A former Chief Executive Officer of the Volta River Authority (VRA) Dr. Charles Wereko-Brobby has waded into the age-old controversial subject ‘sex-before-marriage’, saying he has no problem with it.
In his view, the massive influx and the seeming acceptability of condoms is an indication that the world no longer frowns on sex-before-marriage.
“The pastors are doing it so? If sex before marriage is not to be encouraged, you wouldn’t have condoms and other tools for the prevention of pregnancy all over the place.
“Sex was fundamentally for procreation, but the minute you bring in condoms and other stuff, then you are saying that it’s just not for creation but for pleasure,” the outspoken engineer told Bola Ray on Starr Chat on Starr FM.
Sex-before-marriage is prohibited by the Bible and many Christian parents in Ghana insist on their wards, especially females to maintain chastity until they are legally married.
The subject, however, remains controversial in many circles with different interpretations given to it even among churches.
