A Kenyan pastor has declared his intention never to officiate a marriage ceremony which the groom is yet to see the bride’s face without makeups on.
According to Pastor Godfrey Migwi, it is appropriate for the groom to see the bride’s face without makeups some weeks to their marriage in order to have a clear view of who he is getting married to.
He added that the high rate of divorce is sometimes influenced by the discovery of men later after tying the nuptial that there got married to a woman with a caricature face who hid behind the application of cosmetic to look pomp and glamorous.
In a Facebook post, Pastor Godfrey Migwi called for institutionalization of this convention in all churches to ensure trust and honesty between would-be couples with an ultimate aim of building the confidence of women who only think they have to apply makeups on their faces in order to appear confident and noticeable.
“I decree and declares as a called and ordained minister of the gospel by God’s grace of this generation and as a licensed pastor in this nation through our constitution, that I will never officiate any wedding in the church if the man have not get the privilege to see the bride face to face without makeups at least three weeks in their courtship. And I urge other church ministers to follow suit ,this is one of the most part of the reasons people divorce akioga unaona mtu mwingine mwenye hawafanani na yule wako ulioa unakua confused,” he wrote.
