The General Overseer of the Action Chapel International (ACI), Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams, has revealed why his first marriage broke down.
He said he got married at age 24 adding that it was because he married as a ‘boy’ who was afraid of the temptation of falling into sin.
Rosa Whitaker got married to Duncan-Williams some nine years ago after he divorced his previous wife of 26 years, Mama Francisca.
Rosa Whitaker is described as a woman with a solid educational background. She is the president and CEO of The Whitaker Group (TWG), and is recognised as a leading expert on African trade, investment and business.
Meanwhile, Duncan-Williams speaking at the International Youth Empowerment Summit in Accra indicated that marriage is not for boys because boys do not marry and that he was a boy in his first marriage.
He said, “for this reason, a man shall live his father and the mother and joined his wife”.
He added that a mature man is a man who truly qualifies to be called a married man, insisting that a married man is a mature man and a mature man is one who is well developed mentally, economically, spiritually, physically, psychologically and emotionally strong.
According to him, a man is truly the one who understands and takes responsibilities, takes full charge and control them without any external power while a mature man is always focused and decisive.
He noted that men marry for a tangible purpose but boys and most of the young men of today marry because of sexual satisfaction and lust of the human flesh.
