- Pastor Josephine Nguu said married couples should live together unless it is completely impossible
- Nguu said distance in marriage create a vacuum for infidelity
- The woman of God also said couples should also communicate their feelings to each other in case they feel something is wrong in the relationship
They say grass is always greener where you water it.
Perhaps it is on the premise of this wise saying that Pastor Josephine Nguuh of Christ Is the Answer Ministries (CITAM) reminded married couples to continue working on strengthening their relationships.
Opportunity for cheating
Speaking in Hope FM, the woman of God urged couples in matrimony to avoid living far from each other because, according to her, the distance creates a vacuum for infidelity in marriage.
The pastor said couples should try and live together unless it is completely impossible.
"Living far away from one another as couples brings an opportunity to sin. Try to live together unless it is completely impossible. It is the sure way to grow strongly together," she said.
Open communication in marriage
Nguu also asked lovers in a union to embrace honest communication, especially when cheating has invaded their marriage.
She said spouses should talk to each other if they feel the love for their partners is dwindling.
"Be open, be honest and share your areas of weakness and help one another- Marriages work, it is hard work but it is good work," the cleric said.
