DEJI & YEMI ADENUGA (DY RELATIONSHIP CLINIC) ON RELATIONSHIP
We are so excited to be a part of this brilliant initiative and for the opportunity to be able to share thoughts and experiences with you on building a home and marriage. We congratulate FAJ, Iretunde and the entire Treasure’s team – and hope that as you cruise along with us you’ll not only enjoy the time you spend reading this column, you will also allow us and others to learn from you too through your questions and shared experiences.
Over the past 30 years of knowing each other and 23 years of being married, we have been through so many ups and downs, and as we survived each event, we became stronger and better as individuals and as a couple. Each huddle we have crossed has today become our success story and has built the foundation for the authority with which we boldly say, ‘any relationship can work, it’s a conscious decision’. It’s not an easy task to make a marriage work, it takes a lot to keep it together and not kill each other along the way. But with God at the centre, determination, a forgiving spirit, understanding, friendship and a conscious agreement between the two people involved, it can certainly stand the test of time.
This column may not necessarily be for everyone, but it would certainly benefit anyone who desires or is still interested in finding and maintaining happiness and joy in their homes. It may also be helpful to anyone who is probably feeling down in marriage but is hopeful that things can be better. We will give you the tools to help rekindle your love life and encourage you to do positive, relationship-building actions, while keeping an open mind to receive the courage to love and try again. The COURAGE to love, yes; the courage! It requires a great deal of courage to love and demonstrate love. There’s been a lot of definitions, descriptions and opinions on love, most of which have led people to have a very low understanding and perception of love. Without a very good understanding of what love is, we’ll continue to struggle with and in our marriages, and if care is not taken, we’ll keep losing marriages that are not really bad on their own, but are made bad as a result of the actions or inactions of the people in the marriage.
What is the significance of love in marriage? Must there be love in marriage for it to work? While many have argued that one does not really need to love for a marriage to be successful, and some opined that love alone is not enough for marriage to be successful, some others strongly believe that love is all a marriage needs to succeed. So then, what is love? And what is the role of love in marriage?
We leave you to ponder over these questions and to also email your thoughts to us on the questions. We would discuss these in the next edition and also share some of your emailed thoughts.
If you have questions that burgle your mind, do email them to us and we will do our best to deal with them one at a time. We will also share some of the emailed questions so everyone can benefit from the response to those questions. If you do not want your email to be published, please say so when you send them in, as we will pick random emails to share.
Please email your questions or responses to: email@example.com
Until next time, we challenge you to review and discuss what love means to you with your friends and loved ones.
