Don't marry a girl who cannot cook.... Pastor E.A Adeboye. But before you comment it is better that you read the whole message in full

Pastor Adeboye Message on Marriage

During a RCCG Youth Convention 4 years ago (2012) with the Theme: Unstoppable Generation, Daddy G.O. spoke to his children on the issue of marriage as a father, life coach, mentor, shepherd and one who has been in the business of marriage for over 4 decades. It is expected of him to direct these young leaders in the way of the Lord in order for them not to depart from the truth (which is Jesus Christ).

It is also important to note that this charge was given to those who see him as a spiritual father and head.

Daddy G.O./RCCG believes that if anyone misses it in the place of marriage, it will be difficult for such fellow to make it to heaven (that is against our vision). And, with the alarming rate of divorce (which God hates - Malachi 2:16) in our society today, it is imperative to address the issues leading to divorce.

Pastor Adeboye, as a Father indeed and with the heart of a loving Father advised the youth on few things that leads to broken home or a hell on earth home. Like a saying, it is better to learn from the mistakes of others than to use our lives as an experiment due to our foolishness.

In lieu of this, Pastor E.A. Adeboye gave the following advice to the youth which also have scriptural backings.

1. Don't marry someone who does not believe in holiness...
Holiness is the foundation of every successful marriage. If a man and woman believes in God and obey all His commandments they will overcome every marital challenges that might come their way and come out victorious.

2. Don't marry a man without a job...
The first man that was created had a job before He was given a wife. Genesis 2:15.

A man should be able to take care of the basic needs in the family in order to have a blissful home. No woman deserves to suffer from the inception of her marriage and a man that loves his wife would never want her to suffer.

The same woman that claims to love you will start to redefine the meaning of her love for you when she and her children are not being catered for.

You might not have the best job in the world but you need a steady source of income to keep the family running.

Please read Proverbs 31 before continuing

3. Don't marry a girl that cannot pray...
The bible says, 'He who findeth a wife findeth a good thing and obtaineth favour from the Lord.' (Proverbs 18:22).
Favour doesn't come by playing; you have to pray it into fulfillment.
Without prayers, a family would sink in the storm of life.

Men are also expected to be spiritual heads of their homes. A prayerless home is a powerless home. Jeremiah 29:12, Romans 12:12, Colossians 4:2, 1 Thessalonians 5:17.

4. Don't marry a girl who is lazy...
A virtuous woman is expected to keep her home. Proverbs 14:1, Proverbs 31.
Spending the rest of your life with a woman that is not willing to work and indifferent about idleness is not the best. As a lady, you have to be industrious. Proverbs 10:4, Proverbs 31:27-28.

5. Don't marry a girl who cannot cook...
A virtuous woman is expected to prepare meals for the family. Proverbs 31:14-15.
Cooking is not a difficult skill to learn, even if you don't have it, learn it.
It has been said that, one of the fastest way to a man's heart is through his belly.

It is not healthy, economical or wise for a family to live on junks, fast foods, etc.

These few tips can go a long way in making a marriage blissful.
And as children of God, we are expected to have glorious homes worthy of emulation.
Marriage can either make or mar a destiny.

Be Wise!
