Challenging the Tradition:Understanding Nigerian Parents’ Pressure to Marry After Unplanned Pregnancy.

The practice of forcing young women into marriage, especially in Nigeria, after an unplanned pregnancy is a complex issue rooted in cultural traditions and lack of communication. However, by promoting education, encouraging dialogue, and fostering community support, we can challenge this practice and empower young women to make choices that agree with their aspirations and well-being. It is noteworthy for parents to recognize that missteps are a part of life and that alternative solutions exist that can lead to happier and more fulfilling lives for their daughters, as well as guaranteeing parents’ lifelong rest of mind over the lives of their daughters.
