There are sad relationship/marriage stories spread by the use of social media, which happens to be where most young people spend their spare time.
Obviously, there's no way anyone could ever miss the depressing stories that daily surface about bad marriages and terrible partners.
But that is really not all there is to marriages and relationships and a London-based Nigerian, Olabiwonninu Olubori, is on Instagram, trying to spread the word about the beauty and happiness that marriages could be about if young people will stop being scared.
Olubori, who has been married for 21 years uses her lovely marriage as an example and writes yesterday, August 30, that:
“I'm doing this to let people believe that there is still joy in marriage because, I read on social media that our youth are scared of marriage this days as if marriage is all doom, gloom, violence and sorrow.
“Most people wants their children to get married eventually but our children are fed up with negative and sorrowful news about marriage on social media and they are scared.
“The fact that one marriage didn't work doesn't mean you cannot marry again neither does it discredit the institution of marriage as ordained by God.
“As most youth don't want to marry again, understand that marriage is about love, patience, respect, understanding, trust, endurance, forgiveness and tolerance.
“Though, this is not the month of my marriage and me and my husband are not celebrating our marriage anniversary but we are creating a positive impressions to the younger generations that you can celebrate your marriage every time and everywhere you have the opportunity and not once in a year.
“Every human being has what they like and what gives them joy.
“I love words of love, reassurance and proposal to make me feel like a new bride every time and he enjoys doing it...
“My king bought me a new ring after I lost one of my wedding rings and he proposed to me again when we went to Bluewater shopping centre to buy a phone the same day we bought the new wedding ring...
“Devils love to hear about home breakup and it's the latest and hottest news that is on trend but the word of God says, God hates divorce, in book of Malachi 2 verse 14 to 16...
"Marriage is good, Marriage is fun. Don't allow others to redefine you."
There you have it guys, marriage is what you make of it - a safe, happy haven or a terrible place where sadness never ceases.
Choose happiness, people!
