Nigerian musician, Obiwon has noted the three things he feels make a good marriage and the three things that are necessary, but not essential to a marriage.
Obiwon has been married to his wife, Nkechi for 7 years, so it seems he knows a thing or two about keeping a home and in an Era where there are celebrity breakups left, right and center, it’s nice to hear some good news on the marriage front.
In a Facebook post, Obiwon said that while sex and money can help enhance a marriage, there aren’t the absolutes of any home.
In his words:
In my little years married and from what I’ve seen, I realize:
1. Money does not make a good marriage
2. Great sex does not make a good marriage
3. Children do not make a good marriage
Surely these three things enhance marriage but they do not form the foundation. I opine that ultimately a good marriage is made of:
1. Two friends.
2. Fully and mutually yielded to God.
3. Fully and mutually submitting to each other, yielding humbly and unselfishly to one another, daily.
That to me is the foundation that withstands everything in the world and the imperfections of our human nature. After these than the first 3 can be added as the icing on the cake. If you’re reading this. My prayer for you is this foundation! Solid as a rock!
Nothing special. Just to say I love you @nkechisgram
Obiwon has gone through a lot recently as he revealed in a post a few months ago where he narrated how God saved him from a terrible illness.
“I’m thanking You, God, from a full heart, I’m writing the book on your wonders. I’m whistling, laughing, and jumping for joy; I’m singing your song, High God. Psalm 9:1-2 MSG
“On this day a year ago I entered what was the most trying season of my life. It was a matter of life and death. What seemed to be fever with stomach pain dovetailed into a complicated matter with my abdomen. After an initial misdiagnosis, while my situation got worse, I was by a divine stroke of mercy evacuated at the nick of time as an emergency case to another hospital
“On the journey to the other hospital, I could feel myself slipping. I was so weak I couldn’t talk. My stomach was bloated. I didn’t mind leaving bearing in mind the pain I had been through for about a week by then, but at that point, God reminded me of my wife and children who would bear the brunt if I gave up easily”
He revealed how Gospel artiste Nathaniel Bassey was also of help to him.
We thank God for the life of Obiwon, we’ve lost too many people this year, it’d be horrible to lose yet another.
