Lady Gaga Was ‘Devastated’ After Split From Ex-Fiance Christian Carino

A bad romance? Lady Gaga’s decision to end her engagement to ex Christian Carino didn’t come without a flood of emotions.

“She was devastated at first,” an insider exclusively tells Us Weekly of the 33-year-old A Star Is Born actress, noting that Carino’s personality “infringed on her creative process” leading up to their split. “[She] couldn’t risk jeopardizing her career in that way, over a man, and that’s not something she would stand for.”

Us Weekly confirmed in February that the former couple called it quits after two years together. The twosome first sparked split speculation earlier that month when Gaga attended the 2019 Grammy Awards solo and sans her pink diamond engagement ring.

“Chris didn’t treat Gaga very well toward the end of their relationship,” a source previously told Us, with a second insider adding that it was the “Million Reasons” songstress “who broke things off” with the 50-year-old talent agent.

“He was jealous,” the insider explained. “He was trying to find her all the time and texted her a lot. Her friends didn’t like him either.”

The Oscar winner had a jam-packed awards season schedule during her breakup, leading her to not fully process things at the time. “Gaga has been in such a focus on her career right now and has not even had time to address what has been happening between her and Christian, emotionally,” a source told Us days after news of their split. “She has been telling those around her, ‘Let’s stay focused.’”

 

Prior to her relationship with Carino, Gaga was engaged to Chicago Fire star Taylor Kinney. The couple called it quits July 2016 after nearly five years together. Carino, for his part, was married to newscaster Brooke Baldwin from 1997 to 2015. The pair share teenage daughter Bella.

DO YOU KNOW THAT HE IS YOUR SAVIOR?—(10 minutes read)

The 2nd of September 2018 being the first Sunday in the month of September happened to be tagged “COVENANT DAY OF MARITAL BREAKTHROUGH” in my Church. Due to many personal obligations that made me to have far away from Church this year, I made up my mind to avail myself the opportunity of attending the Second Service since I was a bit less busy since I am observing my annual leave.

IMG_20180902_223607

 

 

 

 

As preaching and homily was going on and towards the end of the sermon, he preached and prayed about marital breakthrough and he made a particular submission by quoting Ephesian 5 verse 22-33.He asserted that if every marital union can be laid on the foundation of what is chronicled in Ephesian 5 verse 22-33 by all the concerned parties in marriage especially husband and wife, the challenges facing the institution of marriage recently will not surface in any way at all.

 

Immediately, after making his submission known, I quickly opened my bible and checked what exactly the actual scripture was talking about.

 

While reading my mind struck a verse, though popular but the later part of this verse has not been really talked about by many Christians and preachers of the word of God.

 

It was at the point of this inspiration and this uncommon revelation that I decided to push this verse across so that it can also serve as a source of motivation and inspiration to couple in marriage.

 

Reading through Ephesians 5 verse 23:

“For the husband is the head of the wife, so also Christ is the head of the church; and He is the savior of the church”

 

In this verse, one could see two important comparison between the husband and Jesus Christ. This verse compares and made the husband to be the head of the wife as Jesus Christ is the head of this church. This comparison and similarities simply connotes:

 

1.Every husband must be respected and referenced by the wife as Jesus Christ is respected and referenced as the head of the church.

2.As Jesus Christ is the savior of the Church, every husband is also a savior to the wife.

 

These are the two revelations about the concept of marital union presented by God in this portion of the scripture aimed at given a solid foundation for every marriage needed for success in every home. Though, this has been silenced and lesser people are fond talking about it due to many anti-God concept that is quite available across the length and breadth of the world. The need for this portion of the scripture to become relevant and useful in building a successful marriage has been subjected and subdued by ideologies and philosophies that buttresses on woman emancipation and equality.

 

Due to misconception of this portion of the scripture and the desire for many people in the world to banish the thought about God from their sensitivity and consciousness, this portion of the scripture has little or no meaning to many people in the sense that the issue of submission from wife to husband has become a thing of the past.

 

Every woman desires equal stand in the home and this has made many homes to be thrown into confusion resulting in domestic violence and divorce that has been on increase in the recent times.

 

God’s intention for every home is that husband should love their wife while every wife should ensure that the husband is given the same respect and reference being given to Jesus Christ, although this does not make the husband to any wife to assume the post of Jesus Christ or a totalitarian type of leadership that is aimed in all ramification to subdue a woman basic right.

 

Being compared in terms of post simply connotes and demand a lifestyle that could be likened to the kind of lifestyle Jesus Christ lived during His earthly ministry.

 

This verse of the scripture simply placed and apportioned a responsibility on every husband to live a sacrificial and selfless lifestyle just as Jesus Christ lived his life for the salvation and redemption of the entire human race.

Husband should be the head and savior in the home simply connotes and demands a lot of responsibility to the wife and to the entire household.

 

Husband should be the head and savior to the wife in love and in deeds.

 

The responsibility of being the head to the wife should be carried out in love and the responsibility of being a savior to the wife should also be carried out in love because it was recorded in the scripture that it is the love that Jesus Christ have for the church that made Him to offer His life as a living sacrifice for the forgiveness of Sin committed by the entire human race through the first man and the first woman named Adam and Eve.

 

Any marital union that is based and functioned on this scriptural concept and foundation can never be found to have any issue no matter the length of days of the marriage.

 

Every marriage becomes successful and meaningful when the what is chronicled in the original manual of marriage originated and authored by God is adhered to and followed strictly without any one of the content being subjected and subdued to man’s philosophies the way it is now in the world we are today.

 

The foundation of marriage should have its root and route in God and it should be executed in accordance to what is authored by God. None of the content should be seeing and viewed as irrelevant and unimportant.

 

Once the wife understands her role and responsibility in marriage and she is ready to carry it out accordingly and the husband is also willing to answer to the role and responsibility of being the head and savior to the wife, many homes and families across the length and breadth of the world will have peace and the issue of divorce and separation between husband and wife will fizzle out and dwindled completely.

 

Until, God is allowed to build foundation of marriage through the scripture, successful marriage will be a wishful thinking and a mirage.

 

Give God a chance in your quest to become married and you will be ensured that you will be successfully married.

WILL SHE ACCEPT MY PROPOSAL?

She was glued to her phone,

She was busy frolicking with her phone,

I couldn’t keep my eyes off her,

I tried breaking the ice,

I was scare of being a victim of rejection.

 

In a space of time,

Many thoughts occupied my mind,

My mind was busy dangling,

I was in quandary of what to do,

Many questions occupied my mind,

 

I kept asking if I should start conversing,

I kept thinking about the outcome of our conversation before I started,

Does it worth a while,

Does my intention right,

Do I need bothering her?

Do I need to go extra miles?

And this kept weighing me down.

 

She is good looking,

Her fairness is classy,

She is a mulatto,

She is attractive, colorful, charming, alluring and beautiful.

Her voice is damn sonorous and catchy,

I noticed maturity and stability in her voice.

Her observed her to be reserve and trained.

 

Despite, my mind being busy on what to do,

She was busy chatting,

Only God Knows who she is chatting with.

I think she didn’t have my time,

I might just end up being a nuisance to her,

I might end up disturbing her flow and comfort,

She seems to be enjoying her company by herself,

She seems to be comfortable with her world.

 

Why do I have to disturb her?

When I knew that she is satisfied with her world,

I don’t want to be a pest and a parasite.

It is better for me,

To be mindful of my business.

 

In spite of all this,

Something kept pushing me to break a ice,

It gradually becoming a burden,

Till I summon courage and I start conversing with her,

 

Hello, Pretty face,

Can we break the ice and start talking?

Since we are on a long journey,

I think we both have to keep ourselves busy,

Talking to each other and keeping each other’s company.

 

Initially, her countenance was sharp and unreceptive,

Till she returns my kind gesture in talking to her,

With a flash of her white dentition,

Which encouraged me to continue talking with her.

No problem. She responded.

I was perplexed when she made her first response,

Telling me that she has been longing to look for a way to break the ice,

She has wanted to converse with me,

The first moment she saw me afar,

But….

 

Can you continue. I asked

I was afraid of being rejected. She replied.

I was also afraid of being rejected by you. I answered her.

 

What a coincidence.

Both of us are victims of assumption.

We are cocooned and cornered in our own world,

Thinking that that world will reject us.

 

We kept talking and smiling,

Without control, we broke the ice,

Without limitation,

We build bridge of relationship,

We thought it will end on after our journey,

The relationship grew and matured,

Into another relationship,

And till this moment,

We are still glued together,

In a relationship that will last till eternity.

 

The assumption of rejection could have robbed us of our marital destiny,

The assumption about the world been mean, crude and cruel to us,

Would have been a limitation that would have marred our destiny,

A dint of trial saved us and kept us till today.

 

Never allow fear of rejection keep you down.

 

Note:

This is purely a work of fiction.

Any resemblance to any true-life story is coincidental.

MLST FICTION:THE WRONG MOTIVE–EPISODE TWENTY.

CHAPTER ONE.

It was a cool Monday morning and the accompany ambience was encouraging with a kind of serenity that seems to be incomparable with what the realities was in the course of the penultimate week.

 

Though the electricity distribution company has taken light,many people woke up to the reality of darkness but this has been the part and parcel of the Nigerian Society and the only thing that could be done to salvage this reality is to go for option of getting another source of light.While the well-to -do put on their electricity generators,the less priviledge will hold on to their fate and look for a way to lit either candle or lantern in order to make their preparation for the new day easy and fast.

 

Good Morning Tricia.Tony greeted.

 

Are you on your feet?Tony asked from afar looking directly at Tricia bedroom door.

 

Tony was expecting answer from Tricia but after few seconds that Tricia failed in answering him,he thought of moving closer to her door and decided to knock her door.

 

Time has gone,Tricia.You really slept deeply and this is already past 5AM. This is quite unusual.I think you remembered that you are resuming afresh today in your place of primary assignment?Tony kept talking at the door but all his talking still met a deaf silence except the fact that he noticed that she is just waking up and struggling to rise up from her bed.After few seconds of talking,Tony went back to his room quietly.

 

After about 30 minutes of Tony going back to his room,Tricia opened her door and called upon Tony apologizing about her not responding to Tony’s call on time.Though, this also met an unintentional deaf silence because Tony was already busy cleaning up in his bathroom in preparation for the day’s job.

 

Tricia didn’t bother herself since she knew that Tony was already in the shower cleaning up and she didn’t want to knock on his bedroom door so that the ugly incidence that happened the other time will not repeat itself since Tricia knew that she is scantly dressed with her night-gown revealing all the curves and contours nature blessed her with.So, she maintained her candour but rushed into the Kitchen to boil water.

