
There are many different wedding traditions in the African continent and no two are exactly alike. In all
traditions the bride plays a special role and is treated with respect because she is a link between the
unborn and the ancestors.
A bride might eventually bear a very powerful child, so she is treated with respect. In some areas of East Africa
the groom and his family would move to the village of the bride and set up a new house there.
An African marriage can be very elaborate, involving feasting and dancing for days within a community, or they can be very simple,
or they can even be performed in huge marriage ceremonies involving many different couples.
Lobola African Marriage

scandalized if they did not adhere to this custom. On the surface, Lobola is a complex and very formal process of
negotiation between the two families to come to a mutual agreement of the price that the groom has to pay to marry

Mutual respect and dignity are woven into the process, and the love between the man and woman is expanded to include
the immediate and extended families.
