“Give Person Belle, Na Shortcut to Marriage Be That!” Lagosians Weigh in On the Most Valid Form of Solemnization of Marriage | Watch



BellaNaija Weddings are glamourous and exquisite. The richness of culture and class usually shines through every feature and we love sharing with you.

But what is the most important part of the wedding? For some, it is the solemnisation of the union; the pronouncement of two individuals as one.

In Nigeria, solemnization of a marriage can be done through traditional rites or it can be done according to religious preferences. The State also has the power to decree that two people are ‘man & wife’.

Odunayo of Battabox asks Lagosians which of these forms of solemnisation is most important. As always, the respondents had funny responses.

Check on it!

    Court/registry wedding and church wedding is one and the same as long as the church is a registered church that has to get the certificate they give you from the registry. The Nigerian registry can marry one man to different women because they cant go through the long heap of files to find out who is already married. So the most valid form of marriage would lie in the desire to stay married than in the marriage certificate.
