NGO charges couples to strengthen marital bond
A non-governmental organisation, Joyfully Married Foundation (JMF), has charged couples to strengthen their bond of love through ceaseless and honest communication, irrespective life circumstances.
JMF Convener, Oluranti Odutola, who gave the charge during its marriage clinic series, themed, ‘Essence of communication in marriage,’ held in Lagos, said it was disheartening that a lot of couples have resorted to divorce over issues that could be resolved if communicated properly through the right channels in marriage.
Odutola stated that marriage should be an avenue for mankind to procreate and share values that would be beneficial to society, urging couples to avail themselves of all modes of communication for better understanding, as well as recall beautiful early days to foster love between them.
Also speaking, a marriage coach, Mr. Olalekan Oyekan, said communication in marriage is important to birth understanding between couples and reinforces the purpose of the relationship.
Oyekan, who affirmed that breakdown in communication causes quarrels, said every marital split is hinged on misunderstanding and advised couples to tolerate each other and avoid assumptions-based communication.
A participant at the clinic, Mr. Biodun Onayele, who is the Director General of Lagos State Records and Archives Bureau said honesty between couples would engender a lasting union.
