People, which type of marriage does God recognise, is it the traditional one or the court one or the church wedding. i have noticed that in nigeria today intending couples ,especially Christians, are going through fire and rain to appease all the three institutions mentioned above, before they are considered married. is this not doing tripple marriage?
So i ask which one is accepted by God as the real one, outside which God will consider such a union unholy.must Christians be forced to appease traditional people in the villages ,who are just there to milk them of their resources without caring how the marriage survives later, even when some churches have made it clear to their congregation that they (church) do not recognise traditional marriage but only church wedding, yet they impose the same traditional marriage on the intending couples as a requirement to qualify for the church wedding. is this not hypocrisy?. many churches today are filled with young and old spinsters doing endless night vigils to procure a husband and they are being exploited by all kinds of spiritual charlatans. In the west you either do church or court wedding simple, but here we heap up gruesome burdens upon ourselves. can someone say something on this.
