Twitter User Proudly Shares How She Defied Customary Practice Of Kneeling Before Her Spouse During Marriage Engagement

A Twitter user recently stirred a lot of debate yesterday after she shared a detailed thread of events during her marriage engagement.

The lady presumably from the Yoruba tribe revealed that against popular beliefs and customs and in agreement with her and her now-husband, decided not to engage in the long-standing cultural practice where brides are required before their partners as a sign of ‘submission’. She tweeted:

Speaking of submission, during my Yoruba engagement, my husband and I told the Alagas to not use that word or ask me to kneel for him. Everyone told me it wouldn’t be possible because, culture. But guess whose knees didn’t touch the ground? pic.twitter.com/JzzwRkhlgB

She also said narrated that her sister also made similarly bold moves when she got married more recently stating that her sibling ‘warned’ family members against using the term “ile oko (husband’s house).

My sister’s wedding was earlier this week and she also warned against using the term “ile oko” (husband’s house). Everyone is setting their house rules and removing the bs one act at a time.
Looking forward to subversive “no wedding” family members lol

As usual, conversations like this stir up debates as many people called her out for her ‘boldness’ to disregard age-long traditional practices while some more commended her for the courage to stamp her foot in other get what she wanted for herself.

What do you make of her decision, do you think she took her personal beliefs over traditional practices too far? Let us know in the comment section.