 

While Tony was almost through in the shower, he was bothered once again thinking about what could have made Tricia to be unaware of his presence at her door and so many thoughts of fear started filling his mind and immediately, he decided to check on her door once again but he didn’t know that Tricia is already awake and busy in the kitchen.

 

Few seconds later, he dashed out of his room being half naked with a knicker and as he opened his door calling on Tricia this time around from afar.Tricia answered him from the corner of the kitchen where she was busy cleaning and washing dishes and plates.

 

I am in the kitchen,Tony.Tricia answered.

 

Tony have to changed his direction and move directly to the kitchen to confirm if truly she is awake.When Tony got to the kitchen, Tricia left what she was busy doing and move closer to the entrance of the kitchen and Tony was able to see her at a few distance away but both Tony and Tricia was dumbfounded and silence filled the atmosphere of the kitchen for few seconds because both discovered that they were half naked early in the morning and this is happening the second time.

 

I have checked on you not quite long,Tony.Tricia talked.I think you were in the shower already but I didn’t want to disturb your privacy.Tricia submitted.

 

I was the first person that checked on you and I even knocked your door but all my efforts to wake you up met a deaf silence.Only God knows what you were busy doing on the bed without being aware of the fact that someone is at your door knocking which is quite unusual and it was due to the fact that I became bothered after finishing with the shower that I have to check back on you to even break your door this time around if you fail to answer me.

 

Are you serious?Tricia asked Tony.

 

Yeah.I am damn serious because I didn’t believe that you can sleep like that.Tony answered.

 

What really happened that kept you beyond your normal waking-up time?Tony asked Tricia but Tricia just smiled and gave Tony a beautiful riddance on her face that made Tony to blush a little.

 

I was just little bit tired and I felt reluctant moving out of bed this morning.Tricia replied Tony.

 

Ok!How are you now?Tony asked.

 

I am fine and I am gradually preparing for my place of primary assignment.Tricia responded.

 

That’s great but just go inside and cover your body.Tony asked Tricia to put on a cloth that will cover her body but Tricia in a joking manner asked Tony to go inside and fix himself up by covering his body too.

 

Go inside your bedroom and cover yourself up too and stop eyeing another man’s girlfriend too early in the morning.Tricia responded.

 

At this point, they both laughed wild and Tony gradually walked back to his room to finish up cleaning himself up while Tricia quickly round up the plates she was busy cleaning and later moved inside her room to cover her exposed body.

 

Tony!!!Breakfast is ready.Join me at the dinning.Tricia invited Tony to breakfast.

 

I will soon join you.I just want to pack my bag and my laptop.Just give me few minutes.I will soon be with you.Tony replied.

 

Ok!!!I am waiting.Make it snappy because we are both running out of time.Tricia responded.

 

At about two minutes later,Tony opened the door of her room and stepped out holding his bag in his hand and sighting Tricia afar in one of her beautiful gown made him to open his mouth and commented on how gorgeously dressed Tricia is.

 

You looked beautiful and alluring.Tony talked.

 

Forget that.You can direct that compliment to Tiffany when you see her this week or when you call her today.Tricia responded.

 

Won’t you call her or see her soon?Tricia asked.

 

Tony was just dumbfounded when she mentioned Tiffany but Tony didn’t give her an answer because he knew that the statement made by Tricia now is rooted in envy and jealousy.

 

That’s your breakfast.Tricia pointed to five slices of bread and a jar of hot tea placed some few distance away from where she is sitting.

 

Immediately, Tony sat down,rushed his bread and gulped his tea withing five minutes and at this time Tricia was busy fondling with his phone and she was also trying to adjust her make-over with her mirror in preparation for the office.

 

Shall we start going?Tony asked.

 

Sure.I am also waiting for you already.

 

It was already 07:30AM,Tricia and Tony moved out of the house and walked to the road to get a cab that will take them to their place of work.

CHAPTER TWO

 

Tiffany,you have a call.This is the third time your phone has been ringing.Tiffany’s mum called her attention to her phone that has been ringing continuously.

Tiffany’s has been busy attending to her early morning domestic shores while her phone was ringing until her mum call her attention to it.

 

She quickly dashed to her room to check who has been calling her but she kept imagining who might be calling her as early as 8AM in the morning but she couldn’t figure it out.

 

By the time she picked her phone up,she observed that the number was not on her contact list.Then,she just stroll down,observed that she is having three missed calls and then placed her phone back to the place where she was charging the phone.

 

Who has been calling your phone?Tiffany’s mum probed.

 

It is a strange call mum.I can’t figure out who the person is.Maybe the person might call back.Tiffany replied her mum.

 

Can’t you push a call across to the person.Who knows, the call might be important.Her mum submitted.

 

Mum!!!It is okay.I don’t want to bother myself about such now.Let me finish my chores.I will later attend to it.Tiffany replied her mum.

 

Ok!!Your wish is my command and I will submit to your demand.Her mum replied.

 

What are we preparing for breakfast Mum.Tiffany asked her mum.

 

I think you should ask your dad.Have you seen him this morning after the morning devotion?Her mum asked.

 

I think he should be in the bedroom reading his favorite daily tabloid or sport magazines.

 

Ok! Ma.Let me go and ask him about what he would like to take for breakfast.Tiffany replied.

 

Immediately, Tiffany disappeared from the presence of her mum and head on to the bedroom to look for his dad.

 

Daddy!!!Where are you?She kept calling her dad repeatedly.

 

Daughter!!!I am inside my bedroom relaxing and reading.

 

After a few seconds, she entered his dad’s bedroom and asked him what he would like to eat as breakfast.

 

I think custard would be better for me this morning because I need something light but you and your mum can eat whatever is pleasing to both of you as breakfast.

 

Ok!! Sir.I will deliver your message to your wife in the kitchen.Tiffany replied.

 

That’s my girl.

 

That’s my daughter.

 

And Tiffany walked straight to meet her mum who is waiting for her dad’s response in the kitchen.

Tricia didn’t bother herself since she knew that Tony was already in the shower cleaning up and she didn’t want to knock on his bedroom door so that the ugly incidence that happened the other time will not repeat itself since Tricia knew that she is scantly dressed with her night-gown revealing all the curves and contours nature blessed her with.So, she maintained her candour but rushed into the Kitchen to boil water.

 

While Tony was almost through in the shower, he was bothered once again thinking about what could have made Tricia to be unaware of his presence at her door and so many thoughts of fear started filling his mind and immediately, he decided to check on her door once again but he didn’t know that Tricia is already awake and busy in the kitchen.

 

Few seconds later, he dashed out of his room being half naked with a knicker and as he opened his door calling on Tricia this time around from afar.Tricia answered him from the corner of the kitchen where she was busy cleaning and washing dishes and plates.

 

I am in the kitchen,Tony.Tricia answered.

 

Tony have to changed his direction and move directly to the kitchen to confirm if truly she is awake.When Tony got to the kitchen, Tricia left what she was busy doing and move closer to the entrance of the kitchen and Tony was able to see her at a few distance away but both Tony and Tricia was dumbfounded and silence filled the atmosphere of the kitchen for few seconds because both discovered that they were half naked early in the morning and this is happening the second time.

 

I have checked on you not quite long,Tony.Tricia talked.I think you were in the shower already but I didn’t want to disturb your privacy.Tricia submitted.

 

I was the first person that checked on you and I even knocked your door but all my efforts to wake you up met a deaf silence.Only God knows what you were busy doing on the bed without being aware of the fact that someone is at your door knocking which is quite unusual and it was due to the fact that I became bothered after finishing with the shower that I have to check back on you to even break your door this time around if you fail to answer me.

 

Are you serious?Tricia asked Tony.

 

Yeah.I am damn serious because I didn’t believe that you can sleep like that.Tony answered.

 

What really happened that kept you beyond your normal waking-up time?Tony asked Tricia but Tricia just smiled and gave Tony a beautiful riddance on her face that made Tony to blush a little.

 

I was just little bit tired and I felt reluctant moving out of bed this morning.Tricia replied Tony.

 

Ok!How are you now?Tony asked.

 

I am fine and I am gradually preparing for my place of primary assignment.Tricia responded.

 

That’s great but just go inside and cover your body.Tony asked Tricia to put on a cloth that will cover her body but Tricia in a joking manner asked Tony to go inside and fix himself up by covering his body too.

 

Go inside your bedroom and cover yourself up too and stop eyeing another man’s girlfriend too early in the morning.Tricia responded.

 

At this point, they both laughed wild and Tony gradually walked back to his room to finish up cleaning himself up while Tricia quickly round up the plates she was busy cleaning and later moved inside her room to cover her exposed body.

 

Tony!!!Breakfast is ready.Join me at the dinning.Tricia invited Tony to breakfast.

 

I will soon join you.I just want to pack my bag and my laptop.Just give me few minutes.I will soon be with you.Tony replied.

 

Ok!!!I am waiting.Make it snappy because we are both running out of time.Tricia responded.

 

At about two minutes later,Tony opened the door of her room and stepped out holding his bag in his hand and sighting Tricia afar in one of her beautiful gown made him to open his mouth and commented on how gorgeously dressed Tricia is.

 

You looked beautiful and alluring.Tony talked.

 

Forget that.You can direct that compliment to Tiffany when you see her this week or when you call her today.Tricia responded.

 

Won’t you call her or see her soon?Tricia asked.

 

Tony was just dumbfounded when she mentioned Tiffany but Tony didn’t give her an answer because he knew that the statement made by Tricia now is rooted in envy and jealousy.

 

That’s your breakfast.Tricia pointed to five slices of bread and a jar of hot tea placed some few distance away from where she is sitting.

 

Immediately, Tony sat down,rushed his bread and gulped his tea withing five minutes and at this time Tricia was busy fondling with his phone and she was also trying to adjust her make-over with her mirror in preparation for the office.

 

Shall we start going?Tony asked.

 

Sure.I am also waiting for you already.

 

It was already 07:30AM,Tricia and Tony moved out of the house and walked to the road to get a cab that will take them to their place of work.

25 PILLARS OF PROSPEROUS MARRIAGE?—(8 MINUTES READ).

INTRODUCTION.

 

Recently,prosperous and succesful marriage is gradually becoming scarce and it is speedily going into extinction in this present age.This was traced to been due to dearth or lack of basic underatnding of what the tenets of the institution of marriage entails and demand.

 

A prosperous marriage is a marriage that is not built on mere general and common definition that marriage is a union between  a man and a woman but when a marriage is established on a deeper and firm understanding that marriage is a union between a man,a woman and God,it will end up becoming blisful,beautiful,succesful and prosperous.

 

A prosperous marriage becomes achievable and a subject of physical reality when it is anchored on a tripatite arrangement and not on dual arangement of being  a union between mere mortals of man and woman but when it is built on a tripatite arrangement made by  divinity with its foundation erected on immortality that made God the originator and the source of marriage as a partner,such marital union can never hit the rock in the course of its existence.

