Ghanaian gospel musicians often face more criticisms when compared to their counterparts in the secular circles.
Being a field related to religion, Christianity especially, artistes are usually held to high moral standards by fans even in private matters like marriage.
For this reason, any marital troubles arising from a gospel musician's camp gets a lot of attention as fans tend to criticise them so much. When it happens out to be a woman, the criticisms get louder.
It is therefore not surprising that many these female gospel artistes often get married to pastors or people in the church. They would want partners who cannot divorce them easily.
However, that idea has turned out not to be perfect as we have seen a number of these female gospel artistes' marriages collapsing. Gifty Osei and Christiana Love readily come to mind.
But while some of them have not worked as expected, there are a lot of other female gospel artiste marriages that are working very well.
YEN.com.gh has listed a few of these female gospel musicians who have been enjoying marital bliss with photos of the husbands.
