The Catholic bishops of Onitsha Ecclesiastical Province
in their joint Pastoral Letter to mark the first centenary
celebrations of the advent of Catholic Church in Eastern
Nigeria call for an intense catechesis as a way of deepening
the faith of the huge number of Catholics recorded in the
first century of the Church1 . Undoubtedly marriage and
family life are some of the institutions at the centre of this
intense catechesis. Hence this work has been proposed as a
survey of the traditional Igbo marriage and family life with
the view of finding out how it can be used as a point of
catechesis on conjugal love and ends of Christian marriage.