 

Any marriage that is working blisfully and beautifully is a kind of marriage in which parties involved have a functioning understanding that each partner is a stakeholder and not slaves.

 

Any marital union in which partners involved contributes their quota in accordance to agreed convenanted and contractual  agreement accompanied with the context and concept of their relationship based on mutual,symbiotic and platonic understanding with respect for one another view,emotion and feelings can never be far from being a good description of a perfect marriage that is worthy of emulation and admonition.

 

Marriage becomes succesful without friction when you treat your partner,children and relatives as stakeholders and not as slaves with all the parties involved have a deep understanding of what their role in building prosperous marital foundation and edifice entails.

 

It is on the paltform of deep understanding of the basic binding force of marriage that love as one of the pillars of prosperous marriage can thrive smoothly without resentment,reluctance and rancour.

 

As earlier stated that love is one of the basic force that triggers the establishment and the entrenchment of relationship that ends up in marital union,it is worthy to note that love alone can never enhance, keep and maintain the smooth running of any marriage.

 

Love can simply be described and defined as a facilitator and a means through which the execution of responsibilities that are designed to make the purpose of marital union fulfilled.

 

No marital union can survive when the drive,urge and passion needed in fulfilling its purpose is not responsibly and smartly executed and carried out.

 

Don’t manage your marriage by mere mouthing of:

 

“I love you and I care for you.”

 

The essence of partners coming together or being yoked together as one in marriage is to take care of each other without any form of cheating,partialty and reluctance.

 

Since giving is synonymous in context and concept to love and it is in giving that the whole essence of love is revealed,then the maintenance of a succesful marital union demands this simple and common mantra that should become a guide for everyone who desire succesful marriage.

 

“I give you,you give me,”

 

“I rub your back,you rub mine.”

 

Our hands becomes cleaner when the right hand ans the left hand is engaged in cleaning each other.

 

Marriage entails and demands that partners should be equal and maintain balance in rubbing each others back.This is what guarantees safety and all-encompassing peace of mind once partners involved in marital union have this basic understanding and they are both ready to maximize and optimize this idea in the course of their mariatal bliss.

 

 

MARRIAGE 4
25 PILLARS OF PROSPEROUS MARRIAGE.

 

Asuccesful marriage becomes possible when partners involved uphold the tenets of equity and equality that are potent enough to project the existence and the entrenchment of other pillars of prosperous marriage.

 

The concept and context of equity and equality in marriage is all about theis common mantra:

 

“I keep you warm,you keep me warm”

 

On the contrary,partners involed in marital union who believed in the idealogy and philosophy of equity and equality should be matured enough by not allowing equity and equality as a form of misconception that will fan the amber of disrespect and dishonour chanelled towards destroying the self image of any of the partners or stakeholder involved in marriage.

MARRIAGE 2
25 PILLARS OF PROSPEROUS MARRIAGE.

 

These are some of the basic pillars that must be maintained before any succesful and prosperous marital union can be established.Though the foundation  might be laid by love but if other pillars are amiss,such marriage is bound to hit the rock in the course of time.

CONCLUSION.

 

 

MARRIAGE 1
25 PILLARS OF PROSPEROUS MARRIAGE.

 

There is a  need for every married couples and those who are planning and wishing to become married to seek for deeper understanding and learn the basic necessities of what should be done in the course of their marriage that will stand as an enhancer and a booster of blisful union.

 

Taking time to understand each other is necessary and it is on this that the birth of a succesful marriage will become possible.

Marriage is designed by God to be enjoyed and not to be endured but before the enjoyment needed in any marriage to become achievable, there is a need for personal discovery and appraisal on the part of couples involved.

 

It is when this is carried out that the understanding of the strength and weakness of each partner will be maximized to build a marriage that will be prosperous in the process of time.

 

Marriage is a project that demands constant and continuous investment on the part of all the stakeholders and it must be consciously carried out for the betterment of each of the parties involved.

 

Stakeholders involved must ensure that they contribute their quota in form of responses and responsibilities needed to build a blisful marital union.


(PAGE 3:CONCLUSION).

In view of all the aforementioned, I wish every married couple success in their marriage.

 

Happy New Month.

 

Welcome to the month of LOVE.

CHAPTER ONE.

 

It was a cool Monday morning and the accompany ambience was encouraging with a kind of serenity that seems to be incomparable with what the realities was in the course of the penultimate week.

 

Though the electricity distribution company has taken light,many people woke up to the reality of darkness but this has been the part and parcel of the Nigerian Society and the only thing that could be done to salvage this reality is to go for option of getting another source of light.While the well-to -do put on their electricity generators,the less priviledge will hold on to their fate and look for a way to lit either candle or lantern in order to make their preparation for the new day easy and fast.

 

Good Morning Tricia.Tony greeted.

 

Are you on your feet?Tony asked from afar looking directly at Tricia bedroom door.

 

Tony was expecting answer from Tricia but after few seconds that Tricia failed in answering him,he thought of moving closer to her door and decided to knock her door.

 

Time has gone,Tricia.You really slept deeply and this is already past 5AM. This is quite unusual.I think you remembered that you are resuming afresh today in your place of primary assignment?Tony kept talking at the door but all his talking still met a deaf silence except the fact that he noticed that she is just waking up and struggling to rise up from her bed.After few seconds of talking,Tony went back to his room quietly.

25 PILLARS OF PROSPEROUS MARRIAGE?—(8 MINUTES READ).

INTRODUCTION.

 

Recently,prosperous and succesful marriage is gradually becoming scarce and it is speedily going into extinction in this present age.This was traced to been due to dearth or lack of basic underatnding of what the tenets of the institution of marriage entails and demand.

 

A prosperous marriage is a marriage that is not built on mere general and common definition that marriage is a union between  a man and a woman but when a marriage is established on a deeper and firm understanding that marriage is a union between a man,a woman and God,it will end up becoming blisful,beautiful,succesful and prosperous.

 

A prosperous marriage becomes achievable and a subject of physical reality when it is anchored on a tripatite arrangement and not on dual arangement of being  a union between mere mortals of man and woman but when it is built on a tripatite arrangement made by  divinity with its foundation erected on immortality that made God the originator and the source of marriage as a partner,such marital union can never hit the rock in the course of its existence.

 

Any marriage that is working blisfully and beautifully is a kind of marriage in which parties involved have a functioning understanding that each partner is a stakeholder and not slaves.

 

Any marital union in which partners involved contributes their quota in accordance to agreed convenanted and contractual  agreement accompanied with the context and concept of their relationship based on mutual,symbiotic and platonic understanding with respect for one another view,emotion and feelings can never be far from being a good description of a perfect marriage that is worthy of emulation and admonition.

 

Marriage becomes succesful without friction when you treat your partner,children and relatives as stakeholders and not as slaves with all the parties involved have a deep understanding of what their role in building prosperous marital foundation and edifice entails.

 

It is on the paltform of deep understanding of the basic binding force of marriage that love as one of the pillars of prosperous marriage can thrive smoothly without resentment,reluctance and rancour.

 

As earlier stated that love is one of the basic force that triggers the establishment and the entrenchment of relationship that ends up in marital union,it is worthy to note that love alone can never enhance, keep and maintain the smooth running of any marriage.

 

Love can simply be described and defined as a facilitator and a means through which the execution of responsibilities that are designed to make the purpose of marital union fulfilled.

 

No marital union can survive when the drive,urge and passion needed in fulfilling its purpose is not responsibly and smartly executed and carried out.

 

Don’t manage your marriage by mere mouthing of:

 

“I love you and I care for you.”

 

The essence of partners coming together or being yoked together as one in marriage is to take care of each other without any form of cheating,partialty and reluctance.

 

Since giving is synonymous in context and concept to love and it is in giving that the whole essence of love is revealed,then the maintenance of a succesful marital union demands this simple and common mantra that should become a guide for everyone who desire succesful marriage.

 

“I give you,you give me,”

 

“I rub your back,you rub mine.”

 

Our hands becomes cleaner when the right hand ans the left hand is engaged in cleaning each other.

 

Marriage entails and demands that partners should be equal and maintain balance in rubbing each others back.This is what guarantees safety and all-encompassing peace of mind once partners involved in marital union have this basic understanding and they are both ready to maximize and optimize this idea in the course of their mariatal bliss.

 

 

MARRIAGE 4
25 PILLARS OF PROSPEROUS MARRIAGE.

 

Asuccesful marriage becomes possible when partners involved uphold the tenets of equity and equality that are potent enough to project the existence and the entrenchment of other pillars of prosperous marriage.

 

The concept and context of equity and equality in marriage is all about theis common mantra:

 

“I keep you warm,you keep me warm”

 

On the contrary,partners involed in marital union who believed in the idealogy and philosophy of equity and equality should be matured enough by not allowing equity and equality as a form of misconception that will fan the amber of disrespect and dishonour chanelled towards destroying the self image of any of the partners or stakeholder involved in marriage.

Taking time to understand each other is necessary and it is on this that the birth of a succesful marriage will become possible.

Marriage is designed by God to be enjoyed and not to be endured but before the enjoyment needed in any marriage to become achievable, there is a need for personal discovery and appraisal on the part of couples involved.

 

It is when this is carried out that the understanding of the strength and weakness of each partner will be maximized to build a marriage that will be prosperous in the process of time.

 

Marriage is a project that demands constant and continuous investment on the part of all the stakeholders and it must be consciously carried out for the betterment of each of the parties involved.

 

Stakeholders involved must ensure that they contribute their quota in form of responses and responsibilities needed to build a blisful marital union.

MLST FICTION:THE WRONG MOTIVE–EPISODE NINETEEN.—(TEN MINUTES READ)

CHAPTER ONE.

 

My daughter!!!Tiffany’s mum exclaimed and burst into wild laughter that attracted the attention of her husband who is busy relaxing while sitting down at the balcony.

 

Hope all is well?Tiffany’s dad questioned from afar with a loud voice but his query received no answer and his wife didn’t bulge herself answering him because she was busy enjoying Tiffany’s narrative of what delayed her after Sunday’s service from one sentence to another sentence.The gist was not a short one but a long one that kept mother and daughter at mouth to mouth distance listening to each other.

 

It could have been short but her mum kept dragging the gist by asking more deeper questions and at the same time stylishly making jest of her daughter which made Tiffany to blush and looked like a small girl when her narratives were on course with her mum.

 

Really!!!Tiffany’s mum exclaimed the second time and this made her husband to walk briskly into the sitting room expecting to barge on them but he was amazed to meet the sitting room empty.

 

Dear!!!Where are you?Tiffany’s dad called on his wife with a loud voice and his call met a deaf silence for a period of five seconds and this made him to ponder and wonder what could be going on in the entire house that no one wants to disclose to him.

 

We are here in Tiffany’s room.Tiffany’s mum answered.

