Nairobi - It has been said that most modern marriages face more problems compared to the yester-years' and many attribute these problems to the lack of seriousness among modern couples.
According to a Nakuru based marriage counselor Dorothy Wangari, 90% of modern marriages are not guided by love but by infatuation, something she says makes 90% of modern marriages a total joke.
Wangari says that modern couples are not serious about marriage and many get into marriage just as a by the way and to avoid being questioned by the society.
Speaking Monday, Wangari said that the most ridiculous marriages are those involving couples who took vows in church.
She said that modern marriages can be best described as a mere joke.

“Today, there are no serious marriages because those getting into marriage do not know what it entails and what we are seeing cannot be described as marriage,” said Wangari.
“Those who take vows in churches are the worst affected because they hardly honor those vows and some of them barely last for two months before troubles begin,” she said.
“In Kenya today, 90% of young marriages are a total joke and most people don’t know why and how they ended up in marriage,” she added.
She challenged young couples to take time and understand what marriage is before making the final decision of settling down as husband and wife.
