The founder and leader of the Eastwood Anaba Ministries, Reverend Eastwood Anaba has advised the youth to shun away from luxurious marriage ceremonies.
The man of God holds a strong view that marriage isn’t all about the ceremony and wedding rings but rather the bond between to lovers who have agreed to love and cherish each other.
He mentioned that lately most youth see marriage as a mere ceremony and not a journey hence spending huge money on ceremonies instead of doing something simple and then live happily after.
”Don’t wait for money to marry. For some of you the reason why you are wasting time to marry is because you are waiting for money. You don’t even understand marriage. Marriage isn’t the ring, it’s the relationship. So if you are going to marry and you don’t have money for 24 Karat gold, go and look for copper that resembles gold”.
”There is no point getting for 24 gold and after that you are owing 24 Karats. The marriage is not the ring. Show me where in the Bible do they say when you are going to marry you must have a gold ring, show me where in the Bible did they say when you are going to marry you must cut a high cake, wear a wedding gown. There are a lot of things which are not imperative. The truth is that there are things I don’t know how to do. One of the things I can’t do is wedding, I have never blessed a wedding ”, he said to his congregation”.
