Bight Newspaper understand that newly married couples have been advised to build their matrimonial homes on faith in God as well as trust each other for their marriages to stand the test of time.

Bayelsa State Deputy Governor, Senator Lawrence Ewhrudjakpo, gave the advice at the weekend during a wedding reception in honour of former Miss Sophia Oguru, daughter of former Secretary to the State Government, Professor Edmund Allison-Oguru, and her heartthrob, Mr. Daniel David.

Speaking as special guest of honour at the event held at the Golden Tulip Hotel, Onopa, Yenagoa, Senator Ewhrudjakpo described matrimony as one of the most important sacraments of the church, noting that it was the first social institution established by God at creation.

While drawing attention to the fact that the first public miracle performed by the Lord Jesus took place at a marriage ceremony, he called on Mr Daniel David and his wife not to lose sight of the fact that the family is the first place of worship of God.

In a statement issued by his media aide, Mr Doubara Atasi, on Sunday, the Deputy Governor further admonished them to avoid absolving themselves of blame when wrong, being unnecessarily accusative and abusive, as doing so could ruin their relationship.

Senator Ewhrudjakpo also charged them to imbibe politeness, patience, trust for each other, and prayerfulness as a habit for their life-long journey of marriage to be truly successful.
