“Most people don’t prepare for marriage; they prepare for wedding which is ceremonial.

“Don’t marry because of pressure or you feel it is necessary to marry,” he urged.

Ibrahim said that marriage required understanding and endurance on the part of both partners.

He said that lack of understanding and endurance also contributed to divorce.

Ibrahim urged couples to set goals for their unions and make sacrifices for the success of their marriages.

“Couples must endure challenges to keep their marriage,’’ he added.
