Tade and Fisayo got married few weeks ago. Some of their friends went to visit then, they met them watching a show on television, but unfortunately, the electric power was interrupted and the unbelievable became revealed. There was a deep silence in the house, so much that their friends thought their visit was not welcome, only to discover that these two people did not find anything interesting about each other, they got married for some important but wrong reasons. At one time and another, Tade tried to break the silence, but his topics were not interesting to Fisayo, so each conversation only last few words.
One of their visitors, being a relationship counsellor, invited Tade for a walk, requesting that Tade show him round their big and exquisite house. While they walked, he began to ask Tade questions about how he met Fisayo, and how their courtship went. The truth was revealed to the relationship counsellor; Tade married Fisayo because Fisayo is intelligent and her intelligence will bring rapid growth to his business and give him an edge over competitors. Fisayo also married Tade because Tade is rich and , so she is sure of living a luxurious life. When they got married, they find their marriage very boring, obviously not what they wanted, the only time and place they get along is at work, in the office. They were not friends, they were just colleagues.
Please and please, marry your friend! Don’t marry a stranger that nothing about him or her does not interest you. Marriage is a life-time journey, do not go into it for the wrong reasons, which will soon fade away. Tade and Fisayo are not enjoying their marriage, they are enduring it. Marry your friend. Marry someone that just looking at him or swells up joy from your innermost being or make you have goose-bumps. Do not marry a stranger. Though all friends started as strangers, but if you must marry a stranger, spend quality time together to build friendship and develop interest for each other. Do not jump the stage of friendship, it is arguable the most important stage before marriage, it is friendship that remains during friendship and keeps the marriage, relationship and courtship will pass away.
Let us stop here on the relationship segment of Wisdom Bank, join us again next week for the next relationship segment of Wisdom Bank. But hear this truth; IF YOU MARRY YOUR FRIEND, THERE WILL SUPERNATURAL JOY IN YOUR HOME, BUT IF YOU MARRY ANYONE THAT IS NOT YOUR FRIEND, WHAT YOU WILL HAVE IN YOUR HOME WILL BE MECHANICAL JOY. WHEN FRIENDS ARGUE, THEY KNOW HOW TO RESOLVE IT. BUT WHEN STRANGERS ARGUE, IT LEADS TO FIGHT(OR DIVORCE). THEREFORE, ENSURE YOU MARRY YOUR FRIEND…BE WISE…!!!
Raising a purpose-driven generation.
