dc.description.abstractSisala marriage is similar to marriage among other tribal groups in northern Ghana. The agnatic group lineage is the important unilineal descent group vis-a-vis marriage and marriage payments are paid by the groom's lineage to the lineage or the bride. This is not only a structural ideal, but a reality of social organization. Patrilocal residence facilitates the unity of the agnatic descent group while it strains a woman's patrilineal ties.en
