However, speaking at the International Youth Empowerment Summit in Accra, the CAFM Founder indicated that marriage is not for boys because boys do not marry and that he was a boy in his first marriage.
Buttressing his stance with a scripture, the man of God said: “for this reason, a man shall live his father and the mother and joined his wife”, not a boy shall leave the father and mother and join his girl, he stressed.
He was emphatic 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 the CAFM General Overseer, 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 contended that men marry for a tangible purpose but boys and most of young men of today marry because of sexual satisfaction and lust of flesh.
Archbishop Duncan–Williams noted that for one to be fully matured in marriage, it does not matter his or her success in life, level of education, gifting’s, talents, anointed, abilities and capabilities.
