The purpose of this study is to investigate the attitudes of Tanzanian women towards marriage rituals. Data utilized came from three sources: personal interactive observations, the responses from focus discussion sessions and conversations conducted while the researcher was in Tanzania. Findings show that wedding rituals in contemporary, urban settings are a unique combination of traditional Tanzanian culture and aspects borrowed from outside influences. The study also looks at the impact of education, urbanization, occupation, ethnic group and religion on the attitudes of women living in a changing society.
