The two major religions in Africa are Islam and Christianity, yet their traditions are very different. For example, the Muslim dress code differs greatly from the Christian dress code.
Muslim women’s clothing covers nearly every portion of their body, yet Christians are allowed to dress however they desire. Previously, Muslim women were not permitted to marry men who did not share their religious beliefs; however, this is changing as an increasing number of Muslim women married Christian men.
The following are some of the reasons for this: Polygamy is an Islamic tradition that enables men to marry multiple wives, in contrast to Christianity’s monogamy.
Most women will prefer monogamy because it allows them to develop a stable family and currently helps to avoid promiscuity and disease spread. Christian males are typically seen to be romantic by nature.
Christian men are supposed to be romantics who will go out of their way for the woman they love; who wouldn’t want to be with such a gentleman? Christian men know how to treat their female companions with dignity. People believe men are trustworthy and kind because Christianity emphasizes monogamy, especially if they are madly in love with them.
Stability Monogamy allows women to build a stable household, and their children will benefit from their parents’ and fathers’ unselfish care during their youth. When they approach adulthood, male adolescents learn from their fathers how to be a man and how to respect their female companions.
The ability to make a decision is a fundamental right. In Christianity, women have the freedom to do whatever they desire; for example, they can wear whatever clothes they like.
This means that Christian males will not limit their female partners’ wardrobe choices.
