    • Matriarchal society exists in archipelago of 50 islands off Guinea-Bissau
    • Missionaries bring new concept of men proposing, causing strife in families
    • Women build the homes: Once completed, couple moves in, officially wed

    Re: Here, women propose marriage and men can't refuse

    Like all men on this African isle, Carvadju Jose Nananghe knew exactly what it meant. Refusing was not an option. His heart pounding, he lifted the steaming fish to his lips, agreeing in one bite to marry the girl.

    "I had no feelings for her," said Nananghe, now 65. "Then when I ate this meal, it was like lightning. I wanted only her."...
    I think he may have left out some of the details.
    I vaguely remember the divorce ritual, it had something to do with cat entrails and shark teeth.
