Is Co-parenting Possible In Nigeria?

With the rise in affairs amongst married people do you think co-parenting is possible? Co-parenting can be in the form of:

Husband, wife and baby mama
Husband, wife and baby daddy
OR a scenario in which the parents of a child(ren) are both remarried.

Factors like bitterness, unhealthy relationship amongst parents, horrible break up, hatred from the married partner(s) to the baby mama/ daddy and other factors may impact on the child(ren) negatively.

Healing and forgiveness are necessary to have a happy blended family. All parties involved need to deliberate if their dislike for one another is greater than the love for their child(ren).

Well,in this present day Nigeria,I don't think it is possible for that to happen... The unity and peace needed for all parties to work together to raise the children seems nonexistent in this situation.

It can't work in African settings, our culture is against the practise.

It is exactly for reasons surrounding these types of circumstances of birth for children (which is OLD, VERY OLD), that I became a convert to African traditional marriages complete with its polygyny and male pivots.

In the real traditional Igbo marriage for example, (not the current types they conduct in cities, complete with cakes, lol ), EVERY child has a legitimate home -a home he or she can lay legitimate claims to, where abuse and name callings like "Bastard" never happens, and a home where there is social support system to raise the child.

In that system, a woman's child(ren) belong automatically to her father, unless the man who got her pregnant performed marriage rites. All children she bares this way automatically belong to her father; the men that got her pregnant have ZERO traditional claims to the children. That right gets transferred to them after completing marriage rites.

In that system, nearly all women get married, unless she and her family decided otherwise for peculiar family reasons.
Marriage and children are traditional prerogatives of FAMILIES, not government.

This is part of why I support political restructuring of Nigeria that would enable different peoples of Nigeria to create laws that work for them in their traditional geographic locations, instead of laws imposed by Abuja that destroy people's cultures which developed over thousands of years.
