Nigerian clergyman says

A Nigerian clergyman, Abel Damina, has averred that having a wedding reception is totally unnecessary and not recognized in the bible.

He said this while preaching in his church recently as he explained what constitutes a real marriage.

According to him, a couple are wedded when their parents hand them over to each other and the requirements of each party, including bride price payment, are met. He said anything other than that is frivolous and unnecessary.

Speaking further, he said couples don’t need to throw a lavish wedding party and spend over N2 million to feed hundreds of people when the money can be invested into a profitable venture.

Preaching passionately on the topic, the clergyman said;

“Wedding is just a celebration after marriage. The real marriage has happened before wedding because the real marriage is parents giving their children to one another. That is marriage. It is cultural. So all that wedding is unnecessary. It is not in the bible. No wedding in the bible. White wedding is a white man’s culture. It is not a bible thing. In the bible, marriage is parents handing over the children when the requirements of the families are met. Once that happens, marriage has happened and as a responsible Christian, you call your pastor to speak a blessing. You don’t need to feed people. You don’t need to wear gown”
