Khaya Mthethwa On Why He Says Praying Doesn’t Stop Marriage Problems. It’s been few months since the Media Personality and Pastor Khaya Mthethwa tied the knot to former Miss South Africa Ntando Kunene but already he is giving out his views on what he thinks christians are doing wrong when it comes to marriage. Mthethwa gave his opinion saying that prior getting married one should be ready in all aspects necessary and that praying or going to church won’t solve marriage problems.
“Christians have absolutely sugar-coated marriage; I believe that we have over-spiritualized something that is very very practical that we need to be very prepared for emotionally, financially, physically…you’re living for another person and that can’t be something easy. If your fingers are still in other jams by the time you are getting married, you’re going to have a problem in marriage no matter how much you pray, no matter how much you read the word, no matter how much you go to church, you’re going to have a marriage problem. Although you might not have a God problem.”
Khaya also spoke about his life in marriage saying that it has taught him patience
“I’ve learnt that I need to be more patient, marriage drags patience out of you, I mean, something simple like when I get out the house I know that I get ready in exactly twelve minutes…with my wife Ntando, I need to set an alarm, if we leaving at six, I need to set an alarm for half past four…it’s just a patience thing, it’s just a small thing but it’s amazing…”
