A marriage counselor has questioned the sustainability of marriages contracted on the basis of “love at first sight.”
Smart Takyi argues that love is not a feeling but a character.
“It is good to have feeling but what triggers it in the first place? If the character is not right then what are you falling in love with?” He was speaking on Joy FM’s Super Morning Show Friday.
According to Takyi, it takes good character to make a marriage work.
Defining love from the lenses of scripture, he said true love according to 1 Corinthians 13, is patient and kind.
That is not all.
The lead Coordinator of RAPID Ghana UK adds that love does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, and it keeps no record of wrongs.
He argues that any love that is not based on these demonstrable attributes is a fluke.
