‘Kneeling to propose to a lady means handing over control to her’ – Pete Edochie (WATCH)

Veteran Nollywood Actor, Pete Edochie has criticized the act of getting on one knee to propose marriage. The actor said the western tradition is wrong and it is not a tradition accepted in Igbo culture.

The actor explained that kneeling in front of a lady in Igbo tradition means handing over the authority to her. He said it means she would become the head of the family.

Edochie said marriage in the Igbo tradition is when a lady gives her husband-to-be wine while kneeling. He said this tradition signifies that the man has been accepted by the lady as her husband.

Edochie stated that it is the lady that kneels before the husband, not vice versa.

He said he did not kneel to propose to his wife and he has been married for 50 years. He added that no one has ever settled disputes for them.
