Marriage is taken as a sacred institution where there is fusion of two imperfect people come together to be joined as one. This act of marriage changes the personal and social status of the individuals who enter into it. Its values, beliefs were held on to and strictly abided to in order to avoid consequences that were stipulated by the community elders. Cases of divorce, infidelity, marital conflicts were minimal and minor. These are problems that were solved by the parties involved and the elders. In today's marriage, most young people are confused about marriage: its value, role and meaning. Question of whether marriage is still a good idea, more so in today's more 'enlightened' and 'liberated' culture remains unclear to most young people. Concepts such as honor, trust, faithfulness, commitment seem to be challenges that face most marriages today. This problem is further being instigated by the everyday books, magazines, newspapers, soap operas and movies that bombard us with images of cheating spouses.
