The Hamer tribe found in Southern Ethiopia is reportedly the most famous tribe to maintain “patience” within marriage.
It is said that before a man can give place for marriage, he has to test the woman he wants to marry to know her ability to endure stress and pleasure in marriage.
It is alleged that the measure is for the woman to look for a good cain by herself and hand it over to the man, and then the man whips up enough strokes on the woman and she’s forbidden to show any signs of pain or even cry.
If she succeeds, then the woman will have a reputation for patience and a great place will be given to her.
