Marriage is an institution that is not just recognised by humans but is also steeped in religious beliefs so that most religions have laid down rules and regulations that guide love, relationships and the way and manner weddings are conducted.
A wife of the general overseer of a reputable church has, in light of this, created a buzz on Twitter with her controversial assertion about how couples intending to get married should conduct their affairs.
The general overseer's wife whose name is Foluke Adeboye gave this stance during a church programme about marriage and relationships. The session was held at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, the church that her husband presides over.
Extracts from her words were posted on Twitter while the programme was ongoing. Most of her words were general acceptable truths that generated no opposing reaction.
However, one particular tweet mirroring the words of the pastor generated a controversy. According to what was posted, Foluke Adeboye said that a couple seeking endorsement for their marriage ought to go to their pastor first before going to their parents.
These were her exact words:
"There should be no confusion in the house of God. You have to go to your Pastor first to consult for marriage before your parent."

This statement stirred many Nigerian Twitter users and caused them to make comments on the post. Many of them were not pleased with the statement of the wife of Enoch Adeboye. They tagged it as a stray from religion as it is known.
One of those who commented simply laughed off the assertion. See some of the reactions here:

It is evident that Nigerians do not see this as the right way of going about marrying the person one loves. Whether or not Foluke Adeboye's assertion is right is left to every one's reasoning.
