My father invited us(the children) to his house and after the drinking and eating, he explained the reason for the gathering which majorly centered on my sister who has just been married for three years and having serious problem with her marriage. After various analysis, my elder brother left me with a speech I kept pondering over. In his words'' Marriage is a beautiful institution created by God but only very few people get the technicalities of this institution right. He went further to explain that in the beginning, God created Adam and gave him a wife (Eve) but the devil almost ruined that beautiful union made by the creator himself by asking Eve to eat the forbidden fruit. Eve ate the fruit and persuaded Adam to eat it and we all know the story. God was angry with them both but the lesson here is that, it was possible for Adam to get annoyed with Eve for allowing him eat the fruit and putting him in the mess which he found himself and that could have led to the end of that union. Why do people who chose to love themselves till death do them part end up been unable to stand each other. After sharing evrything in common just like my sister and her husband. Barely three years they can't stand each other been together. Marriage, why is it so beautiful but difficult to keep? Even in the churches today, divorce rates are getting high. It has left me scared. Why? Can somebody do some explanation on this beautiful institution called Marriage.
