‘Don’t shun parents in marriage!’


Maverick Radio presenter, Mr Nhyiraba Kwabena Asirife, popularly known as King One, has stated that marriages without blessings of parents, especially fathers, will turn out to be evil and have bad implications on marriage.

“It can be devastating when you think you’ve found Mr. or Ms. Right and your parents think he or she is all wrong for you. If you’re close to your parents, you want their approval when taking this big step, but you also want to remain loyal to the person you’re committing to spending the rest of your life with,” he said.


According to the host of “Tete Wo Be Ka Tete Wo be Kyere” on Rainbow Radio in Accra a lot of people these days ignore their parents due to their current state and thus present people to represent their parents because they look good.


He noted that it was wrong to marry without doing background checks of your partner before getting involved in a relationship which might even lead to marriage.


“Moreover, if you respect your parents and you believe they gave birth to you, you should value what they have to say about your romantic and marriage choices no matter their financial or physical disabilities. It’s so unfortunate a lot of people are not worried about the spiritual implications of ignoring their parents in marriage ceremonies,” he stressed.


The outspoken radio host said it was bad to rent a house for a marriage ceremony instead of using the house of ones’ parents.
