If I may ask, why Pregnancy Test why not Virginity Test ? What about the Men how do you test them if they are virgins ?

I attend the "Largest Church in Nigeria "  here in lagos. I was surprised when I heard on friday that my uncle's wedding
has been canceled and has been moved to another church to take place.


It was reported that a pregnancy test was run and that they figured out his wife to be was already 1 month pregnant which
was the main reason for the cancelation of the wedding to take place in the church.


Now thinking about the whole thing, I would say this is totally wrong, because if indeed this issue has to be judged biblically, I would say it is only written in the bible that one must not have intimacy until you are married which automatically means both parties must still be virgins.


So if thats the case, the general test that needs to be run is virginity test, not pregnancy test, because alot of people have gotten married with their virginity lost prior wedding day. I just dont understand what this is all about. I feel the church didnt do well on this, please someone shed a light on this issue and lets see if they did they right thing or not because "What is good for Adam is what Eve got too !"

Poster, the church did the right thing for one reason, i.e. setting an example for all. You may be right that many might have had intercourse the previous night and gone on to the altar to be married. Truly they're not any better than your uncle's case and the only reason such marriages go ahead is that the pastor and all others trust that all is well. As you may be aware, humans have not been given the ability to know everything about everybody (i.e. omni-conscience) - which attribute belongs to God and God alone.

You may get some comfort from this: any couple intending to marry that purports to their pastor that they've not had intercourse before marriage when in fact they have will be marrying in church by false pretences (which is sin); and God will not be part of it - any blessings recited will simply be empty pronounciations. And going to another church is no solution at all!!

So if was me in that situation, I'd come out clean and repent so that when we I do get married in church, God will be in it.

So cheer up, God cannot be deceived!

DP u disappoint me now! To please u, pipo can marry any way they choose - eloping, co-habiting, traditionally. It'll qualify to be marriage. BUT what the poster is talking about is a CHURCH BLESSED MARRIAGE!

I am a christian..........but let us face reality..........how many couples stay without sampling b4 marriage?..........tell me............To me, what I consider as marriage is consent by both parties, parents consent and blessing and exchange of gift......that is what marriage is............and am sure that couple has done that............no one would tell me that God doesnt recognise what we call traditional marriage........the white wedding is oyinbo own type of marriage and if I decide to do oyinbo marriage just to fulfill all righteousness, you will cancel it just becos am pregnant?.............

Indeed!

Without my parents blessing, there is no marriage........Rebbecca in the Bible got her parents blessing and marriage don start be that...God honours the words from parents to children.........Traditional marriage is the koko, white is an addition.......eloping and co-habiting is no marriage..........but if a gal's bride price has been paid, she is married.........

Like I was thought, in those days in my tribe, if a man doesnt want to marry again, he asks for the bride price to be return and the calabash of wine broken......thats the end of that marriage........
