My Cousin is getting married. 

We had the registry wedding today. Tomorrow is the Engagement which is actually the traditional wedding. Then Saturday is the Church Wedding and reception. 

The average Nigerian goes through these three “separate” wedding ceremonies. We all know they are needless and one suffices. However, culture is just so damn hard to change. 

Quite a number of us (my contemporaries) are fully aware of this absurdity and have had this conversation several times. Each time someone gets married, Culture wins.