 

Tiffany’s room!!!I thought I left both of you in the sitting room before I started observing my fiesta in the balcony.

 

Ok!What is going on in her room that kept both of you inside and both of you having been laughing wildly that drew my attention and raised my inquisition?

 

While Tiffany’s dad was talking,he kept on moving towards Tiffany’s room to check on them and he later knocked on the door before Tiffany stood up from her lying down position on the bed to open the door to her room in order to help his dad that is on the door knocking.

 

When the door was finally opened ajar,Tiffany’s dad was looking suspicious and his inquisitiveness was high that he wanted to fathom what has kept mum and daughter lying down on the bed together talking with laughter that kept drawing attention in the entire house.

 

What is going on here?

 

Can someone bail me out?

 

Can someone help me out?

 

Every question asked by Tiffany’s dad met a deaf wall and he kept wondering about what his house is gradually turning to.

 

Tiffany!!!You can’t take my wife away from me.I think it is high time you pack your luggage and go back to school for the final lap of your university education.My wife is gradually turning to someone that cannot talk to me.I need to fight for what belong to me.You are my daughter but I won’t allow you to break the closeness that I built decades ago when your mum is almost of the same statures like you.

 

And immediately you are done with your education,make sure you go to your husband house so that you will be able to be close with him and have secrets with him.

 

Is that clear and acceptable by you?Tiffany’s dad asked with a smiling face that signifies that he is joking but at the same time being bothered about what could be happening to two people who are precious to him and they refused to give him a clue.

 

Immediately he finished talking,mum and daughter started laughing wild again and the noise of their laughter took over the entire house with Tiffany’s dad joining them in laughing wild.

 

We are just talking about issues that has to do with life and women in general.Tiffany’s mum started talking after the decibel of their laughter is gradually going down.I am just teaching her some life experiences,what I passed through while I was at her age,what she should expect from people around and what the entire society is expecting from her as an African woman with the need for her to do whatever is within her capacity to project our cultural heritage and belief to other continent of the world.

 

These are part of what has kept us inside for some hours.Her mum submitted.

 

Oh!!!I see.That’s quite commendable and it is worthy of emulation of you taking your time to teach the millenia what the entire human race is expecting from them in the present and in the nearest future but you could have invited me to be part of the forum so that I will be able to make contributions about how my growing up days looked like and how terrible and stressful it was for me to get to where I am today.

 

You really missed.Her dad concluded.

 

I didn’t miss anything,dad.You are the one that missed.Tiffany replied his dad.

 

Are you sure?Tiffany’s dad asked with overwhelming bewilderment.

 

Well,anyway,let me go back to the balcony to continue observing my siesta.I am satisfied now that everything is alright.

 

Immediately,he stood up,closed the door and left mum and daughter inside the room.

 

Thanks for checking on us.Tiffany told his dad with a smile on her face.

 

Never mind.Her dad replied and the door of her room was slammed.


THE WRONG MOTIVE—CHAPTER ONE—EPISODE NINETEEN

 

 

CHAPTER TWO

 

Can we spend little time to talk in order to clarify some issues?

 

Tony asked Tricia as they both alighted fro the cab that took them home after church service on Sunday.

 

Their trip back home has been boring with the two of them maintaining a far distance from each other and none of them bother to utter a single word until they alighted.

 

It was Tony that thought in his mind that something is wrong which has to do with misconception and the only way out for both of them to iron issue out without anyone of them being hurt and neglected is for both of them to sit down and have a chat.

 

Anyway,no problem.When we get inside,we will sit down and talk.Tricia replied Tony.

 

Both Tony and Tricia maintained a separate lane while walking down home with none of them bothering themselves to talk about anything as they have being relating before.This is simply a confirmation from the two sides that they are both hurt.

 

Thirty minutes after they have entered the house and after they have both pull their clothes,no of them bothered to talk about lunch and they both don’t see any reason why they should talk about preparing lunch at the moment.

 

It was Tricia that call the attention of of Tony to the fact that both of them promised to sit down and talk when they get inside.

 

Sorry!!!My mind was on what we are going to prepare for lunch and I was thinking that we will have our talk after the lunch but since you have called my attention to it by reminding me now,I think we should sit down and talk now.

 

While Tony was sitting down on a three-sitter couch,Tricia maintained and sat down on a single-sitter couch with her being suspicious and anxious about what could have been the reason for this talk they are about to start.

 

Tricia started soliloquizing deeply in her mind thinking about how handsome,well-mannered,loving and compassionate Tony has been despite the fact that he is a young man who is full of dreams and aspiration.Tricia thought in her mind that Tony is just standing as her friend and as a brother figure but it was until he witnessed the kind of affinity Tony had for Tiffany that Tricia discovered that she is jealous of Tony attending to another woman.Since then,Tricia knows on her own that she is jealous and her jealousy has its root in her gradually having a soft spot for Tony but she didn’t discovered it until she became intimidated by the presence of another woman which might capture the attention of Tony.

 

Will I be left alone?Will I be asked to leave this house once Tiffany is gradually coming into Tony’s life?And even,I will loose Tony’s attention totally and there is no one who would be looking after me in this strange land where I have no relation,familiars,friends,relatives,families and acquaintances.

 

These are some of the overwhelming line of thought that makes Tricia to be insecure and she has started reacting of which Tony is aware and they are about talking about it.

 

While both of them were looking at each other not knowing where to start from,Tony was silently talking to himself and busy appreciating how beautiful Tricia is until she started showing a negative side of herself.Tony knew that Tricia is a damsel with the right body curves that could make any man run after her even in the middle of the night but the only restriction that has kept Tony away from her from the onset is the thought of Tiffany that has occupied his mind before he met Tricia,which he didn’t want to change or swap at any cost.

 

Hmmm. Tony sighed deeply.

 

How are you Tricia?Tony asked.

 

I am fine,Tony.Tricia replied sharply with a frown face.

 

Why are you frowning now?Tony probed.

 

I noticed that you started frowning and wearing a harsh look immediately you introduced me to Tiffany and you later discovered that we are somehow going on well,This has really being on my mind bothering me and I kept asking myself about what could have gone wrong or maybe I wronged you in a way I didn’t  know and understand.

 

Could you please help me out?

 

I am ready to apologize to you.Tony submitted.

 

Tricia was fast in making response after Tony paused from his submission.And she couldn’t really make anything out of her present disposition but she apologized to Tony that she has been somehow rude to him which is quite unexpected from her and directing it to someone like Tony is quite inappropriate and unacceptable.

 

You are still my person,Tony,Tricia concluded.

 

How will I know that we have bury the hatchet?Tricia asked.

 

What do you want?Tony replied by asking.

 

Give me a hug.Tricia responded.

 

A hug?Tony was shocked and wondered about what is going on in her mind.

 

Are you reluctant?Tricia asked Tony.

 

Nope.Tony replied.

 

After a few seconds of starring at each other,they both moved at an inch to each other and both exchange pleasantry with a hug and they both smile at each other.

 

Later,Tony took her out in the evening and Tricia felt secured and fulfilled once again but she is still nursing the ambition of having Tony as her love but Tony was busy nursing the ambition of having Tiffany as a wife in few year’s time.

How will I know that we have bury the hatchet?Tricia asked.

 

What do you want?Tony replied by asking.

 

Give me a hug.Tricia responded.

 

A hug?Tony was shocked and wondered about what is going on in her mind.

 

Are you reluctant?Tricia asked Tony.

 

Nope.Tony replied.

 

After a few seconds of starring at each other,they both moved at an inch to each other and both exchange pleasantry with a hug and they both smile at each other.

 

Later,Tony took her out in the evening and Tricia felt secured and fulfilled once again but she is still nursing the ambition of having Tony as her love but Tony was busy nursing the ambition of having Tiffany as a wife in few year’s time.

MLST FICTION:THE WRONG MOTIVE—EPISODE EIGHTEEN.—(10 MINUTES READ).

CHAPTER ONE.

 

Hope I didn’t delay you?I think I am a little bit behind our planned schedule.I ought to have ben around but I checked on Tricia to update her about my appointment with you so that she will be able to be at peace with herself if she didn’t see me on time.Tony started talking with Tiffany.

 

No problem.Tiffany replied.You are not late at all.We agreed to meet after church service,and now is after church service.Thank God that we are already meeting and you kept to your word.Thanks for coming around once again.Tiffany replied.

 

Hmmm.You are just reasonable and liberal to an extent.I thought you would have been crossed with me for delaying you.Anyway,thanks for accepting my profound apology.

 

No problem!!!Tiffany replied.

 

At this point, a resounding and a cold silence took over the ambience of where Tony and Tiffany sat down and they were both lost for words momentarily.

 

Let’s break the ice.Tony started talking.

 

I am all ears.Tiffany replied.

 

Immediately, Tony started narrating the ordeal he passed through last week Sunday when he sighted her from afar.He told her about his eagerness to meet her but as fate would have it, he was unable to meet her last week sunday which really affected his demeanour in the course of the week.

 

Why did you have to pass through all this just because of your eagerness to meet me?Why are you making me somehow important?I believing to suspect that something is fishy?Tiffany kept asking questions.

 

Which of the questions do you want me to answer now?Tony asked Tiffany with smiles on his face.

 

You can start from somewhere.I am here for you.Just start from somewhere, so that we can arrive somewhere coupled with the fact that Tricia is somewhere very eager waiting for you.Tiffany replied Tony.

 

The other time I saw you from afar,I realised that you are new in the church, though I couldn’t confirm this from anyone around but at a point something kept telling me that you are someone I need to meet.I planned meeting you today but as fate would have it, just by coincidence I met you in the morning while you were busy exchanging pleasantries with Tricia.Tony was talking while Tiffany was busy looking intently at Tony.

 

Eventhough, I am somehow shy and I am still wondering how you will feel about my proposal,I know that the only thing I could do to know you better is to ask for your hands in friendship.Tony submitted.

 

Friendship?Tiffany exclaimed.

 

How do you mean?Tiffany asked.

 

With a frown countenance, Tiffany demanded that Tony should explain more in order for her to get a better clarity about Tony’s intention and proposal.

 

I didn’t fix this appointment to hurt your feeling.I am someone that believed that there is a necessity for both of us to become close friends not on a squalid level but on a platonic level.I don’t think this request will be too heavy for you to grant me access to.Please, kindly, see my proposal the way I am seeing it.No string attached.Tony concluded.

 

No string attached!!!Tiffany exclaimed.

 

If there is no string attached, then I am registering my consent to your proposal.Tiffany replied in affirmation and she smiled .

 

Thank you for accepting my proposal.I am really grateful.Tony offered his appreciation.

 

 

I would be more grateful if we can both introduce ourselves and even have your contact so that getting along with you in the course of the week or when you travelled back to school will not be difficult in any way.Tony asked.

