Hard as some in the West may think, in many African communities children are highly valued and are considered the wealth of the family. This is because most Africans believe that as long as there are children their communities would never disappear. Thus their customs and traditions would continue to flourish long after their own demise (Mbiti, 1989). It is for this reason that many people within the culture tend to pity rich childless folks. What would such people leave behind when they are gone, is a question some ponder. This situation of materially well-off people with no children sometimes drives relatives to intervene in people's relationships and lives in strange ways.
