Brother Sammy, the controversial gospel musician, is at it again, this time with a statement that touches on the taboo topic of marriage.
He elaborated on his stance by noting that although kids will always have your back, a spouse will often “varnish” over issues. Thus, he explained;
To me, raising a family is more important than finding a life partner and tying the knot. Simply said, if you become bedridden, your kids will be right there and your spouse may opt to find someone else.
Brother Sammy told a story to illustrate his point about a man who did nothing when his pregnant wife started having contractions. Many formerly happy couples, he said, have become antagonistic.
This caused him to liken marriage to a prison and advise prospective inmates to take their time and prepare thoroughly.
Getting married is hip. My only piece of advice is to take your time when choosing a spouse. Clearly, this is a confined space. Don’t feel pressured to get married just because others have done it and are now passing away. Marriage is a major cause of death.