 

Immediately, both Tony and Tiffany started talking about themselves with a lot of questions being asked after the other.The expression of satisfaction was overwhelming on Tony’s face,although,Tiffany was satisfied meeting him too but she didn’t show any sign just to proof to him that she is tough and she is not a lady that any man can just ride on.

 

Immediately, both offered each other hand-shake and smiled while departing from each other but Tony promised her that he will be calling her in the course of the week.

 

Bye for now.Tiffany bids farewell.

 

Bye Tiffany.Tony replied.

 

They both walked down a little but separated from each other as Tiffany headed directly to the front exit of the church auditorium while Tony moved directly to the place where Tricia is seating.

 

While Tony was walking down to meet Tricia, his heart was filled with satisfaction but at thesame time he remembered that Tricia might have seen him talking with Tiffany and put on a funny attitude just as the way she did in the morning.

 

Where is this lady?Tony kept asking himself as he was unable to locate Tricia in the church auditorium.Tony was already becoming pensive when Tricia surface from another end of the church auditorium.

 

Where have you been? I have been looking around for you for the past 5 minutes.Tony asked.

 

Why do you want to know?Tricia replied with a harsh look.

 

Have I committed any wrong doing in asking about your whareabout?Tony asked Tricia.

 

You have no right and effontery to have a clue about my whereabout since you didn’t tell me what your appointment about Tiffany is all about.Tricia submitted.

 

At this point,Tony was surprised with her response and he went wild laughing to the point that his laughter drew attention of other members of the church that are still busy doing one thing or the other in the church.

 

What is funny now.Tricia asked.

 

You are just funny.You made me laugh.How can you be this serious with the appointment I had with Tiffany?Tony asked.

 

Ok!!Don’t let us create any scene.This is a public place.Just put yourself together and let us go home.We are late already and I believed that you are somehow famished.This might be the reason why you are bothered about me.Tony submitted.

 

Anyway, I appreciate your concern.Tony offered appreciation to Tricia.

 

No problem!!Let’s go home.Tricia agreed to go home with Tony.


MLST FICTION:THE WRONG MOTIVE—EPISODE NINETEEN.

 

 

CHAPTER TWO.

 

Quite strange.Where were you throughout today’s service?Are you just coming back from church at this time?

 

These were some of the questions bothering Tiffany’s mind as she was on her way home.She knew that her dad will be harsh with her just because they waited and called her to ask about her whereabout at the end of the service but she failed in picking her call.Though, it wasn’t intentional but it was due to network service that seems to be unstable.

 

She knew that her mum will be soft with her and she promised herself that she will narrate her ordeal words for words to her mum who has been her close confidante  and her secret-keeper on any issue bothering her mind.

 

Who is at the gate?A barritone voice echoed.

 

Is Tiffany Sir.

 

Ok!I am coming.Her dad replied.

 

Just as she has been thinking while on her way home.Immediately, her dad sighted her presence at the gate entrance, he started asking series of questions that centre around where she is coming from.Though, Tiffany was afraid replying him concerning all questions thrown at her face, she summoned courage to just mutter some few lines of words accompany with a terrifying look on her face.

 

I am sorry Sir.I missed your call and when I called back,it was as if the network service was unstable and flunctuating.I am very sorry for keeping you in the dark about my whereabout.

 

No problem.Her dad responded.

 

Your mum is resting in her room.You can go and see her because she is also bothered about your whereabout.Her dad submitted.

 

Tiffany quietly walked briskly into the house with a terrifying look on her face just to register her regret and apology to her dad who would have reign fire and brimstones if she didn’t put herself into an apology mode when he started asking question.

 

You are welcome ,my daughter.Where have you been that you didn’t bother to inform us even at the close of the service.Even though we waited for you in order to drive you back home but all our effort to locate you was abortive.It was when your dad was becoming fidgetting and annoyed that we left hoping that you will meet us at home.

 

Now that you are just coming is even late.What kept you waiting for so long after service?Maybe, you went somewhere?

 

At this point, Tiffany was quiet and she didnt bother to usher a single word but after some few minutes, she murmur to her mum’s telling her to be patience that she will gist her fully after she had has taken her lunch.

 

Ok.No problem.I will be waiting for your gist.Her mum nodded her head in affirmation.

 

Thank you Ma.

 

Hope your dad is not mad at you?Her mum asked.

 

Oh!!!H e nearly went mad with me.His face was filled with fury but I was able to calm her down by forcing myself into a state of apology that he cannot restrain.He was forced to understand and believe my cock and bull story.Though, I know that he noticed that what I told him is not sufficient enough as an excuse.Thank God that he didn’t bother me too much but he seems to be suspicious ans believed that something is wrong somewhere.It is just that he cannot fathom the rationale behind what happenned.

 

Anyway, by the time I am through with lunch, you would have been through with your siesta and we would be able to gist to a large extent.

 

Promise me that you will not tell my dad whatever I discussed with you.Tiffany asked her mum.

 

No problem.I promised to maintain a sealed and a controlled lips.

 

Thanks.Tiffany submitted.

25 PILLARS OF PROSPEROUS MARRIAGE?—(8 MINUTES READ).

INTRODUCTION.

 

Recently,prosperous and succesful marriage is gradually becoming scarce and it is speedily going into extinction in this present age.This was traced to been due to dearth or lack of basic underatnding of what the tenets of the institution of marriage entails and demand.

 

A prosperous marriage is a marriage that is not built on mere general and common definition that marriage is a union between  a man and a woman but when a marriage is established on a deeper and firm understanding that marriage is a union between a man,a woman and God,it will end up becoming blisful,beautiful,succesful and prosperous.

 

A prosperous marriage becomes achievable and a subject of physical reality when it is anchored on a tripatite arrangement and not on dual arangement of being  a union between mere mortals of man and woman but when it is built on a tripatite arrangement made by  divinity with its foundation erected on immortality that made God the originator and the source of marriage as a partner,such marital union can never hit the rock in the course of its existence.

 

Any marriage that is working blisfully and beautifully is a kind of marriage in which parties involved have a functioning understanding that each partner is a stakeholder and not slaves.

 

Any marital union in which partners involved contributes their quota in accordance to agreed convenanted and contractual  agreement accompanied with the context and concept of their relationship based on mutual,symbiotic and platonic understanding with respect for one another view,emotion and feelings can never be far from being a good description of a perfect marriage that is worthy of emulation and admonition.

 

Marriage becomes succesful without friction when you treat your partner,children and relatives as stakeholders and not as slaves with all the parties involved have a deep understanding of what their role in building prosperous marital foundation and edifice entails.

 

It is on the paltform of deep understanding of the basic binding force of marriage that love as one of the pillars of prosperous marriage can thrive smoothly without resentment,reluctance and rancour.

 

As earlier stated that love is one of the basic force that triggers the establishment and the entrenchment of relationship that ends up in marital union,it is worthy to note that love alone can never enhance, keep and maintain the smooth running of any marriage.

 

Love can simply be described and defined as a facilitator and a means through which the execution of responsibilities that are designed to make the purpose of marital union fulfilled.

 

No marital union can survive when the drive,urge and passion needed in fulfilling its purpose is not responsibly and smartly executed and carried out.

 

Don’t manage your marriage by mere mouthing of:

 

“I love you and I care for you.”

 

The essence of partners coming together or being yoked together as one in marriage is to take care of each other without any form of cheating,partialty and reluctance.

 

Since giving is synonymous in context and concept to love and it is in giving that the whole essence of love is revealed,then the maintenance of a succesful marital union demands this simple and common mantra that should become a guide for everyone who desire succesful marriage.

 

“I give you,you give me,”

 

“I rub your back,you rub mine.”

 

Our hands becomes cleaner when the right hand ans the left hand is engaged in cleaning each other.

 

Marriage entails and demands that partners should be equal and maintain balance in rubbing each others back.This is what guarantees safety and all-encompassing peace of mind once partners involved in marital union have this basic understanding and they are both ready to maximize and optimize this idea in the course of their mariatal bliss.

 

 

MARRIAGE 4
25 PILLARS OF PROSPEROUS MARRIAGE.

 

Asuccesful marriage becomes possible when partners involved uphold the tenets of equity and equality that are potent enough to project the existence and the entrenchment of other pillars of prosperous marriage.

 

The concept and context of equity and equality in marriage is all about theis common mantra:

 

“I keep you warm,you keep me warm”

 

On the contrary,partners involed in marital union who believed in the idealogy and philosophy of equity and equality should be matured enough by not allowing equity and equality as a form of misconception that will fan the amber of disrespect and dishonour chanelled towards destroying the self image of any of the partners or stakeholder involved in marriage.

MARRIAGE 2
25 PILLARS OF PROSPEROUS MARRIAGE.

 

These are some of the basic pillars that must be maintained before any succesful and prosperous marital union can be established.Though the foundation  might be laid by love but if other pillars are amiss,such marriage is bound to hit the rock in the course of time.

CONCLUSION.

 

 

MARRIAGE 1
25 PILLARS OF PROSPEROUS MARRIAGE.

 

There is a  need for every married couples and those who are planning and wishing to become married to seek for deeper understanding and learn the basic necessities of what should be done in the course of their marriage that will stand as an enhancer and a booster of blisful union.

 

Taking time to understand each other is necessary and it is on this that the birth of a succesful marriage will become possible.

Marriage is designed by God to be enjoyed and not to be endured but before the enjoyment needed in any marriage to become achievable, there is a need for personal discovery and appraisal on the part of couples involved.

 

It is when this is carried out that the understanding of the strength and weakness of each partner will be maximized to build a marriage that will be prosperous in the process of time.

 

Marriage is a project that demands constant and continuous investment on the part of all the stakeholders and it must be consciously carried out for the betterment of each of the parties involved.

 

Stakeholders involved must ensure that they contribute their quota in form of responses and responsibilities needed to build a blisful marital union.


(PAGE 3:CONCLUSION).

In view of all the aforementioned, I wish every married couple success in their marriage.

 

Happy New Month.

 

Welcome to the month of LOVE.

THE WRONG MOTIVE—EPISODE 2—(5 MINUTES READ).

CHAPTER ONE.

 

Tony was really distracted and carried away with what he saw afar off.He started pacing gradually in preparation for the next step as soon as the service is over but he became annoyed and impatient when the pastor-in-charge was too slow in winding up the service for the day.

 

As the benediction for the sunday service started wanning, Tony’s mind leapt for joy and happinness overshadowed his sense of reasoning to the extent that he became oblivious that he is in the presence of God.

 

The totality of his motive which was quite unexpected consumed him and he decided that immediately the concluding part of the benediction comes to an end, he will dashed and swing swiftly to the choir stand to engage the source of his distraction in a tété-a-tété.

