Greetings Mr, Jack,
I am Writing regarding your Fiance Fadeela due to the marriage rite as well i want you to know that Traditional Marriage Ceremony is a 3 days traditional marriage held to signify that one is ready for commitment..It ensures that the community becomes aware of the woes and feelings that each other has for one another and therefore as custom requires or demands ..there must be a traditional marriage for any woman in the community before the wedding ceremony itself occurs..Even though we are in a community where superstition and beliefs are respected the Kingdom of the Almighty God is also respected.In order not to violate the Traditional norms and customs of a particular community the Chiefs and priests of the community where the woman is are allowed to go on a 2 days ceremony to perform their rites to ensure the woman into the correct mood of commitment.Anyway,the church is also honored and given the Sabbath day to use to ask for God's guidance and protection unto the woman as she is entering into a commitment.It occurs as a right to send a girl into Puberty and all those women who get the chance to pass through the traditional marriage are given due respect and can be invited into the seat of Elders of the community as It serves as purity to make the individual clean.Anyway as I am also a member of the Board of Elders of the community and wants the best for my Granddaughter I will want to advise to pass through the Traditional marriage.Also .there is an announcement to the whole community and make clear to the notice that the woman who is going through the traditional marriage can't be dated by anyone and must be respected in the society..To avoid bringing of Disgrace and Shame unto the community any woman who does not pass through that stage and gives birth is regardless in the society and sometimes banished from the society depending on how serious the offense on the Gods are..It also serves as the place where the Family members,loved ones and friends can go ahead and give their final verdict and give blessings to the one.Since I guess you too are planning to be together one day,I might not have the chance to witness your wedding ceremony as I am growing older day by day.I will want to have the opportunity to give her my last blessings and make known what her late father had in store for her before he got killed .I am therefore asking you whether you want her to go through the process and I want you to know that is the norms and customs of the society so I dont have the power or mandate to go against it so all I can tell is that you join hands and go through the Traditional Marriage.and its a must to do it I will like to ask when do you want the traditional Marriage ceremony to take place as this month the Chiefs, and priests are kind of free and also the church has not announced any marriage yet so we could hurry up and fix a date for it..I am thinking if you can agree to let it start this week or Next week Friday if we are still alive by the grace of the Almighty God.I give you both my blessings and wish you a very happy and prosperous marriage with lovely and wonderful kids..God be with you and guide you in anything that you wanna do.I will talk to the chief and let them know about the Marriage and also get all items that will be necessary for the wedding and then I will let Fadeela or I myself will let them get known to you.Anyway let me get Fadeela for you as I am feeling sleepy and wants to go to bed soon..Have a very nice time and God be with you too..
