Marriage is a union meant for two people in love. However, these days, marriage appears to be a dicey situation.
Despite that, some couples have proven that love and good marriages still exist with their own relationship stories.
One of Nigeria’s popular men of God, Pastor Adeboye, recently took to social media to celebrate his wife on her 72nd birthday.
The preacher showered several accolades on his wife as he acknowledged how he is still her head in the home despite how powerful she is. The pastor used his wife’s birthday as an opportunity to teach young ladies lessons in place of their mistakes.
“Today is my wife’s birthday and there are lessons that women, especially so many young brides can learn from her. She is a powerful woman, I know that.
"She has many people who take instructions from her, but as powerful as she is, and even though she has seen me in my weakest moments, I have no doubt that I am her head.
"It does not matter what is on her itinerary if I say I would like you to go with me to so and so place the best she can do is try to convince me otherwise. If I insist, she would cancel whatever she was to do and come along with me.”
Explaining further, the man of God said that a man is the head of the home and that it is a terrible thing for a man to feel like the woman is taking his place as the head.
“The husband is the head of the wife. No matter how educated or successful you are, your husband is your head and you must regard him as such at all times. It is a terrible thing for a husband to feel his wife is his head.
"Many men are misbehaving in their marriages simply because they want to establish that they are the head of their wives.”
Further in the post, Adeboye revealed that his wife still cooks for him and serves his meals. He said that she does not relegate her primary duties to anyone else.

“Busy as she is, she still cooks my meals and serves me herself. Many young ladies these days leave everything to the house help. My wife still trims my nails for me.
"There was a time when I was a teacher and was staying far from town. She had to cut my hair during that period. She is the only partner of the Adeboye Corporation; she doesn’t delegate her primary duties to anyone else.
"Just like the virtuous woman described in Proverbs 31:1-31, I safely rest on my wife. Anything I uphold, she upholds too. Can your husband rely on you?”

In the mood of celebration, the man of God took to his official Instagram page to share a video of him showering prayers on his wife.
The video showed the clergyman with a microphone in a place that looked like his sitting room. His wife was spotted kneeling on the floor as her husband showered prayers on her.
