Preach Divorce as an option in Marriage – Netizen Challenges the Church

Published

on

 

A netizen with the username Adwoa Anima has made a registration on her timeline that pastors should preach divorce as an option in every marriage.

According to her, some pastors and parents are accountable for the death of people who intend to sustain abusive marriages.

She had divulged such after an online news portal had reported the predicament of a woman who was allegedly abused by a Ghanaian business mogul Prince Charles Dedjoe.

According to the report, Mr Prince Charles was arrested on Sunday 7th March 2021 by the East-Legon Police force after he had allegedly assaulted his wife Mrs Dudjoe leading to her demise.

Adwoa Anima who is also the CEO of FeetBya6 (A footwear marketing company) has promulgated that Parents should normalize having divorce conversations with their children when they are about to get married. She stressed that “Tell them it’s better to arrive home divorced than arrive home in a coffin”.

The tragic death of Mrs Dedjoe has triggered netizens to pass their displeasures on religious restrictions on marriage.

In the Christian community, it is believed to be a great sin should one chose to divorce a spouse except for fornication.

It is for better, for worse and for this reason, Christian couples are psyched to sustain abusive marriage and seek the face of God for a change than to seek divorce.

Adwoa Anima among others seeks a modification and are proposing to the church to preach divorce as an option in marriage.
