Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams

Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams has urged married women not to “misbehave” in their marriages, because, according to him “marriage is a privilege”.

Delivering a sermon at Christian Action Faith Church Sunday (26, October 2014), Archbishop Duncan-Williams urged married women to hold on to their marriages and not do anything to jeorpadise their relationship with their husbands because not woman is privileged to married.

He added that for every seven women, there is only one man available to them to marry.

Archbishop Duncan-Williams said : “It’s a privilege to be married. It’s a privilege in the time we live in when it’s seven [women] to one man.

“Sister when you get married, be thankful and stop misbehaving because it’s seven to one. It doesn’t matter how pretty and beautiful and intelligent you are; until a man proposes to you, you are going to stay beautiful, pretty, intelligent, nice and whatever, and rotten.

“That’s what it is, and somebody needs to tell you because there [are] so many women out there misbehaving. You got to be told the truth. And the reason why a lot of marriages are not working is because everybody is afraid to offend women to tell them: ‘Come on girl, you got a good thing going, hold fast onto it, don’t misbehave and don’t lose it’.

“And somebody says: ‘How about the men?’ They got issues too but you see, the fact of the matter is that a man can be 100 years old and marry again if he ‘moves’. A man can be 100 years and marry if he can ‘drive’. But a woman just can’t get married at a particular age. [It] gets to a place [where] everything begins to melt and you can’t marry just because you want to marry..

“It is what it is, and sometimes we don’t want to hear the truth. We get offended when the truth is said, but I have come to a place [where] I tell people that I have lost my reputation a long time ago, and so it doesn’t really matter whether you like me or you don’t like me, and I don’t preach to impress people anymore. I stopped doing that a long time ago. I deliver what I’m told to deliver, and whether you receive it or not is none of my business; it’s your business.”
