Vowing ‘For Better or for Worse’ Before Your Marriage is a ‘Curse’ — Claims Nigerian Pastor Bishop Oyedepo

1 min

One of the most well-known traditions of a white wedding ceremony are the recitation of the vows. Everyone and their mother can recite at least the part that says ‘for better for worse, in sickness and in health and till death do us part’.

These vows are as much a part of every wedding I’ve attended as the wedding cake, and yet Nigerian pastor Bishop Oyedepo claims they’re not actually a blessing but a curse for every marriage.

Speaking with congregants during a church event, the founder and leader of the Winners Chapel said those vows are actually curses people place on their marriages because they are unbiblical.

“All that ‘for better for worse, in sickness and in health’ that people recite as marriage vows, is unscriptural! It is a curse!” Oyedepo said.
