Hey Divas,

Intra-ethnic marriages is one of the marriages that has fostered better understanding in marriages and the nation as a whole. The understanding of the same cultures and tribe has helped reduce the rate of misunderstanding and divorces worldwide. The union of two people from the same ethnic group has so much benefits; you get to eat the same kind of food, better understanding of conversations and discussions and so many more. Anyways, I’m all for inter-ethnic marriages, hence my quest for my Igbo husband and I’m so sure you already know the reason; its all because of their many soups.

A perfect and fun wedding Ruth and Uwaifo had as they got hitched to each other in the traditional and white weddings. It was a case of Igbo meet Igbo. Ruth was beautifully adorned in beads with black bustier and red rose pleated black wrapper while uwaifo was also adorned with beads,  simple trousers and shirt style for their traditional wedding. A typical igbo and fun wedding they had as family and friends graced their wedding. Lovely Ruth wore a beautiful high necked wedding dress with short sleeves and a lovely silver tiara while Uwaifo was in a black suit with red waistcoat and black bow tie for their white/church wedding.

From the Madivas team, we wish them a happy married life

Weddings are no doubt beautiful moments that are to be enjoyed with family, friend and well-wishers. They are the symbol of love to show to everyone how special that person is to you. But wedding is not a thing to rush into. It takes time, patience and endurance to have a happy home. My one advice to every lady out there is to endeavor to know your partner well before taking it further into a lifelong commitment of marriage.
