3 Nigerian Pastors Who Have Been Married To Their Wives For More Than 30 Years

In the book of Malachi 2:14, Marriage was described as a holy covenant between a man and a woman. The covenant demonstrates that both husband and wife see marriage as more than just a physical and emotional union, but also as a moral and legal commitment. It is something that is expected to be forever till death put asunder.
