He said most marriages were also dead but the couples lived together in pretense, thus deceiving everybody.

Mr Whyte was speaking on the topic, “Developing a Healthy Perpetual Marriage” at the 10th Anniversary Breakfast Meeting of the Young Adults Fellowship (YAF) of the Osu Ebenezer Congregation of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana.

He said most Christian married couples were being carried away by the type of married models in society and this had affected and destroyed many.

He said as Christians, couples had a duty and the responsibility to live well and honour God through their marriages.

“Honour God as he has called you to do,” he emphasised.

He said a lot of people entered into marriages not in the biblical or scriptural way but rather, they entered into marriages just copying from their parents and society, which sometimes did not end well for them.

“If we resolve to Biblical marriages rather than copy from parents and society, then we will be honouring God,” he said.

He also urged parents and society to stop putting pressure on the un-married young ones.

YAF is a group of young adults with ages between 30 and 40 in the Presbyterian Church of Ghana. Currently, the group at the Osu Ebenezer Congregation is made up of 170 energetic young men and women.

The Group is expected to serve as the pool from which the Church can draw reliable professionals such as managers, lawyers, engineers, doctors, pharmacists, teachers, architects, scientists, ministers and all other profession.

Mr Lionel Nii Odartey Margnis, the President of YAF, said the group was one of the backbones of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana and the development of the fellowship was extremely important as it was a reflection of the growth of the church as a whole.

He said since its conception, the fellowship had carried out various programmes and activities to address the spiritual, social, psychological, and health needs of members, as well as strengthened its membership.

He said as part of the 10th Anniversary, YAF was seeking to raise funds to support the Osu Maternity Home.

He said the Anniversary was an eight-month-long celebration with various activities and programmes with the climax in September.

Pastor Jerry John Panou, a Resource Person, speaking on, “Is Social Media Snatching Your Partner”? called on couples to regulate their use of social media to avoid its effect on their marriages.
