Stirring the pot - Nigeria

Reading all the posts - successes and disappointments, I am curious. Me and my wife spoke about it but want to see some evidence. Now this might stir up a hornet's nest but we are all adults here (I hope). If it is too controversial, then let it drop.

Where are most of your spouse's coming from?

West - Yoruba

South South - Edo/Delta state (many groups such as Ijaw, Bini, Esan)

South East - Igbo

North - Hausa

Disclosure, me and wife are Igbo. Thanks.

My theory is that most are Igbo. Good and bad. I am not looking to say one group is more likely to have success and another to have disappointments. I might be biased since that is the group I am mostly around so I want to see if I am right. Hopefully, this won't cause a "census" issue here on VJ (inside joke for Naija people).

I think there are differences between the tribes and their views of relationships. I am 8th generation American raised in a small (>400 ) town. My SO is Igbo . I have dated both Igbo and Yoruba. I feel they are different in culture and both are wonderful in their own ways.

I don't think this was meant to get into who is better than who, I think we all learned from the past that tribalism is not a good idea to promote.

However as a social getting to know you so we can understand each other better as a brother or sister I see no problem, or a pure

curiosity of the geographical distribution on this board.

Anyway I am not in the poll either so I will slink my future lone " Mende tribe wife self " off to bed.

Cheers :P

As a Nigerian, I for one understands where the OP is coming from. although am yoruba and had thought about it, thinking most Nigerian SO's here are from the Igbo tribe. But been on VJ for some years and been able to talk with a few of VJ naija members, with the fact that U can put together the screen name of some of the VJ members to give u an idea of where in nigeria their SO is from. I found out it is close between the igbo and yoruba tribe.

My EX is from the Yoruba tribe. My Nigerian friends called him a Lagos Boy after we split. Is that also an inside joke?

I'm thoroughly convinced that my EX's behavior had nothing to do with custom, culture or tribal issues. Even his own people couldn't understand what he was doing and why. His were his own personal worldview issues. Hope this helps.
