Invitation

  • Are you a happily married Igbo couple?

An Invitation to contribute to an anthology on Igbo Spouses

Did you ever hear your parents say, “I love you” to each other?  Yes! That’s a joke? Right?  How often do you say, “I love you” or even show affection to your spouse?  The truth is that Igbo people do not express love and affection in words but through deeds.  But it feels wonderful to hear those loving thoughts and words or better yet to read them.  When was the last time you wrote a love letter to your spouse?

Now you have an opportunity to do so.  Model Igbo couples are invited to pay tribute to their spouse in a book about Igbo spouses.  It is time to start destroying the perceptions about Igbo marriages.  Share your story. Tell us about how you met your spouse; what makes your spouse the joy of your life and how you sustain your marriage.  We need to provide models of how marriage can work for the future generations.

Essay should be no more than 10 pages, typed and double-spaced.
Send your essay and your picture with your spouse as an attachment to Pat Anekwe
