Greetings to you reader of this post.I am continuing the series on THE OTHER-SIDE OF MARRIAGE which I started in my last post.
One of Gods purpose in the beginning when He instituted marriage was for harmony to reign between the husband and wife.But unfortunately the Devil deceived Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden which made this purpose of God eluded them.This is why it becomes essential for anyone going into marriage to always commit it to the hand of God.Do I hear you saying what about those that did not seek the face of God before going into marriage and still enjoy a peaceful relationship?The mercy factor would have really worked for them.But would everybody enjoy that?The answer is no.That is the reason it is necessary for singles to embrace the counsel of GOD when making the choice of life partner.Failure to do so may lead to something similar to the story you are about to read at long run.
There is a way which seems right to a man and appears straight before him,but at the end of it is the way of death.Proverbs 14:12(AMP)
An Ojo customary court in Lagos State Nigeria has dissolved the nine-year-old marriage between Johnson Tom and his wife,Mary,over frequent fighting and threats to life.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that the president of the court,Mrs Florence Agbor,gave the dissolution order in a judgement delivered in a petition filed by Mary on August 17,2015.
This petition borders on frequent fighting,threats to life,lack of care,stubbornness,among other allegations leveled against the respondent
THE petitioner accused her husband of frequently beating her up,not caring for her welfare and that of her only son and not giving her a listening ear because of his stuborness.
The petitioner also said she could no longer bear the agony she was passing because there was no more love existing in the marriage.
The court has taken steps to settle the dispute considering the future of the only child,but failed.
It is obvious that the marriage is already broken down and it is hereby dissolved with immediate effect.
The petitioner should take custody of the boy,including the welfare,medicals and education of the child.
Both parties must maintain the peace within 12 months of this judgement,she said.
Agbor said any party that was not pieased with the aspect of the judgement should appeal to a superior court
My dear Single, you should learn from the above case.as it serves as an ALERT to you.Do not take the issue of marriage for GRANTED approach it with the seriousness it requires and God will see you through.
Note that the real names of people involved in the above case have been changed to protect their identities.
