Divorce is on the rise because young couples can’t endure hardship – Gospel singer, Funmi Aragbaye

Nigerian gospel singer, Funmi Aragbaye, has asserted that the high rate of divorce among young couples today is as a result of their failure to endure hardship in marriage.

The veteran musician made the statement in an interview as she explained that happiness in marriage is, however, not dependent on how rich one’s partner is.

She said; “The major cause of divorce among young couples is the fact that they cannot endure hardship with anybody. And, they prefer getting married to rich people. However, happiness in marriage is not dependent on how rich one’s spouse is. Young people should always seek divine direction from God before they get married.

They should find out about the families of their would-be spouses, and not just focus on how rich they are. There are some families with peculiar ancestry curses that one should avoid. Young people should also learn to endure, be patient and rugged, and be understanding.”

The gospel artiste also adviced upcoming gospel musicians against misbehaving and taking personal issues to social media.

In her words; “Bringing issues involving members of the association on social media for reconciliation is not good for the reputation of GOMAN. I advise young gospel musicians to amicably resolve differences among themselves without bringing them on social media.

It is apparent that some gospel musicians cannot manage stardom, and some cannot even comport themselves on stage. They should work on those areas for the overall interest of the association. The elders of the association are looking at ways of ensuring the sustenance of harmony and decorum among members.”
