Sharing husband with ‘co-wives’ – An interesting insight in Masaai tribe’s marriage structure [VIDEO]

"In our culture, love is a bit different. We live together well. We love each other and each other's children."

Maasai

Yayai is part of the Maasai tribe, one of the largest and best-known African tribes. One of the Maasai traditions that continue to live to this day is the custom of polygamy.

A successful relationship can only exist between two people, but that’s not how everyone around the world lives and thrives.

Recently, a YouTube travel vlogger, Eva Zu Beck, interviewed Yayai about marriage in Maasai culture.

Yayai told Beck, “In Maasai tradition, they will marry you off even if you don’t like it.”

Responding to a question on why do the Maasai men have many wives, Yayai, said, “Many wives mean that there will be many children for whom they get cows (increase the family wealth).

“I was my husband’s first wife, after a while, the second wife came, and then they brought the third wife. We all get along very well.”

She added, “In our culture, love is a bit different. We live together well. We love each other and each other’s children. Me and my co-wives, we talk, we spend time together even without our husband. so yes, it is different

Yayai continued, “This side of our culture is changing. Young people don’t want to follow this tradition anymore. It shows they don’t want to be in polygamous marriages anymore.”

I Share My Husband with 2 Other Wives (Maasai Marriage Story)Yayai is part of the Maasai tribe, one of the largest and best-known African tribes. One of the Maasai traditions that continues to live to this day is the custom of polygamy (or, more specifically, polygyny). As someone with a European upbringing, I've always been taught that a successful relationship can only exist between two people… But that's not how everyone around the world lives and thrives.I've decided to ask Yayai about what marriage is like in her Maasai culture, and she really opened my eyes to the fact that there is no single recipe for a good relationship (except, maybe, to respect your partner!). I'm hoping you've also come here with an open mind and without judgment – because even if you may not agree with someone's way of life, you should always find a way to respect it (if they're not doing anything to harm you).Stephanie's life on Instagram: https://instagram.com/masai_story

  • Media plays a big role in changing people’s thoughts.

    So a good practice is going to be discontinued because media kept showing that polygamy is bad.

    In fact lesser the marriages, more the adultery. And this is what satanic forces need.
