M-Link Consult organizes inaugural Singles Summit

Marriage Link Consult (M-Link Consult), a company launched last year to help people find marriage partners through a combination of technology and direct human interaction, held its inaugural Singles Summit last Saturday in Accra. 


The event was part of the company's planned activities for 2023, which also include group wedding packages. 

The summit aimed to introduce M-LINK Consult's products and services, as well as offer counselling to people in relationships. 

The company's directors emphasized their commitment to making marriages and associated wedding ceremonies less expensive, citing the high cost as a major barrier to marriage. 

The upcoming marriage fair and weekend of marriages in Accra are part of M-Link Consult's efforts to promote affordable and accessible marriages. 

A Director of M-LINK Consult, Mr. Dickson Antwi assured that his outfit had come to make marriage and associated wedding ceremonies less expensive.

"Clearly what we have seen is that many are not able to go ahead with their marriages these days because of budget. It's so expensive. So for people who want to cut down on budget, this is the time for them. People should look forward to this kind of marriage. You are going to pay  just a fraction of the cost of solo weddings, and yet enjoy the full benefits of a legal, colorful and decent wedding.," Mr. Dickson Anwti indicated.

Legal and counselling experts advised that couples should take the legalities of marriage seriously and show commitment to save their relationships or marriages. 

Ms. Annie Emefa Fiawoo, who is a private legal practitioner and Managing Partner at Anniemef Law Group, and also works with M-LINK Consult, recommended that couples should decide on the type of marriage they want before making a final decision to marry. She emphasized the importance of taking the legalities of marriage seriously and ensuring that the correct procedures are followed.

According to her, couples should be aware of the different types of marriages that are recognized by the laws of Ghana, which include customary marriage, the marriage of the Mohammedans, and other monogamous marriages. For those who plan to enter into Christian and monogamous marriages, she also advised that they ensure that the person officiating the ceremony is gazetted to do so and that the place of worship where the ceremony is taking place is licensed.

"Speaking to journalists on the sidelines of Singles Summit, Counsellor Perfect Kumah Oduro, Counseling Psychologist, and the lead counsellor at M-Link Consult stressed the need for partners to show commitment to save their relationships or marriages.

She argued that being a Christian or a Muslim alone is not enough to guarantee the success of a marriage.

According to her, commitment is the key ingredient for partners to stay together through thick and thin.

"Marriage is about principle so it's not about whether you are a Christian or a Muslim or whatever, if you follow the principles you will have a successful marriage. So being a Christian will not guarantee a successful marriage..

"What you need is not love. What you need is not the religious commitment but what you need in marriage to make it successful is a commitment because commitment is knowing that your partner is not perfect, knowing that things are not well but you need to stay in and do your part to make it work. The commitment is going to be there when love is not there. So commitment is very successful to any relationship," Counsellor Perfect Kumah Oduro shared."

The fair, set for August or September 2023, will feature exhibitions on marriages, and the first Accra marriage weekend will be held in November and December. The aim of these events is to encourage and promote strong family ties.
