Youth Advised To Make Better Preparation Towards Marriage

Chairman of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Churches (GPCC) and Asokwa Pentecost Area Head, Apostle James Smith Gyimah, has advised ready-to-marry youths and singles in general to be very much cautious when planning and choosing their life partners.

He said the large number of recorded divorce cases shortly after most marriage ceremonies is due to improper consideration in the selection of a partner.

According to him, it is better people concentrate much on the negative aspects of their partners during friendship than focusing on their good side alone.

"People preparing to marry should be much interested in the bad sides of their opposite sex as well, instead of focusing and developing interest in only the good side of them", he stated.

This, according to him, would help individuals to test their patience against bad attitudes and if they could confront it.

Apostle James Smith made these remarks, in an exclusive interview with ModernGhana on the recent 2013-2014 marriage and divorce statistics, released by the Department of Marriage and Legal Registrar covering the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) in the Ashanti region.

He said, the act of pretending towards partners during dating was a major contributing factor that had caused many fresh marriages, getting stuck in the mud.

"I don't understand why people hide their characters because of marriage, and I tell you this will later reveal itself and cause a big mess in the marital journey".

The statistics indicated that, the declarations of customary divorce at the law courts increased from 200 in 2009 to 268 in 2013, whiles it decreased to 150 in 2014 last year; and the dissolution of customary marriage from the registrar at KMA, increased from 5 in 2007 to 21 in 2010, whiles it declined to 8 between 2011 and 2014.

"People should not be driven by lust into marriages, but rather, employ lots of passionate love for each other that would help strengthen the marriage.

He noted most marriages are not holding as expected because, partners always try to hide their feelings from each other.

"These behaviours when revealed along the line, create problems for couples,” the respected man of God stated.

He advised couples to submit to counseling prior to marriage and after marriage.

"Prayer is a powerful tool Christians need in marriages since it helps to boost confidence and trust as well as bringing God into all situations," he said.