 

As the last word of the benediction was dished out by the pastor-in-charge and the congregation chorused “Amen” in response,Tony dashed out from his row.

 

Peace be unto you…..Pastor-in-charge concluded the benediction.

 

“Amen”—the congregation chorused in response to the Pastor-in charge.

 

Go in Peace—-Pastor-in-charge concluded the service.

 

As the service reached conclusion,Tony was about rushing out of his seat when he sighted brother Timothy afar beckoning at him.

 


THE WRONG MOTIVE—EPISODE TWO–CHAPTER ONE.

 

CHAPTER TWO.

Bro.Tony!

 

Bro.Tony!!

 

Bro. Tony!!!

 

Tony has observed from afar that Brother Timothy is beckoning at him from afar and since he doesn’t want any disturbance and distraction that will mar the pursuit and the realisation of his wrong motive, Tony feigned ignorance and tried all he could do to dogde brother Timothy.

 

Bro. Tony,I need to see you….brother Timothy shouted at the top of his voice from afar.

 

The shout from Brother Timothy made other members of the church that are within the vicinity to help brother Timothy call upon Tony.

 

At this point,Tony had no choice other than waiting and pausing to give Brother Timothy attention by waiting for him and listen to him.

 

Afternoon brother Tony…..Brother Timothy greeted.

 

Afternoon Sir….Tony replied.

 

You are conspicuously absent from today’s workers’ briefing, I guess you came late.

 

Oh!!!

 

I am so sorry.

 

Of a truth, I woke up late and I came late to the church late.I couldn’t meet up with the early morning workers’ fellowship and briefing.

 

Anyway,I will ensure that I will be punctual next week.

 

It is a promise sir.

 

No problem brother Tony…Brother Timothy replied.

 

Just make sure that you put it in mind always that the bible admonished us to seek first the Kingdom of God and all his righteousness.God and the kingdom of God should be your priority and one of the ways by which you can ensure this, is by being active and fervent serving God and promoting all that pertains to the Kingdom of God.

 

You are right Sir…Tony replied.

 

I will be expecting you on time next week….brother Timothy continued.

 

Ok!

 

I promised to keep up with time….Tony replied.

 

While the conversation was ongoing, Tony was  panting and becoming impatient internally with Brother Timothy for holding him down against his wish of making sure he get a very good glimpse of the damsel that caught his attraction in the course of the service.

 

Are you going home now…Brother Timothy asked Tony.

 

No!

 

I need to see someone there sir…Tony replied.

 

I am asking so that I can give you a ride from here to your house or your junction….Brother Timothy replied.

 

Thanks for your concern Sir.

 

I appreciate….Tony replied respectfully.

 

After this,Brother Timothy stepped forward and bid Tony goodbye.

 

Within a twinkling of an eye, Tony disappeared with the speed of light pacing towards the choir stand but something kept telling him to always expect the unexpected but Tony made up his mind and decided to ensure that something meaningful comes out of his effort.

 

And Tony kept pacing and moving with his wrong motive that seems to have consumed his entirety on this fateful sunday.

 

While Tony was close to the choir stand, the die was cast and something happen.

 

What happenned?

 

Keep your fingers crossed for the next episode..

 

 

Watch out…….

THE WRONG MOTIVE—EPISODE 1.—(3 MINUTES READ).

CHAPTER ONE

It was a bright sunday morning at around 8am,Tony woke up late for  sunday service that has started 15minutes ago.Despite his lateness, he quickly dashed into the bathroom and took a shower for few minutes before he dashed back into his room to prepare himself for the sunday service.

 

Being a worker in the church and a fervent member of the Christ Healing Deliverance Mission International Church with his Headquarter in Lagos.Within few minutes, Tony was already by the road side looking for a bike to get him down to church since he resident not far away from the church.His journey to his church will take him just 15 minutes.

 

Bike!Bike!!Bike!!!….Tony beckon at a bikeman.

 

Can you take me down to Christ Healing Deliverance Mission International Church at Dolphin Road.

 

Ok!The bikeman replied.

 

My money is #100…..the bike man informed Tony.

 

No problem.Lets go…Tony hopped the bike and the bikeman zoomed off.

 

After 10 minutes of riding by the bike man,Tony signalled the bikeman about his readiness to alight infront of the church gate.The bikeman slowed down and engaged his break and slowly the speed of the bike came to a halt.

 

Tony got down from the bike, brought out his purse and paid the bike man.

 

Sir!

 

My money is #100…the bikeman called Tony’s attention.

 

Don’t worry, keep the balance, I am late already….Tony replied and dashed into the church.

 

Thank you Sir…Godbless you sir….I am grateful Sir….The bikeman replied.

 


WRONG MOTIVE—EPISODE 1—CHAPTER 1

 

CHAPTER TWO.

By the time Tony rushed into the church, the service has started and the pastor-in-charge has started the homily for the day.

Tony rushed again to get a seat and settled down  listening to the preaching of the day.

 

The homily of the day was handled by one of the firebrand pastor-in-charge of the church.

 

While Tony was struggling to settle down and align himself with the serenity of the environment and the calmness of the congregation, as he raised up his head,his eyes went straight into midst of the choristers ministering on this beautiful sunday.

 

Though, Tony was not surprised by the assembly of choristers that was around on this beautiful sunday morning.

 

After a few minutes, his face went towards the choir stand once again and Tony noticed that within the space of time he looked at the choir the first time, someone has joined the choir.

 

And since then, Tony starred and was unable to stop gazing at the choir side of the church till the end of the sunday service.

 

Infact, the presence of this new face became the only thing that caught Tony’s fancy throughout the sunday service.

 

Tony’s emotion and feelings became uncontrollable and he dedicated his time throughout the sunday service gazing at the chorister stand.

 

What a wrong motive!

 

Tony’s motive as planned for the day initially, is to get to the church on time and participate acitvely during the service but he came late.While he was in the church for the service, he was unable to pay rapt attention to the homily being dished out from the holy altar,he lost his attention and he was distracted by spending all his time in the presence of God gazing at a damsel that seems to be new in the church.

 

Then Tony decided to take the next step.

 

 

What is the next step?

 

Watch out for the next Episode.

25 PILLARS OF PROSPEROUS MARRIAGE?—(8 MINUTES READ).

INTRODUCTION.

 

Recently,prosperous and succesful marriage is gradually becoming scarce and it is speedily going into extinction in this present age.This was traced to been due to dearth or lack of basic underatnding of what the tenets of the institution of marriage entails and demand.

 

A prosperous marriage is a marriage that is not built on mere general and common definition that marriage is a union between  a man and a woman but when a marriage is established on a deeper and firm understanding that marriage is a union between a man,a woman and God,it will end up becoming blisful,beautiful,succesful and prosperous.

 

A prosperous marriage becomes achievable and a subject of physical reality when it is anchored on a tripatite arrangement and not on dual arangement of being  a union between mere mortals of man and woman but when it is built on a tripatite arrangement made by  divinity with its foundation erected on immortality that made God the originator and the source of marriage as a partner,such marital union can never hit the rock in the course of its existence.

 

Any marriage that is working blisfully and beautifully is a kind of marriage in which parties involved have a functioning understanding that each partner is a stakeholder and not slaves.

 

Any marital union in which partners involved contributes their quota in accordance to agreed convenanted and contractual  agreement accompanied with the context and concept of their relationship based on mutual,symbiotic and platonic understanding with respect for one another view,emotion and feelings can never be far from being a good description of a perfect marriage that is worthy of emulation and admonition.

 

Marriage becomes succesful without friction when you treat your partner,children and relatives as stakeholders and not as slaves with all the parties involved have a deep understanding of what their role in building prosperous marital foundation and edifice entails.

 

It is on the paltform of deep understanding of the basic binding force of marriage that love as one of the pillars of prosperous marriage can thrive smoothly without resentment,reluctance and rancour.

 

As earlier stated that love is one of the basic force that triggers the establishment and the entrenchment of relationship that ends up in marital union,it is worthy to note that love alone can never enhance, keep and maintain the smooth running of any marriage.

 

Love can simply be described and defined as a facilitator and a means through which the execution of responsibilities that are designed to make the purpose of marital union fulfilled.

 

No marital union can survive when the drive,urge and passion needed in fulfilling its purpose is not responsibly and smartly executed and carried out.

 

Don’t manage your marriage by mere mouthing of:

 

“I love you and I care for you.”

 

The essence of partners coming together or being yoked together as one in marriage is to take care of each other without any form of cheating,partialty and reluctance.

 

Since giving is synonymous in context and concept to love and it is in giving that the whole essence of love is revealed,then the maintenance of a succesful marital union demands this simple and common mantra that should become a guide for everyone who desire succesful marriage.

 

“I give you,you give me,”

 

“I rub your back,you rub mine.”

 

Our hands becomes cleaner when the right hand ans the left hand is engaged in cleaning each other.

 

Marriage entails and demands that partners should be equal and maintain balance in rubbing each others back.This is what guarantees safety and all-encompassing peace of mind once partners involved in marital union have this basic understanding and they are both ready to maximize and optimize this idea in the course of their mariatal bliss.

 

 

MARRIAGE 4
25 PILLARS OF PROSPEROUS MARRIAGE.

 

Asuccesful marriage becomes possible when partners involved uphold the tenets of equity and equality that are potent enough to project the existence and the entrenchment of other pillars of prosperous marriage.

 

The concept and context of equity and equality in marriage is all about theis common mantra:

 

“I keep you warm,you keep me warm”

 

On the contrary,partners involed in marital union who believed in the idealogy and philosophy of equity and equality should be matured enough by not allowing equity and equality as a form of misconception that will fan the amber of disrespect and dishonour chanelled towards destroying the self image of any of the partners or stakeholder involved in marriage.

THE WRONG MOTIVE—EPISODE 2—(5 MINUTES READ).

CHAPTER ONE.

 

Tony was really distracted and carried away with what he saw afar off.He started pacing gradually in preparation for the next step as soon as the service is over but he became annoyed and impatient when the pastor-in-charge was too slow in winding up the service for the day.

 

As the benediction for the sunday service started wanning, Tony’s mind leapt for joy and happinness overshadowed his sense of reasoning to the extent that he became oblivious that he is in the presence of God.

 

The totality of his motive which was quite unexpected consumed him and he decided that immediately the concluding part of the benediction comes to an end, he will dashed and swing swiftly to the choir stand to engage the source of his distraction in a tété-a-tété.

 

As the last word of the benediction was dished out by the pastor-in-charge and the congregation chorused “Amen” in response,Tony dashed out from his row.

 

Peace be unto you…..Pastor-in-charge concluded the benediction.

 

“Amen”—the congregation chorused in response to the Pastor-in charge.

 

Go in Peace—-Pastor-in-charge concluded the service.

 

As the service reached conclusion,Tony was about rushing out of his seat when he sighted brother Timothy afar beckoning at him.

