Abstract:

In a 5 × 3 × 2 factorial design, patterns of Nigerian attitudes toward the husband-wife family relationship were investigated. The subjects were 457 university students selected from different faculties in such a way as to represent three major cultural groups in Nigeria. The purpose of the study was to determine the effects of cultural group membership, educational orientation and sex on the subjects' attitudes toward the husband-wife family relationship. The results showed that subjects from the northern culture and those in the faculties of education and social sciences tended to maintain more traditional views than other subjects. Strong Koranic school and home socialization influences on the subjects from the north, and the reinforcing influences of the training colleges on Nigerian traditional perception of the role of women in the family were discussed as responsible for the observed views and attitudes of the Nigerians toward man-woman family relationships.
