DAILY LAW TIPS (Tip 359) by Onyekachi Umah, Esq., LLM. ACIArb(UK)


The two types of valid marriages in Nigeria, are: English Marriage (often referred to as Statutory, Court or Registry marriage) and Customary marriage (often referred to as Traditional, Native, Pure Religious or Cultural marriage).
There is a legally approved period of time for conducting a valid English marriage in Nigeria. Every valid English marriage must be conducted/celebrated (wedding) between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm in any day.

My authorities are sections 1 and 21 of the Marriage Act, 1914.
