CONTEMPORARY VIEW ABOUT MARRIAGE AND ADULTERY IN SELECTED CHURCHES

CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 Background to the study

For a holistic development and progressive society, there is the need for sound morality. Virtually all cultures of the world believe that religion has a lot to give in regulating the conduct of society. It is generally believed that, where sound morality is lacking, there will surely be chaos and lawlessness. Paul says “Where there is no law, there is no transgression” (Romans 4: 15; 5:13). There are laws, regulations and norms guiding the behaviour of every citizen in every locality and at any given time. In every society, the norm is that individuals should do what is right always, although what is morally right in one society may be morally wrong in another society. However, in spite of the differences that may be found from one society to another, “there is also a high degree of continuity in humanity independent of time, culture, and circumstances, especially when it comes to moral issues.”1 Moral values are definitely declining in today‟s society. “It can be argued that, perhaps the major factor for the increase in divorce cases in the twentieth century has been the increasing social acceptance of divorce. This increased tolerance has resulted from relaxation of negative attitudes toward divorce among various religious denominations.” 2 Nigeria, though secular by constitution, is deeply religious. The law of the land says that every citizen has the right to practise his or her religion. The three major religions: Christianity, Islam and African Traditional Religions, profess to have one thing or the other to contribute to sound morality in Nigeria. Yet Nigeria is a society where such things as violence, rape, drug abuse, gay marriage, pornography and abortion appeal to some people. Commitment to marriage and family, the sanctity of human life, integrity and honesty, personally and corporately, have been compromised and devalued. One way to have a sanitized society is to have good homes. The home, to a large extent, influences how one makes life decisions. It affects one‟s attitude and self-esteem, and aids in the pursuit of a meaningful life. “Each healthy home is a macrocosm of the entire universe, helping to make the entire world a home for God. Harmony within a family often translates into harmony among families, communities and nations. When there is no harmony among people who are related by blood, how can we expect to create harmony among strangers?”

Statement of the problem

Marriage is recognised in many places as the union of male and female in order that there might be continuity in human society. The former American President George W. Bush, while defending traditional marriage on February 24, 2004 says, “the union of a man and woman is the most enduring human institution, honoured and encouraged in all cultures and by every religious faith.”In recent times, there is an evolving paradigm and these traditional definitions of marriage may not be relevant. Marriage is difficult to define because the meaning of marriage differs for different people, times, and culture.
