He said that the increased divorce rate in Ghana recently must be blamed largely on the discontentment of couples. He argued that in times past marriages survived because couples were content with the little things they had and understood each other regardless of the circumstances.

He, therefore, called on married couples especially young people to stop comparing their marriages to others and rather appreciate what God has blessed them with to sustain their marriages.
