Bishop David Oyedepo’s daughter-in-law, Kemi Oyedepo has come out to say that if marriages are judged by glamourous weddings there won’t be many broken marriages. She recently revealed this via her social media page, and Nigerians have been reacting.
According to her, the truth is that there is way too much focus on how amazing a wedding should be these days and less emphasis on realities of marriage.
Kemi added that it is best for all intending couples to realize that running a family requires a lifetime, not a day.
Her words, “If how glamorous a wedding is has anything to do with how beautiful a marriage will be, there won’t be as many broken marriages as there are today.”
“Running a family requires a lifetime, not a day. There is way too much focus on how amazing a wedding should be these days, and less emphasis on the realities of marriage.”
“On a lot of wedding days, many brides are stressed out, grooms are irritated and anxious, family members are fighting all because of that one day! Don’t get caught up with all the fairytales and unrealistic expectations.”
“A lot of people cheering you on because of how grand your wedding should be, will go their way at the end of the day and leave you to handle the issues in your home by yourself.”
“When too much focus is on the wedding day, the attention you should give to the journey ahead is diverted. Be real. Be prayerful & spiritually alert. Put sensible plans in place. Your adversary, the devil doesn’t care about your wedding day; its your marriage he’s after! Don’t let all the glitz, glam, pictures and magazines blind your eyes from what really matters.”
“Absolutely have the wedding of your dreams (as long as you can afford it; even if you can afford it, it’s not a MUST) and enjoy your day or days! But please be more focused on having an even better marriage. Don’t have a “talk of the town” wedding at the expense of your marriage. That is called foolishness with a capital F. Seek godly counsel if you need it. You know I wish you God’s best! Blessed weekend! Cheers.”
