Why marriages fail nowadays – Apostle Johnson Suleman
Nigerian clergyman, Apostle Johnson Suleman has explained why marriages of these days no longer last, compared to the marriages of the past.
While preaching a sermon in his church, the general overseer of Omega Fire Ministries disclosed that many marriages are failing because of the excessive use of social media platforms.
According to Apostle Suleman, most youths depend on the advice they get from social media and what they see online to manage their marriages. Adding that they have completely ignored the advice from their elderly ones.
“The problem with Africa, Europe, and America, is that technology has made us feel so independent. That is why marriages don’t last again,” he said.
Apostle Johnson Suleman stated that in the past before a woman or a man will get married into a family, proper investigations will be done by both families to ascertain which family their child will be marrying into. But now due to a lot of changes, most of these acts are ignored by the youth.
“When you go to your father and you want to marry, they will check the girl. They will do a thorough investigation. They will check her father’s side. They will check her mother’s side. They will check how their family is. Then they will say ‘My son, you can’t marry that girl.’ And you will agree,” he said.
He added that most marriages do not last because no further checks are done before the institution of marriage between parties.
“In those days, marriages last 50 years. In the days of love, the days of I’m in love, marriages cannot last 3 years,” he lamented.
