Currently trending is the shocking report of the termination of 30 marriages in Imo state due to several reasons. According to reports, the Catholic Diocese of Orlu expressed concern over the numerous cases of people going into marriages with forged birth certificates.
The church revealed that that was one of the reasons for the annulment. The Judicial Vicar of the Diocese, Fr. Donsteve Nnagha spoke on the issue during a mass at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish, Owerri-Ebiri in Orlu council area.
In a recent interview with a Catholic newspaper, he added that deceits by spouse, which the other partner sees as unacceptable and a deal-breaker soon after the wedding, had been another major cause of failed marriages in recent times.
Speaking on the statistics, the priest stated that the acts were mostly carried out by women.
He further warned people involved in the acts of altering their age with a view of retaining their public offices to stop and retire from the civil service when they are due, so as to give way for the younger ones to get employment.
Still on marital issues, when it comes to making a marriage work, the emphasis on staying faithful to one's partner is often stressed. For most people, having intimate relationships with anyone other than one's partner is often what they regard as adultery. However, Reno Omokri believes it is often deeper than that.
According to him, anyone who values the opinion of their pastors, friends and in-laws above that of your spouse, is also considered to be committing adultery. He wrote: "Adultery is not only when you have extramarital intercourse. As a married person, when you honour, respect and obey your pastor, in-law or friend above your spouse, you adulterate your marriage and undermine spousal unity."
