INTRODUCTION

 

There are many shades of interest in Nigeria due to different tribes, states, towns and villages that makes up the country. Every individual has certain interest of needs both in material and emotional. The different interest gives rise to the different type of marriage that abounds in Nigeria.

 The types of marriage found in Nigeria are polygamous, monogamy extended family to mention a few. This indulgence has to do with the needs and status of the individual.

This study is prompted by the practice of polygamous in this country and its effect on the educational performance of a child.

Polygamous marriage is a system of marriage in which a man maries more than one wife at a time. The number of wives which ranges from two to many or may not depend on the status. Religious and economic capability of the man. This form of marriage was given rise to what sociologists often refer to as the extended family. Thus Bell and Vogal {1980} define extended family as any grouping broader than the nuclear family which is related by descent marriage of adoption. This is a common practice in Nigeria the varying structure of any family from society to society has brought this practice.

In the past polygamous marriage system was practice in Nigeria because the main occupation was farming.

According to Hans Hasabaun (1976) some of the contemporary reasons bought forward in support of polygamous are as follows;

a)   Where woman still have to bear the burden of work in compound and field thee polygamous is often regarded as a help.

b)   Polygamous is further thought to be a solution when tradition calls for a longer period abstain from sexual relationship during breast feeding.

c)   Childlessness or the value of having many children in general

d)   Polygamous takes case of surplus of women, that is prevents prostitution given unmarried woman protection and new homes for widows.

e)   Polygamous is status symbol

However, due to the level of technological advancement and he need to give educational training to children the polygamous. It is a prestigious club for only those who are fit in view of the fact that the polygamous structure has not help in steaming the astronomical population of Nigeria with its attendant problems {evil} such as children juvenile delinquency and other known child – crimes.

The question is then asked, has it anything to do with children from the nuclear family or children from the polygamous family.

Thus children from polygamous family have not faired better in their educational performance because of the issue raised above which range from lack of inadequate instructional materials.