 


THE WRONG MOTIVE—EPISODE TWO–CHAPTER ONE.

 

CHAPTER TWO.

Bro.Tony!

 

Bro.Tony!!

 

Bro. Tony!!!

 

Tony has observed from afar that Brother Timothy is beckoning at him from afar and since he doesn’t want any disturbance and distraction that will mar the pursuit and the realisation of his wrong motive, Tony feigned ignorance and tried all he could do to dogde brother Timothy.

 

Bro. Tony,I need to see you….brother Timothy shouted at the top of his voice from afar.

 

The shout from Brother Timothy made other members of the church that are within the vicinity to help brother Timothy call upon Tony.

 

At this point,Tony had no choice other than waiting and pausing to give Brother Timothy attention by waiting for him and listen to him.

 

Afternoon brother Tony…..Brother Timothy greeted.

 

Afternoon Sir….Tony replied.

 

You are conspicuously absent from today’s workers’ briefing, I guess you came late.

 

Oh!!!

 

I am so sorry.

 

Of a truth, I woke up late and I came late to the church late.I couldn’t meet up with the early morning workers’ fellowship and briefing.

 

Anyway,I will ensure that I will be punctual next week.

 

It is a promise sir.

 

No problem brother Tony…Brother Timothy replied.

 

Just make sure that you put it in mind always that the bible admonished us to seek first the Kingdom of God and all his righteousness.God and the kingdom of God should be your priority and one of the ways by which you can ensure this, is by being active and fervent serving God and promoting all that pertains to the Kingdom of God.

 

You are right Sir…Tony replied.

 

I will be expecting you on time next week….brother Timothy continued.

 

Ok!

 

I promised to keep up with time….Tony replied.

 

While the conversation was ongoing, Tony was  panting and becoming impatient internally with Brother Timothy for holding him down against his wish of making sure he get a very good glimpse of the damsel that caught his attraction in the course of the service.

 

Are you going home now…Brother Timothy asked Tony.

 

No!

 

I need to see someone there sir…Tony replied.

 

I am asking so that I can give you a ride from here to your house or your junction….Brother Timothy replied.

 

Thanks for your concern Sir.

 

I appreciate….Tony replied respectfully.

 

After this,Brother Timothy stepped forward and bid Tony goodbye.

 

Within a twinkling of an eye, Tony disappeared with the speed of light pacing towards the choir stand but something kept telling him to always expect the unexpected but Tony made up his mind and decided to ensure that something meaningful comes out of his effort.

 

And Tony kept pacing and moving with his wrong motive that seems to have consumed his entirety on this fateful sunday.

 

While Tony was close to the choir stand, the die was cast and something happen.

 

What happenned?

 

Keep your fingers crossed for the next episode..

 

 

Watch out…….

THE WRONG MOTIVE—EPISODE 1.—(3 MINUTES READ).

CHAPTER ONE

It was a bright sunday morning at around 8am,Tony woke up late for  sunday service that has started 15minutes ago.Despite his lateness, he quickly dashed into the bathroom and took a shower for few minutes before he dashed back into his room to prepare himself for the sunday service.

 

Being a worker in the church and a fervent member of the Christ Healing Deliverance Mission International Church with his Headquarter in Lagos.Within few minutes, Tony was already by the road side looking for a bike to get him down to church since he resident not far away from the church.His journey to his church will take him just 15 minutes.

 

Bike!Bike!!Bike!!!….Tony beckon at a bikeman.

 

Can you take me down to Christ Healing Deliverance Mission International Church at Dolphin Road.

 

Ok!The bikeman replied.

 

My money is #100…..the bike man informed Tony.

 

No problem.Lets go…Tony hopped the bike and the bikeman zoomed off.

 

After 10 minutes of riding by the bike man,Tony signalled the bikeman about his readiness to alight infront of the church gate.The bikeman slowed down and engaged his break and slowly the speed of the bike came to a halt.

 

Tony got down from the bike, brought out his purse and paid the bike man.

 

Sir!

 

My money is #100…the bikeman called Tony’s attention.

 

Don’t worry, keep the balance, I am late already….Tony replied and dashed into the church.

 

Thank you Sir…Godbless you sir….I am grateful Sir….The bikeman replied.

 


WRONG MOTIVE—EPISODE 1—CHAPTER 1

 

CHAPTER TWO.

By the time Tony rushed into the church, the service has started and the pastor-in-charge has started the homily for the day.

Tony rushed again to get a seat and settled down  listening to the preaching of the day.

 

The homily of the day was handled by one of the firebrand pastor-in-charge of the church.

 

While Tony was struggling to settle down and align himself with the serenity of the environment and the calmness of the congregation, as he raised up his head,his eyes went straight into midst of the choristers ministering on this beautiful sunday.

 

Though, Tony was not surprised by the assembly of choristers that was around on this beautiful sunday morning.

 

After a few minutes, his face went towards the choir stand once again and Tony noticed that within the space of time he looked at the choir the first time, someone has joined the choir.

 

And since then, Tony starred and was unable to stop gazing at the choir side of the church till the end of the sunday service.

 

Infact, the presence of this new face became the only thing that caught Tony’s fancy throughout the sunday service.

 

Tony’s emotion and feelings became uncontrollable and he dedicated his time throughout the sunday service gazing at the chorister stand.

 

What a wrong motive!

 

Tony’s motive as planned for the day initially, is to get to the church on time and participate acitvely during the service but he came late.While he was in the church for the service, he was unable to pay rapt attention to the homily being dished out from the holy altar,he lost his attention and he was distracted by spending all his time in the presence of God gazing at a damsel that seems to be new in the church.

 

Then Tony decided to take the next step.

 

 

What is the next step?

 

Watch out for the next Episode.

CELEBRITY NEWS:MEGHAN MARKLE HAS BEEN BAPTISED BY THE ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY USING HOLY WATER FROM THE RIVER JORDAN IN A SECRET CEREMONY AT CHAPEL ROYAL WITH PRINCE HARRY BY HER SIDE.—(7 MINUTES READ).

Meghan Markle has been baptised into the church of England in a secret ceremony with Prince Harry at her side.

 

The intimate 45-minute service was conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury at the Chapel Royal on Tuesday evening.

ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY.

 

They were joined by Prince Charles and Duchess of Cornwall,but neither Prince Williams nor the Queen were present.

 

Miss Markle’s baptism, which formally introduces her into the Anglican faith ahead of her wedding to Harry in two months,marks an important step on her transformation from divorced American actress to future granddaughter-in-law to the Queen.

 

The ceremony was a closely-guarded secret with only a handful of royal aides involved.

 

Miss Markle,36,had asked the 62-year-old Archbishop, Justin Welby, to lead the service after forming a close bond with him in recent weeks as he instructed her on the rites and sacraments of the church.

Her baptism was followed immediately by her confirmation,which means she will be able to join Harry, 33, at her Holy Communion.

 

Miss Markle did not need to become an Anglican in order to marry Harry in Church, but at the time of engagement last November she made clear she had chosen to be baptised and confirmed out of respect for the Queen’s role as the head of the church of England.

 

Insiders also said it was fitting that the Prince of Wales,who will be the next head of the churchattended the service.

 

Miss Markle and Harry will marry on May 19 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle.The marriage service will be conducted by the Dean of Windsor,David Connor with the Archbishop presiding as the couple make their vows.

 

Tuesday’s service observed from the full ritual of the church with Holy water from the River Jordan from the private Royal Family font poured on Miss Markle’s head.

 

The chapel Royal at St James’s Palace is particularly significant in Harry’s life as well as the history of the Royal Family.

 

It is where Princess Diana’s body lay for a week before her funeral in 1997 and where King Charles I received the Holy Sacrament before his execution in 1649.

 

The chapel also hosted Prince George’s christening in 2013.

 

Among those assisting with the service was the crown Jeweller Mark Appleby who brought the silverware used for Royal Family Christening.

 

This included a silver font,basin and flask of holy oil.

 

In accordance with tradition,Miss Markle had two sponsors, the equivalent of godparents,to support her in the baptism.

 

It is understood one supporter was a close girlfriend.

 

Miss Markle was following partly in the footsteps of the Duchess of Cambridge, who was baptised as an infant but had a private confirmation after engagement to Prince William.

 

The chapel Royal choir of six Gentlemen-in-Ordinary and ten children of the chapel-the oldest continuous musical organisation in the world-performed throughtout in the service.

 

It is not thought either Miss Markle’s mother,Diana Ragland,or her father, Thomas Markle,who are divorced travelled from US for the service.

 

However, it is understood there were 18 guests who after the ceremony walked to clarence House, where Charles and Camilla hosted a dinner.

 

Miss Markle’s multi-faith upbringing is not uncommon in California where she was born in 1981.

 

Her father, a retired Hollywood lighting director, was Episcopalia-the main US offshoot of the Anglican Church-while her mother belonged to another Protestant denomination.

 

After  her parents split,Miss Markle attended the Roman Catholic Immaculate Heart girls’ high school in Los Angeles, although she was not Catholic.

 

Her first husband Trevor Engelson was Jewish but she did not convert to his faith.

 

Thje couple met in 2004 and married in 2011 but weere divorced two years later.

 

Church guidelines suggest that Miss Markle may be interviewed about her divorce from Engelson a fil producer.

 

If such a conversation were to occur, the minister would ask if there had been ‘sufficient healing of the personal and social wounds’ from the divorce.

 

The church of England conducted 111,500 baptisms last year, of which 9 percent were those aged over 13.

 

Guidance from one church notes:

 

“If you are an adult and want to be baptised and/or confirmed, you must undertake a course of preparation called cathechesis.

 

“This takes place over several months in order to give you a thorough grounding in  knowledge of the christian faith.

 

Kessington Palace declined to comment .

25 PILLARS OF PROSPEROUS MARRIAGE.

 

Asuccesful marriage becomes possible when partners involved uphold the tenets of equity and equality that are potent enough to project the existence and the entrenchment of other pillars of prosperous marriage.

 

The concept and context of equity and equality in marriage is all about theis common mantra:

 

“I keep you warm,you keep me warm”

 

On the contrary,partners involed in marital union who believed in the idealogy and philosophy of equity and equality should be matured enough by not allowing equity and equality as a form of misconception that will fan the amber of disrespect and dishonour chanelled towards destroying the self image of any of the partners or stakeholder involved in marriage.

MARRIAGE 1
25 PILLARS OF PROSPEROUS MARRIAGE.

 

There is a  need for every married couples and those who are planning and wishing to become married to seek for deeper understanding and learn the basic necessities of what should be done in the course of their marriage that will stand as an enhancer and a booster of blisful union.

 

Taking time to understand each other is necessary and it is on this that the birth of a succesful marriage will become possible.

