You Must "Eat" A Woman You Meet Before Marrying Her, The Bible Isn't Against It


Summary short_text

Speaking in an interview on the adult show 'In Bed with Adwen' on eTV Ghana, with Adwen the Love Doctor, apostle Kennedy stated that God exempted Himself from marriage the moment Adam told God that it was the woman that He gave to him who caused him to sin.
He noted that the part of the Bible that says 'He who finds a wife' means that the man is to find his own wife and not that God is to find a wife for man if sex is what a man needs to experience with his partner to be able to decide if she is really his lost rib, he is free to do because God has already exempted Himself from the act of marriage.
According to the apostle, pastors do not validate marriages, they only bless them the actual act of marriage is that which involves the meeting of the family members of both the man and the woman, and the pastor does not necessarily need to be involved.
