“Jesus still loves you despite your marital status” – OAP Freeze insists Divorcees deserve as much Respect as the Married Folks

Published

 on

Cool FM OAP, Daddy Freeze today spoke against the habit of maligning people who have gone through a divorce in today’s society. The broadcaster who has gone through a divorce himself stated that because a person has gotten divorced once or twice before does not mean that they don’t have the love of Jesus. He also reiterated that getting divorced is better than staying in a toxic marriage. In his words:

Marriage is wonderful but if it ends in divorce what next? – Is getting a divorce the end of the world? NO! Getting a divorce is actually miles better than staying in a bad marriage. Emotional, physical and verbal violence should not be endured just to preserve a ‘marriage’. – Although many people may disagree with my stance, let’s keep it in perspective that the divorce rate is soaring nationwide. Could this be due to the fact that many marriages are built on the wrong foundation? – Ok, you are divorced or in a divorce, or separated, what next? – Churches have teenagers fellowships, singles fellowships, married fellowships yet nothing to cater to the teeming number of separated and divorced couples across the country! – Many feel left out, God forsaken and failures, simply because they ‘failed’ at marriage. – That mindset has to change. If you are happy in your marriage congratulations, the union of marriage is a beautiful thing. On the other hand, if you are not, your life can still be beautiful, because Jesus still loves you despite your marital status! – I want to create a forum for Divorced and separated couples to help them live a happy and normal life in Jesus….. Who’s with me on this? #freethesheeple

    yeap, i agree with you, my pastor announced a program for single people and for clarity sake i asked him if a divorcee could attend, he said No. True ,the church does not condole divorce but the truth is that the number of failed marriages is on the increase . I think more churches should also concentrate on counselling couples and create forums to strengthen the marriage bond and the divorced/separated should be catered for spiritually and emotionally as well.

    For the first time I read something about divorce in Nigeria that made sense. It made me feel like somebody is paying attention, and not castigating the divorcee or calling him/her a failure. I am divorced, not in Nigeria but in USA. Here people don’t see divorce as a big deal, but I know what I went through and still go through in the hands of few members of my family and worst still my in-laws. Daddy Freeze, I do not know you but I will definitely will like to join you in raising a better awareness on this discussion to where others that are going through what we both had gone through might either look up to or read to know that failed marriage does not mean failed life. I am a Nigerian, an Ibo lady, and like I said I live in USA. Our people see divorce as a taboo. Noo!!!!!! I’d rather be divorced than be in an abusive relationship like the one that just failed. Divorce is not a tragedy, A tragedy is staying in an unhappy, abusive marriage, teaching your children the wrong things about love – Jennifer Weiner

    He’s got a valid point.
