ABSTRACT

The study examines childlessness and its socio-cultural influence on married couples in Kogi State’s idah urban community. The study looked into measures to relieve pressure from both the family and society as a whole, with a special focus on the causes and effects of infertility in society. For this study, the data gathering instrument was a questionnaire. This study used a cross-sectional survey research design as its sampling technique. A total of one hundred (100) people were chosen at random. Tables and percentages were used to analyze the data. Following the study of the data, it was discovered that programming such as marriage forum in idah urban community might assist childless couples in reducing feelings of inferiority complex. There was a substantial association between childless couples and leadership role, as well as a negative attitude of childless couples regarding child adoption. The study’s findings demanded a number of recommendations, including that childless couples should seek medical treatment together rather than allowing one partner to bear the burden alone, among others.
