Marriage is inevitable for most men and women in Ghana today. Many men have sought to know the qualities they should look out for in a woman before leading her to the altar.
To this end, the general overseer of the Nigeria-based Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch A. Adeboye, has advised the male members of his church not to marry certain kinds of women.
The pastor who spoke with conviction during a Sunday service said based on his vast experience with dealing with several couples in his church, he knew the right kinds of girls to marry.
The following five characteristics stood out the most:
1. Don’t marry a woman who can’t cook
The pastor said a woman who cannot cook is not worth marriage because men will not be able to afford eating out all the time. “Don’t marry a girl who cannot cook, she needs to know how to do chores and cook because you cannot afford to be eating out all the time,” he said.
2. Don’t marry a woman who can’t pray for one hour non-stop
A prayer warrior is ideal in a woman a man wants to marry, says the pastor. He goes on to say that not just anyone who can pray, but one who can pray for one hour non-stop is marriage material. “Any girl who cannot pray for one hour non-stop, don’t marry her,” he said.
3. Don’t marry a woman who is lazy
Pastor Adeboye says a woman who is lazy as a girl will make a lazier wife and mother in future and asked men to desist from such women.
4. Don’t marry outside Redeemed Christian Church of God
The pastor was also quoted to have asked his congregation not to marry outside the church.
“Don’t ever marry outside the church and you have no reason to marry outside RCCG. The reason is that if you are both from the same church, even when trouble comes it is easier for the pastors to handle it!”
5. Don’t marry a worldly girl
“Don’t marry a girl who is worldly! If you do, you have carried what you’ll worship for the rest of your life!” he advised.
