The presiding Bishop of the Eastern West Africa Episcopal District of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, Bishop Michael Frencher, has described as alarming, the rate at which young Christian couples divorce in Nigeria.
Frencher stated this yesterday while speaking at the second anniversary celebration of the City Light Family, a group within the Bishop White African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.
The bishop, who was represented by his administrative assistant in-charge of Port Harcourt Nigeria Conference, Rev. (Mrs.) Boye Finecountry, said to minimize the rate of divorce among Christian couples, there is the need to inculcate further Christian virtues in the families.
The cleric said, “The only thing that needs to be done to minimise divorce among young Christian couples in Nigeria and elsewhere is to inculcate Christian virtues on families. The issue is that in marriage, you are not looking at the right person; you are trying to become the right person because it is the sacrifice you make towards the family that keeps it going.
