LoooolI found out a very old, semi forgotten Marehan culural saying recently which sort of has to do with types of Marehan by generalization.
The more northern Marehan essentially today's "Casbudwaaq inc" (bah-Ogaadeen, Celi, etc) used to say "Majeerteen guursad iyo Daarood guursad, Majeerteen guursad keenaa badnaa" to explain why they are more allegedly little shorter than other Marehan allegedly this is why they started to marry more into Marehan in recent generations
The eastern Marehan or what we call Dhabat and Bangeelle inc (Wagardhac, rer Siyasd Hussein) used to sayHawiye guursad iyo dhaqlo guursad Hawiye guursad keenaa badnaa "explain why they are darker than other Marehan allegedly [essentially they were at war with Hawiye so much girls were constantly being exchanged as "xaal/compensation" to aettle all the constant conflict]
The southern Marehan who were what we would call Balanbale inc but include Gedo as well (reer Ugaas Shermarke) reer Axmed for example would be rer Balanbale today if there was anh left in Mudug) used to say "Bari guursad iyo galbeed guursad, galbeed guursad keenaa badnaa" to explain why they were better looking than other Marehan allegedly [and the direction distinction was in effect even within them so to the westerost Marehan reer, Bari included every Marehan to his east..he would rather marry his immediate neighbor to the West)
This is why your rer abti OGAADEEN was the most prized clan to marry from of all for historical Marehan...They were WESTERN, they are DAROOD (and not MJ), and they loved DHAQLO iyo dhaanto
Ina adeer reer dalal too much cambuulo ka buuxda..naga daa..cidaas Ohio ku so bartaySmile Like Sunrise
Rarely do I see Rer Ugas Sharmarke or Reer Dalal girls who ain't qurux.
Your Awoowe has a point even me ma guursankaro gabar gaaban. I love height in a woman.
In terms of marriage Rer Koshin have more insular tendencies. But pre Somalia we were more open. Alot of us like other sub clans have MJ or OG Grandparents or Great-grandparents. Rer Koshin men are usually dark unless mixed.
