Grandmothers play a role in maintaining culture by nurturing their grandchildren so
that they grow up to value traditional morals and beliefs. For example, they could
raise the girls to believe and accept the traditional female role, which is, unfortunately,
one of dependence on the man as a breadwinner, while her responsibility is to care for
the family; this contradicts new feminist beliefs which emphasise independence. The
essence of the grandmother’s role in this scenario is to ensure that she creates a
balance between the African culture and the Western culture; so that the girl grows up
having grasped the concepts of the modern woman yet still appreciating a woman’s
role in the traditional society. Thus, cultural beliefs are somewhat maintained.

He was also a wife-beater.

Many mistake courtship for marriage, dating, and several other relationships, which eventually brings about future regrets. No doubt, times are changing, and the approach to find a wife is also fast-changing, from the era of our great grandparents in which the method of getting a wife was almost like a kidnap to the more modern erroneous trial marriage.

Many new couples become disappointed when, after a few months into the marriage, they begin to witness disagreements and misunderstandings. The expectation usually is to experience bliss from the onset. Courtship and marriage are not always the same. Falling in love is not the same thing as being in love.
