So heart breaking. A couple that was scheduled and fully prepared to wed on Saturday,
8 June received a notice just a day before their wedding that their wedding had been cancelled. Reason been that
they ate on the same plate a week ago.
A Twitter user narrated the story. He wrote
“I don’t criticize pastors or churches, but this is overwhelming and annoying.
So after all the preparation for wedding, the State Overseer of Bayelsa state called the chairman marriage
committee of the church to suspend the wedding.
The message sent was “YOUR WEDDING IS SUSPENDED. TWO OF YOU ARE PLACED ON DISCIPLINE.” This was sent on Friday
during the traditional marriage.
Please who does this? After all the preparation for wedding.
So the family of the bride drove to the State Overseer house to beg him to allow the wedding hold. The mother
of the bride was rolling on the floor crying & begging the pastor. But the man refused to answer and walked out
on them. Even Jesus Christ never did like that to sinners.
So after crying, they went back home and the bride almost ran mad. And this is another reason that can lead to
depression & I can provide @MentallyAwareNG contact to one of the family members to help connect the bride to a
The wife and husband said the chairman of the marriage stated that the reason why Bayelsa State Overseer suspended
the wedding was because the couples to be ate in same plate a week ago. Which the State Overseer said it’s wrong &
should never happen until after wedding day”.
Wonders shall never end.
