It is therefore rational to assume that only cultures that have similarities in their cultures can happily intermarry. The larger the gap between tribal practices the more likely the marriage is to crumble.
Tribes that Make Good Intermarriages
Many Kenyans admit to intermarriage as the most proper was of integrating the 42 ethnic groups.
