She explained that a dowry or formal engagement should be done before couples live together.
Pastor Faith added that if the couple wants to enjoy a successful family, then they have to marry before living together.
“Some couples have been living together for years and have even had children together without a proper marriage: no dowry has been paid, nor have they had any form of a formal engagement, this is not right. Marriage is the basis for the family; if you must enjoy a successful family, then you must first be married,” she said.
