Marriage Institution in Ekpeye Culture: Oral Information
This work offers a position paper on traditional marriage institution in Ekpeye culture. Although, women are increasing their involvement in economic, political and educational roles, the women in this study are explained from the perspectives of the roles they play at the home front. These roles include the importance of a mother, wife and help mate.
Roles associated with work, social, community and religion rank less important to this study. Basically, the attitudes in this study are traditionally conceptualized, limiting the woman to a home based institution of marriage.
