A Methodist Cleric, Ver Rev Osondu Ekweremadu, has urged husbands to always spend time with their wives to spice up their marriages.

Ekweremadu made the call on Sunday in Enugu during a sermon to mark the Father’s Day at the Central Methodist church, Uwani, Enugu.

Speaking on the topic, “There’s Work”, Ekweremadu noted that many men no longer give attention to their wives and children but in the pursuit of economic gains.

“Once in a while, take your wives to vacations and functions to know how they feel and make them feel loved.

“Some wives are dying in silence for lack of spousal love. Show them love and sometimes cook for the family; it excites the children,” he said.

Ekweremadu expressed dismay that some fathers had left their responsibilities to their wives, adding that it was unhealthy for the family.

The clergy told men that there was work to do in the family and reminded them to always focus on God.

In a message to fathers, the Enugu Methodist Archbishop, Most Rev Christopher Edeh, urged fathers to always pray for their families, the church and the nation.

Edeh also urged them to make impact in and around the environment for peace and unity of the country. (NAN)
