Back then (~esp the igbo tribe) when a guy see's a lady walking or maybe going to fetch water in the streem and he likes her,he will find a nice position and stay,when she get close to the place he is staying,the guy will then aproach her with words like "nne" "asa" and start jisting with her as they walk. Note:if she dosn't like the guy the whole stuff ends that day! But if she likes him the whole jisting/friendship stuff continues. After days/months of friendship,the lady will start asking the guy "when will you meet my parent" etc. If guy is truely ready for marriage he will then organise his umu'nna or father with some presents and go to the girls house for introduction.After introduction during their wedding the lady will be given a cup of palmwine to locate her husband to be,when she finaly locate's him,she KNEELS down and offer him the palmwine of wich after he drinks he will put a token and lift her up. Notice:the groom was treated as a KING!
