possibility of having a boy in the future.

Most of the couples from this tradition want to select traditional east African wedding ceremonies, but most have an American wedding.
More couples incorporate the jumping the broom, practice into their weddings. This custom is invented during the period of slavery when
slaves are forbidden to marry. This is a way to express their commitment to one another. In African culture, they use brooms to remove evil
from their homes and families. Some others think that this custom is a way to reject the evil that prohibits their union.

    authority. In full marriage, the man pays the total price of the bride. With his father's help, he pays for the bride's family. The future
    social status of the family and children depends on this price only.
