All societies have families, but their form varies greatly across time and space. Traditional African family patterns are slowly but progressively being transformed as a result of the process of modernization which is exhibited through trends like urbanization. Family patterns that were the norm in traditional rural African societies are gradually being changed and relieved by modern values. African family patterns are increasingly faced with the challenge and pressure between traditional and modern family values and structure. However, the most popular trend is that of the prevalence of family patterns that are increasing merging traditional and modern marriage norms or practices.
