In Africa, woman is not Adam's rib, at most, she is his shoulders and spinal column. For the vast majority of African women, even today, in the cities and in the countryside, their greatest dream is to get a good husband and have many children.
Marriage ceremonies within Africa vary greatly between countries due to the diversity of culture and religion throughout the continent. Africa has a population of over 1.2 billion people spread throughout 52 countries.
In some West African countries, polygamy is recognized and regulated by the civil law that allows a man to marry up to four women under certain conditions.
This documentary takes a look at different cases as beauty contests, polygamy and arranged marriages.
