  1. I dnt tink its ideal to marry witout consent from parents esp in our contemporary ibo tradition, marriage is like contract or covenant bw d families, it goes witout sayin dat no man is an island so u need family at times to watch out for ur family. Its not best to ostracize them.


  2. “Parents’ consent” is a condition precedent for a successful marriage.I dnt think its ideal to marry witout their consent.can affect ones live in one way or the other#


  3. #word# dnt even try it @ all. There ll always be a way to penetrate ur parents n convince dem, bt if dt dsnt work, no need going ahead with d marriage. Marriage is no bed of roses, its full of ups n downs. Ur parents re where u fall bak to if need be. Dnt venture into marriage without parent’s consent


  4. And what if the person who you feel you’ll be happier spending your life with is the one they refuse to give their consent to…???


    1. God bless u Kakaoffiah, I lik people who tinks outside d box. Will 1 stop demsef 4rm being happy bcs of lack of consent? Yes, it is gud 2 hv consent bt if consent is denied especially wtout a gud reason den i sch shudnt b ignored. I conclude wt ds, wat of orphans, whose consent shud dey get, dts y consent is important, bt nt a necessity 4 an ideal marriage especially in adult cases.


  5. I think it depends on the sitution,if they give you a genuine reason then you shouldn’t try it,but if its a flimsy reason lik the other family not being up to standard or they have someone they think is ideal for you,u can go ahead!wit time n prayers they will accept the person


  6. It is not IDEAL.

    You should be able to make effective decisions. You should have a track record of making such decisions. This will make your parents more trusting of your decisions.
