Marriage is a business

08 August 2016, 15:45 Anne Mutinda

"Your love for each will not be enough to run your marriage. Both of you must remember that marriage is not about sex or responsibilities but it's a business,"was the advise from a pastor officiating a couple's wedding in a church on Sunday.

"A business is an entity which the owner has got insurance over and puts all the efforts to ensure it survives the economic turmoil and flourishes in good times; so is the marriage," the clergy explained.

In the Bible, a man is commanded to love his wife and her to be submissive to him. But that does not create an image of a woman as an inferior being who cannot be listened to unless he seek her advice. No!

According to the pastor, man and wife have to equally design the structure of their home, identify their weaknesses and find way of tackling them with outright soberness free from passing blame.

From his preaching cum advice to the couples, the emphasis on openness and communication was very critical. He gave an example of wives going silent on their spouses because they offended them and husbands refusing to eat food prepared for them by their partners.

This, he said was nurturing animosity within the family and creating room for destruction of the 'business'.

Marriage requires continuous growth courtesy of improvements made by correcting the wrongs or eliminating the black spots. If both of you are too rigid to compromise, accommodate one another and support each other to become better people, then you have no reason at all to be called man and wife.

Marriage was created by God for companionship and enjoyment; there was no part for suffering and endurance.
