According to a private legal practitioner, Margaret Acheampong, couples who want to marry must be sure they are sexually compatible before they tie the knot; and they can only know this if they engage in premarital sex.
The lawyer who was on Starr FM's Morning Starr with Nii Arday Clegg on Monday said, “I’m very much against the preaching of no sex before marriage. [If] couples don’t get on well sexually they surely can’t marry, and the possibility of infidelity coming in is there.”
She went on to defend her point by stating that, cases she has handled involving married couples have given her a different opinion about no sex before marriage; which is usually preached to single people.
Ms. Acheampong also opposed the controversial stance of many that couples should not live together before marriage. She said dating alone does not give one the chance to know their partner very well, but the opportunity to live together before the nuptials may expose certain unfavourable flaws they may possess.
“I have handled cases where a marriage had to break because the man has a 'timber.' The man’s manhood was too big for her, and she couldn’t contain [it].
"Another’s was so slim that it pricks her when they have sex, these are the things you do not know if you don’t get the opportunity to test. If you don’t [test] and you go into it, then the likelihood of the marriage breaking down is high.”
