Marriage can be compared to a sensitive plant. It needs to be nurtured and cared for so that it can grow. If the plant is neglected, it will wither and die.
Similarly, give a marriage the attention and care it needs, and it will grow.
To promote successful marriages, I call on the Ministry of Social and Family Development to invite couples who marriages have passed the test with flying colours to conduct motivational talks and workshops.
Most certainly, if we put our heart and soul into building a solid partnership, we will experience the depths of joy and happiness a fulfilling marriage can bring.
