In Ivory Coast, for example, the status of women has been gradually improving since the middle of the twentieth century, with various pieces of legislation being passed allowing women to divorce their husbands, enabling couples to marry without parental consent, and in 1983 allowing women to control more of their property after marriage.
Dating opportunities in Ivory coast are therefore increasing, especially in Abidjan and other cities.
African dating opportunities are very plentiful nowadays both for Africans and non-Africans.
For non-Africans wishing to meet African brides, the Internet is the way to go.
Also in Nigeria, online dating has become more prevalent than anywhere else in Africa, as there is now more internet access in urban areas.
