Facebook Marriages Don’t Last, Pa. Adeboye Counsels Singles

The General Superintendent of the Redeemed Christen Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye last Sunday advised Christian singles to desist from choosing life partners from the social media, adding that marriage contracted through such medium does not last.

Facebook Marriages Don’t Last, Pa. Adeboye Counsels Singles


Giving the advice during a special prayer/thanksgiving service for matured youths, singles, single parents and their family members at the RCCG National Headquarters, Throne of Grace Parish in Ebute-Meta, Lagos, Pastor Adeboye pointed out that choosing partners through social media platform often results in unstable marriages.

“If you are expecting a marriage that will last, let it be one that is arranged by God. Let me tell you clearly if you get a wife through FaceBook, you will lose her through the YouTube. You can quote me. Any marriage that is conducted through the FaceBook is going to crash through the YouTube. No doubt about that.

‘Our forefathers have already said it and the translation is what I have already given you. In Yoruba, they said: Iyawo taba fi ijo fe, iran loma wo lo.
Let God decide for you because when the Almighty God decides to give you your own partner, any obstruction in your way, He will destroy. He is the Lord of hosts. He has never lost a battle”.

In a sermon titled: “Joy Cometh”, the revered man of God urged singles to wait patiently on the Lord for His guidance and they must not be carried away by beauty as the yardstick for their choose of a life partner.

According to him, they must get involved in the work of God, noting that true joy and peaceful home can only come from God.

Continuing he goes on to say more about relationships and the importance of being born again, stressing: “It is God Himself that says that it is not good for man to be alone and then He said I will make a help meet for him. He also said be fruitful and multiply and I cannot be fruitful and multiply if I am single and because I am a child of God, I cannot go and fornicate, sleeping around hence who made the commandment made an arrangement and the arrangement is going to be a wedding.


Joy can be asked for and it is also a gift from God, He gives joy, wisdom, and knowledge to those who are good in His sight. Joy is also one of the rewards of salvation”

“Through joy comes from God, the devil can never give you joy, he may give you counterfeit. If you are expecting true joy, let it comes from the Lord. If you are expecting marriage that will last, let it be the one that will be arranged by God”.

    As wonderful as the saying is, I don't think it's totally true, because the statement to me appears to be contradictory.

    The first Line Contradicts every other thing there.

    It is God that arranges a marriage that will last, whether from facebook or YouTube or instagram or any social media, If God is in it, I don't believe it will crash.

    God has many methods he uses when dealing with his children, the method for child A might be different from the method for Child B, so limiting the power of God in our lives is not in anyway morality.

    So does it mean that if you meet your partner in the car, probably you will lose her in the train or plane as the case maybe, no no no no no, that's not how it works.


    For me, the reason why we have many broken homes is because men(men and women) have not come to know God . God is love, So you can not love your partner when you don't love God, and when you don't love God, the love of God will not be shed abroad in your heart by the Holy Spirit, according to Romans 5:5.
