Fondness cannot guarantee a ‘happily ever after’ marriage – Counsellor


Fondness cannot guarantee a ‘happily ever after’ marriage – Counsellor

Contrary to expectations of some would be couples, the hope of a problem-free marriage is simply erroneous, according to a marriage counsellor.

Rev Kofi Boateng, a marriage counsellor at the Charismatic Evangelical Ministries (CEM) Ghana, insists that it is never possible for any marriage to mirror the fairytale mantra “happily ever after”.

Speaking on the topic, “Can there be marriage without challenges?” on Joy FM’s flagship family and relationship show, Home Affairs, he described as an ‘illusion’ the perception that their fondness of each other would guarantee a journey of no problems.

“Typically, if you have been well oriented, you would know that you’re bound to face all sorts of differences and challenges in marriage,” he told the host Edem Knight -Tay.

Nevertheless, he was concerned that such efforts may be may fruitless because “when young people are getting married for the first time, the excitement of the engagement and wedding, somehow inhibits their reception of the things you tell them.”

The marriage counsellor added that despite the inevitability of challenges in marriages, many people are living in very fulfilled marriages.

He added, “just because a few people may be troubled in their marriages, it doesn’t make marriage a bad thing.”
