Why Mercy Aigbe’s Husband Was Remanded In Prison

Don't allow money be the basis for you to jealous another person's marriage or for you to accept a marriage proposal. People become rich and others become broke everyday. Someone who's rich today could go broke and another who was broke could become rich. Life happens.

Let sincerity be your guide, so the Lord can bless you with the right person for life.
