Customary Marriage In Zambia

The fact that the cultural practices and norms are not written as law has created both advantages and disadvantages in respect of rights and duties of parties involved under customary marriage. Consequently, this has led to a number of disputes. 

This book is therefore a reference for harmonising some key cultural values to help balance the negatives and positives of customary marriages cutting across all tribe groups involved. 

The information presented in the book will encourage further research by law students and other researchers on family law. 

The book can also be used by other stake holders such as traditional adjudicators, marriage counsellors, social groups and individuals who have the duty of finding solutions to matrimonial cases. 

The book also shades light on different aspect of Zambian Culture, and how these have an impact on how different marriage ceremonies are conducted in Zambia.

Culture And Customs of Zambia

It’s a known fact that Zambia is one of the continent’s most peaceful countries. This goes back to the early days of independence when it played a vital role against imperialism, colonial domination and South African apartheid. 

Today it is a shining example of Africa’s democratization with its attendant successes and as well as setbacks. 

Zambia is one of the one of the most urbanized in Sub-Saharan Africa. 

This necessities the daily interaction of Zambia's diverse ethno-linguistic groups. Moreover, many families, more especially those found in the cities have been influenced and exposed to the media, technology and influences from the western world, from world-wide Internet right up to western music. 

The book shows how tradition and modernity conflict and combine in contemporary Zambia. 

It explores Zambia's cultural history and its particular endowments. The book looks at how traditional and modern life interact, and sometimes collide, especially through topics such as religion, gender roles and family, cuisine, the arts, literature, and more. 

It also examines the life and living of Zambians.
