The Right Reverend Dr Festus Yeboah-Asuamah, Anglican Bishop of Sunyani, has advised Christian women to satisfy their husbands sexually to sustain marital happiness and comfort.
He expressed concern that some women had engaged themselves with religious activities to the extent that they do not even have time to satisfied their husbands sexually.
This habit, the Bishop said, was a contributory factor to sexual promiscuity by men, which had teared homes and families apart.
Rt Rev Dr Asuamah-Yeboah gave the advice when he addressed the first diocesan Mother Union Conference of the Sunyani Anglican Diocese in Sunyani.
Under the theme: “Women, You Are The Pillars of the Family and the Church,” the conference was attended by members from Nkoranza, Atebubu/Amantin, Kintampo Berekum and Dormaa-Ahenkro.
Rt Rev Dr Asuamah-Yeboah emphasised that Christianity is a way of life and that women who fail to perform their sexual responsibilities sin against God and their husbands.
“This does not mean men should also over-stretch their wives in sex.” he quickly added.
The Anglican Bishop observed that maintaining a peaceful family was the responsibility of both spouses, and appealed to women not to shoulder such obligation on husbands only.
Rt Rev Dr Asuamah-Yeboah noted that as poverty was a root cause of family disorderliness, women ought to engage in useful economic activities to support the financial needs of the family.
Mrs Felicia Yeboah-Asuamah, Diocesan President of the Union, emphasised that the proper upbringing and development of children was a shared and collective responsibility of parents.
She said children can grow and become useful adults in society depending on the kind of moral, spiritual and educational training they will acquire.
Mrs Yeboah-Asuamah advised women who abuse their husbands in public to refrain from such behaviour, but ensure that they exercise self control and be slow in anger.
This, she observed, would sustain the interest of their husbands to remain at home and support them in household chores.
