Divorce: Lagos cleric urges estranged couples to seek help
The President of Family Booster Ministry, Lagos State, Pastor Bisi Adewale, has urged couples to seek help for their troubled marriage instead of divorce.
The cleric explaned that at no point should pastors recommend divorce to couples, noting that no marriage is beyond redemption.
Pastor Adewale said, “If we consult doctors when we are sick or reach out to a mechanic when our vehicles have issues, why is it difficult to reach out for help when our marriage is troubled?”
The Family and Relationship expert opined that when a marriage is more than five years and it has a problem, what that marriage needs is not counseling, but clinical attention, adding that, “At no point should divorce be encouraged in marriage. We were never taught to divorce.
“The couples can separate for the time being to seek help but not divorce. We are supposed to seek help. No marriage does not work, we are the people not making it to work,” he said.
