The subject of marriage is a very interesting one in African Culture. Unlike the West, traditional factors play a key role in determining the stability of an African home. One of such is children. Many African cultures believe that children are direct gifts from God. Hence, there is a general notion concerning childbirth among couples in any home. There is a widely held view among Africans that the completion of any home requires the presence of kids. This in itself gives little consideration to medical related issues as it affects the inability of a couple to bear kids. It also gives little consideration to the option of adoption. With the former, traditional beliefs still view it as an indication of a curse from the gods. The subject has been known to lead to breakdown in marriages. Furthermore, this has led to desperate measures beyond the scope of this piece.
