Renowned gospel singer and media personality Joyce Omondi, who is married to Waihiga Mwaura, recently shared heartfelt words of encouragement about marriage on Citizen TV’s Rauka show.
During the live show on October 8, she urged Nairobi women not to be apprehensive about the institution of marriage.
“Marriage is a blessing that people should not be afraid of. Out here, some individuals speak negatively about marriage and the commitment it entails. They express reluctance, preferring to stay single, claiming to be ‘miss independent,’” remarked Joyce Omondi.
Anastacia Mukabwa, now known as Anastacia Kakii after her marriage in December 2022, echoed Joyce’s sentiment, emphasizing that “two is better than one.”
She highlighted that marriage is more than just a physical union; it’s a partnership ordained by God.
Kakii stressed the importance of thoroughly knowing one’s partner before taking the plunge.
Addressing any red flags or unresolved issues before marriage is crucial, she advised.
Kakii emphasized the role of personal responsibility in the success of a marriage and discouraged blaming God for individual choices.
She urged couples to address problems and not compromise on unresolved issues, which could lead to turmoil in the marriage.
Joyce Omondi and Waihiga Mwaura exchanged vows in a beautiful ceremony at Sawela Lodge in Naivasha on December 18, 2015.
In an interview with YouTuber Nicholas Kioko, Joyce emphasized the special nature of her union with Waihiga, stating, “It’s not a secret that I’m married, but I keep things private because I only made my vows to Waihiga.”
She further explained, “For me, my marriage to him is something very special, a covenant that I have with him and God. I want to treasure it, and I did not make my vows to everyone. It’s something that I guard and cherish.”
When asked about the secret to her successful marriage, Joyce openly credited God as the foundation that keeps her union with her husband strong.
“Put God at the center of everything. That’s my most significant piece of advice. I don’t know how people manage without God. For me, it was the best thing ever. Marriage requires effort, but with God, it works,” she affirmed.