Marriage is designed by God to be enjoyed and not to be endured but before the enjoyment needed in any marriage to become achievable, there is a need for personal discovery and appraisal on the part of couples involved.

 

It is when this is carried out that the understanding of the strength and weakness of each partner will be maximized to build a marriage that will be prosperous in the process of time.

 

Marriage is a project that demands constant and continuous investment on the part of all the stakeholders and it must be consciously carried out for the betterment of each of the parties involved.

 

Stakeholders involved must ensure that they contribute their quota in form of responses and responsibilities needed to build a blisful marital union.


(PAGE 3:CONCLUSION).

In view of all the aforementioned, I wish every married couple success in their marriage.

 

Happy New Month.

 

Welcome to the month of LOVE.

CURRENT TRENDING TOPICAL ISSUE ON SOCIAL MEDIA– IS MONEY AND MATERIALISM A PARAMETER OF A SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGE?————————(15 Minutes Read).

Recently, a trending issue burst out of one of the social media platforms and it keeps spreading like a wild fire across other social media platforms without control and it boiled down to  dearth of understanding and scarcity of deep cerebral wherewithal that is massively on display in  every facet of human existence and endeavor in this generation.The furore generated by this tends towards unending arguments and divergent views about the responsibility of female folks against the responsibility of male folks towards successful marital bliss that is not entirely based on inordinate quest for money and materialism.

Ours is a generation of emptiness and the glamorization of extreme materialism are the major parameters believed to be the yardstick for the exhibition and display of success across every society in this generation.The cosmetic and superficial thought level on exhibition in this era makes the heart bleeds.

 

Confusion is obtainable and can be seen in every cycle of our society, the fabrics of our society keeps pulling apart because of the inordinate quest of this generation for money,mundanes and  materialism which seems to be uncontrollable across every area of human existence.

THE ESSENCE OF MONEY.

From every  practical perspective and observation, the usefulness and applications of money can be seen and viewed as a major item that add value to every contents and endeavour.

 

Elementary definition in its simplicity defines money as a medium of exchange for goods and services.This simple and basic definition confirmed the  eternal usefulness of money in the day to day activities of any society including marriage.

 

Even the benefits of money in keeping personal and private  affairs of people running successfully cannot be underestimated in anyway.Multifarious landmark achievements are impossible without the application of  money at one point or the other.Even, it was chronicled and confirmed by a particular portion of the bible that money answers all things.

 

The importance of money can be seen  everywhere around us.No human endeavor, no matter how simple or complex it might be can escape the dictates and influence of money.It influences and add value to a large extent the kind of life we live alongside the quality of our lifestyle.Influence and affluence often times than none can never be separated from the possession of money at our disposal.Even, our society misinterpreted the possession of money as as defining factor of good luxurious and influential life.

THE ESSENCE OF MARRIAGE

 One of the major institutions that is as old as the earth itself is the institution of marriage.It is the institution available and designed by GOD to keep humanity enlarging and increasing in population.Basic elementary definition explain marriage as a union between husband and wife.It is covenanted and instituted by GOD for procreation, enjoyment and companionship.It is the contribution from this institution that makes the world what it is today with a population of about 1.7 billion people occupying the surface of the earth.It has been able to uphold one of the first commandment of God that we should increase and multiply without any resistance,and humanity has been able to fulfill this commandment with the statistics of world population irrespective of famine, wars,genocide and terrorism that is trying a lot in pummeling and  decimating world population.No matter the situation available at a particular period, it can be seen that no policy has been able to stop humanity from reproducing and procreating.

 

 

CONFLICTS BETWEEN MONEY AND MARRIAGE.

The recent frequent upsurge and increase arising in the form of misconceptions that tends towards conflict and clash between the essence of money and the essence of marriage is gradually becoming a monster that can be described as an ill wind that will blow no one no good.The rate and speed at which issues of broken marriages obtainable from divorce and separation boiled down to misconceptions of the role of money and it’s influence on marriages to a large extent.

 

From previous aforementioned definition of money and marriage, it can be deduced that both are existing on a parallel line.These are two different things that  are important on their own and they can never be substituted for each other as an alternative.

 

If at creation, God prefers money to marriage, God would have commanded the first woman and the first man to increase in money and produce wealth but that command of producing and increasing given to them simply makes marriage to be quite separate from money.On a practical note , no one can shy away from the effect and importance of money to every human endeavor.

 

No doubt about it, money is important but marriage is far important than money.Often times than none, it is rare seeing a situation whereby money is celebrated openly or publicly with a vow and celebration except in the occultic and ritual cycle but marriages are always sealed with prayers and vows publicly with or without celebration.In the presence of contentment and commitment, marriage can survive the absence of money without any hassle and iota of stress. 

 

It is of essence to note that even though these two can be described as a two parallel lines, experience of life has shown that the two are two important entities that add values to our life, they both gives value to life especially  Africa society gives values and respect to whosoever is successful having both money and marriage. Approach to these two entities must be balanced before anyone can be seen to have a balanced lifestyle.

 

Extremism in obtaining and possessing money has been seen to be the source of many problems humanity is bedeviled with.Extreme approach to the issue of money will make the essence of marriage unattainable and non-achievable. Money is needed for every marriage to be successful but marriage should not be mortgaged or sacrificed for inordinate quest for materialism, any deviation from this will make marriage to be valueless and the essence and role of marriage as one of the institution that build a balanced society will be destroyed.

SCRIPTURAL STAND ON MONEY AND MARRIAGE.

It is quite appalling and disheartening getting wind of a trending issue on social media recently that has to do with a particular lady submitting that she can never marry a man that is not on a salary of 200 thousand monthly. This can be seen as  misconception and lack of understanding of what marriage is all about.With these unbending submission, many  married men would have been unmarried if every lady has this orientation.It is of importance to know that there will have been an upsurge of diverse social vices if everybody is holding on to this idea that can be tagged as  anti-social.The adverse effects of this anti-social approach would have surfaced in the society in the form of:

 

1.Many men will turn to desperados in other to make money,

2.Marriage will be an exclusive reserve of the well to do and money bags,

3.Poor men will be deprived of the opportunities to tie the knuptial knot,

4.More mature ladies will be kept on awaiting list even though menopause beckons,

5.It will cause population being decimated with the reduction in working class and the productive class of the population. 

6.Population dependent ratio will be on increase,

7.Productivity will decrease and Inflation might rise.

8.Increase in crime that has to do with rape and sexual perversion

9.Upsurge in the rate of conception out of wed-lock

 

It is common in our society now that when a man is marrying a woman that is unemployed or has no source of income, no one bothers to raise an eye brow to such marital relationship but when a lady introduces her hubby , the next thing from friends, family and familiar is to know whether he has a job or not.This is due to the fact that our cultures believed that it is the work of a man to take good care of his wife.Only God knows who construe such an idea that seems to be ineffective now putting into consideration the recent low ebbed economy being witnessed in all the nations of the world .

IS MONEY A PREREQUISITE FOR A SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGE?

To an extent, the possession of money and the accumulation of money is a pointer to progress and success in any human endeavour even in the course of marital union, it simply defines and exhibit bliss that is expected to be one of the outcomes of marital union.

On the contrary, it is quite impossible for a successful and blissful marriage to be achieved when the quest for money and materialism outweighs the quest to meet up with other demands of  a successful marriage in terms of dedication and commitment to the covenant of marriage that is eternally binding the partners involved.

For the uptenth time, a successful marriage leverages on abundance of money and other materials if it is available because money and other material can never be an end in itself for the success of a marriage, it is a means to an end not an end in itself.

What triggers marriage is love for one’s partner which must be added to with other virtues that are well known to be the foundation of successful marriage.No marriage can withstand the absence of responsibility, commitment, dedication, respect, mutual understanding and sacrifice.Even in the presence of all the monies in the world, if all these are absent, the marital union is bound to hit the rock.This can be traced to the reason why people that are known to be wealthy in the world are not known to be the only one having blissful and successful marriage but many poor people are on record to have successful marriage.

What makes marriage successful and blissful is not confined inside inordinate quest for money and materialism, it is far beyond items that we can hold with our bare hands, it is resident in our unequal drive to sacrifice the whole fibre of our being to make our marital union a success and something exemplary to others that are looking up unto us as their mentor.

Often times than none, extreme drives and urge to possess money and other materials kill marriage easily and it can be viewed to be the rationale behind broken marriages that are on increase everywhere in the world.

No one who successfully replaced the tenets of marriage with the quest and urge for materialism will ever have a successful marriage.Successful marriages are marriages that are not allowed to be weighed down by the quest for money and the urge for materialism but these are marriages that are built on upholding all the tenets of having successful marriage that rallies around love, dedication, commitment, sacrifice, mutual understanding and the ability to channel the whole resources at our disposal to make the marriage an example and testimony .

 

RELIGIOUS STAND, EFFECT AND SOLUTION.

The non-conforming sociocultural ideology  further entrenched in the fabrics of our society by the new generational preachers of the gospel that are fond of preaching that if anyman cannot take care of his house is worst than an infidel but recent flipping on the pages of the scripture reveals that provision in the house is a joint responsibility of the husband and the wife.This was revealed in the descriptive verse on the meaning of a good or virtuous woman In Proverbs 31.Even from this portion of the scripture, one can see that the largest portion of provision in the home falls on women.

This submission is not premised on the fact that men should be irresponsible in taking care of their home but it is premised as a source of correction and control to the myriads of demonic ideas being preached by many men of God to keep their subjects and subordinates in bondage.

With this trending issue, no wonder the increase in marital breakdown and the inability of many ladies to settle down is on increase and it looked as if GOD has refused to answer their prayer.It is not so.

The reason for the delay in their prayers not being answered can be traced to the content of their mind that is not at par with the plan of God for them.

Preachers of the gospel should tread slowly in passing what is not genuine biblically to their subordinate because it is not a gainsay in that confusion is greatly looming in Christianity. Every Child of GOD should pray for a partner that they will both engage in  taking care of each other not one partner taking the brunch of responsibility while the other is busy with frivolities and gallivanting around with no contribution to the plight of others.

It is pertinent and important for every child of GOD to meditate on the word of GOD.What makes someone matured in his or her work in Christianity is having personal encounter with God.All the trailblazers in the scripture had personal encounter with God.Abraham, Jacob, David, Joseph, Solomon, Paul, Jona, etc had personal one- on- one  relationship with God not with any man of God.

An itch free walk with God demands taking personal genuine scriptural and spiritual steps with God because GOD wants to know you by your name and call you by your name as GOD called little Samuel by his name when he was living with Prophet Eli. God is never interested knowing you through the taxonomy of your denomination and through your General Overseer.Though , this is necessary for baby Christians but matured Christians needs to have their names on God’s call line in order to enjoy personal one on one conversation with God that is devoid of any human medium.
