Marriage in the village of Bukavu in the Eastern DR Congo

Hello, the girls that marry here are first engaged between a girl and a boy. The marriages are conventionally between two people, girl and boy. The two young people announce to their families that they would like to marry. And then the family of the boy brings the dowry to the family of the girl. That is to say they bring the rope of the cow as long as is the dowry that was asked of by the girl’s family. If they ask for three cows, they bring three cows. But the girl that does not study does not have a dowry like those who do study. There are always differences. The astonishing thing is that there are a lot of marriages and a lot of divorces. Often I ask myself why does that happen? It is said that often about half of them end in divorce. Often girls marry because others influence them and that is not good. You have to listen to your heart. There are other things to do and you are not limited to choose the other. It is not good my sisters. Thank you. Email kikasylvie@yahoo.fr

Nous te félicitons pour cette réflexion je sais bien que le mariage est devenu un phénomène social très intéressant à Bukavu et tant de filles veulent se comparer avec ses amies, collègues camarades,… or chacune d’entre nous a ses visions, ses rêves pour continuer les processus de la vie.
Ce vrais qu’il y a beaucoup de mariages enregistrés dans nos trois communes à Bukavu et les divorces sont aussi égaux et d’ailler plus que le mariage a cause de ces mariages par immutation sans oublier les mariages, précoces qui est devenu un fléau en R.D.Congo.
