Beautiful Nollywood twin sisters, Chidinma and Chidiebere Aneke aka the Aneke Twins recently opened up on why marriage is scary to them.
During an interview with Sun News, they said that a failed courtship is better than a failed marriage in their eyes. Chidiebere started: "Marriage is sacred! It is better for me to break courtship than marriage. Our mother didn’t divorce her husband until we lost our father. So, we want to emulate her good virtues of living a peaceful and lovable life with our husbands."
"Honestly, we need to understand the purpose of marriage which includes love, friendship, patience, trust and tolerance. Some marriages break because the couples don’t see their partners as friends and soul mates."
"Couples should treat their spouses like their fresh and blood. Sincerely, if you truly love someone you would hardly hurt that fellow. But our society of today celebrates divorce more than marriage. It’s not about wealth or look, but it takes a lot of commitment to stay married."
Chidinma added: "Our Bible makes us to understand that before we were formed in our mother’s womb, God has sanctified and ordained us prophets. So, the day I will get married is ordained by God. If I’m not married now, it doesn’t mean I wouldn’t get married."
"Besides, the Bible also says ‘he that finds a wife, finds a good thing and obtains favour from God. So, my man will find me at the right time. Suitors come but after praying and God showed us a sign, we wouldn’t go before of our God to avoid future regrets."

"Some marriages have broken up because the women hope to change a man who has not grown from a boy. How can that be possible? So, it is advisable to marry your friend, not a stranger. We desire to marry the men after our hearts. A man who is God-fearing, hardworking and kind."
