A Ghanaian Women's Perspective: “How can a family stay together?”

It is good for a man and a woman to get married and have children because a man cannot stay alone, and neither can a woman. Marriage is a living creature, something we consider natural. It is in our Holy Bible that, “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created male and female” (Genesis 1:27). And also in verse 28 it says, “God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth.” A woman alone cannot have a baby; neither can a man, but the two of them can together have a baby. So it is the responsibility of both of them to look after the children. Both of them should sit and plan out the upbringing of the children. They are the gift of God to them. They have to make sure they do not do anything on their own; instead, they should plan everything together. Both of them should decide everything by the sharing of ideas. This is important in every marriage to help the family stay together. Also keep in mind that the man is the head of every family. If the man and the woman do not agree on anything, and they do not sit down to discuss anything concerning the marriage together, separation will come. This will break down the marriage, and the family will never stay together.
