Saturday, December 29, 2018 was a joyous day for the families of Comr. Egwabor Isaac Ejime of Agbor-Nta in Ika South LGA, Agbakedio Michael of Ikpide-Irri in Isoko LGA and Hon. Dcn. Moses Ovie Etume (Omokpolekpo I) of Oghara-Iyedo in Isoko North LGA, all of Delta State, as their twin children gracefully formalized their relationship in Holy Matrimony.
The twin brothers, Marvis Onyisi Egwabor and Marvin Ejime Egwabor in separate interviews said they met their spouses in Delta State University, Abraka some years ago.
Speaking about his wife, Mrs. Mercy Emamuzo Egwabor (nee Agbakedio), Mr. Marvis Onyisi said, “Her simplicity attracted me to her. She is humble submissive and caring.”
For Mr. Marvin Ejime, who spoke about his wife, Mrs. Sophia Eloho Egwabor (nee Etume), “I feel so happy marrying my heartthrob, whom I met years ago at the Delta State University, Abraka, during my SUG campaign for a senatorial position in the Faculty of Science.
“I got attracted to her because of her outstanding virtues. She is meek, very remorseful when she does something wrong and easy going. I call her Nkem, my love, my baby and more.”
Admonishing the newly wedded couples about marriage institution, Pastor Nwagu Okenwa of Living Faith Church (aka Winners Chapel), who took his reading from Gen. 2:19, 21-28, said, “Marriage is two imperfect people committing themselves to a perfect institution by taking perfect vows before a perfect God. If you can be committed to the vows you have made today, your marriage will succeed.”
He went on to explain what he termed pillars of a successful marriage. One of such pillars he said is transparency, warning against secrecy in marriage by any of the partners. “It is when people begin to do hide-and-seek in their marriage that they start building mistrust and problems,” he said.
The second pillar he said, is the pillar of Wisdom, Prov. 14:1 and Prov. 24:3-4. He admonished both couples to seek and apply wisdom in all they do if they must excel in their marriages, warning that foolishness destroys marriage and not the devil.”
At the reception held at Ogbemudein Mixed Secondary School, Agbor, there was enough for the mammoth crowd that honoured the occasion to eat and drink.
