A Christian religious leader, Apostle Kadmiel Agbalenyo, has stated emphatically that the customary rings that are exchanged between married people are actually things we can do without.
The leader of the Seventh Day Congregation of Theocracy, Apostle Kadmiel Agbalenyo, is of the opinion that rings that married couples are made to wear on their wedding day and through their marriage to signify fidelity are not necessary.
According to a report from Theheraldghana.com, Apostle Agbalenyo believes even if rings are to be accepted in marriage, it should rather be during the traditional ceremonies that are done at the home of the bride.
The religious leader intimated that weddings in churches are usually elaborate celebrations that are not essential to the institution.
Speaking on the topic "Virginity to matrimony, and hardness of marital heart" at a public lecture in Accra recently, Apostle Agbalenyo decried the trust people had in rings which can usually, after marriage, be removed and hidden to commit adultery.
The religious leader noted that in the past, pastors and chiefs and other leaders were strictly made to marry virgins to set a good example because they are supposed to handle marital problems of their followers.
He also noted that, when a man or a woman is of age, in-depth investigations are conducted before a suitable partner is sought for them by their family.
In summation, he hoped the digital age as well as what he felt was a superficial culture did not destroy the institution of marriage and family.
