Why men fail in marriages, Pastor Adeboye reveals

Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG has given reasons why most men are failing in their marriages.

Adeboye in a post while celebrating his wife’s birthday on his Official Instagram page said many men are failing because they want to establish they are the head of their wives.

He wrote: “Many men are misbehaving in their marriages simply because they want to establish that they are the head of their wives.

“My wife is my number one fan, she wrote in the book Mathematics of Marriage – which we co-authored, that as my helpmate, she knows she cannot help me without my instructions, so when they come, her response is yes sir.”

The RCCG overseer further advised young women to take lessons from his wife and stop leaving their primary duties and cooking to the domestic staff.

According to him, his wife does not delegate her primary duties to anyone else and she is the only partner of the Adeboye Corporation.

Adeboye stressed that it is a terrible thing for the husband to feel his wife is 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.

” Busy as my wife 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.

“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.”

“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?.

“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. The Bible in Ephesians 5:23 says:“For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church,” Adeboye wrote.

Adeboye further advised women to make up for their husband’s weaknesses, celebrate his successes and be his number one cheerleader.
