Lenyalo: Marriage Cultures and Processes in Botswana: Past and Present is a collection of chapters that
delineates traditional and contemporary conventions, procedures, rituals, roles, and ceremonies pertaining
to marital unions among different ethnic groups in Botswana. The book also sheds light on how marriage
rites and formalities have changed over time, especially how marriage as an institution is buffeted by the
vagaries of modernity. The concluding section of the book offers a set of recommendations on how the
institution of marriage and the customary practices that sustain it can be recalibrated.
