The alarming rate of infidelity in marriage is scary. Brothers are now more afraid to even get married. Some shared their fears with me recently.
Even sisters are scared of brothers too. Let's be honest with ourselves.
The back and forth about DNA has created many controversy.
However, all this didn't start today. The abominable is now seen as a norm in our present day society.
A generation that sees no big deal in having sex once you're in a relationship. They believe once you are in a relationship, you are doing "the do." What a mindset!
Those not doing it are even scared to discuss with their friends. You will see a brother practicing sexual purity with you acting like you are doing the do when his friends are around. How did we get here?
We keep saying ladies can't be trusted. Unku, can you also be trusted?
If we truly desire true change. It starts with You and I. Be the change you want to see around you. Set principles for your relationship and live by it. Aunty, if truly you want to practice sexual purity, be real about it. Not one leg in, one leg out. You think the man will trust you on the long run when he couldn't trust you completely when you were in a relationship. Uncle, let's know what you stand for. Some of you will claim to be keeping a lady and messing around with others. Who does that? And some sisters will still agree to marry such a brother. Kai! And, you expect him to be faithful to you in marriage. You saw the signs but chose to ignore.
People change. But, most of the time. People who practice infidelity in marriage already showed signs of it during courtship. You just didn't pay attention or you were too eager to get married.
The earlier we begin to tell ourselves the truth, the better.
I pray God helps our generation. Amen.
Prayer Point: Abba Father, every seed of unfaithfulness in me that has not even spring forth waiting for me in marriage. Purge it out in the name of Jesus. Help me to be sincere and faithful to my husband/wife alone and to share my body with him/her only.
To your relationship success.
