Pastor Udofia, 63, Did No Wrong By Marrying 16-Year-Old ‘Virgin’ Choir Member As 2nd Wife — Daddy Freeze




“There are 2 parts to this story,
marriage of an elderly man to a very young girl and polygamy.

Let’s start by addressing the former which is a 63 year old man marrying a young virgin.

Scripturally, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this. There is no where in the new or Old Testament, where this was even frowned at, let alone forbidden.

Isaac was circa 41, when he married Rebecca who was between 10 and 12 years old, King Xerxes was in his 40s when he married Esther at about 14 years of age, while in 1Kings chapter 1, David was close to 70 and dying, when they brought him a beautiful young virgin.

So scripturally and permit me to include, according to the African ethnical context, there is really nothing he did here that is wrong.

However, let’s apply some logic. In 20 years time, he would be 83 and she would be 38. A 38 year old woman has physical needs that an 83 year old man simply cannot fulfill and this may not end well, as a starved woman is prone to expressing anger, dissatisfaction and even, heaven forbid; cheating.

Polygamy on the other hand, although common in the Old Testament (David, Jacob, Solomon and Abraham were all polygamous), was advised against by Christ in Matthew 19:4. I chose the word ‘advised’ because it was never categorically outlawed by Christ and never considered Adultery or immorality. I personally don’t preach polygamy, as it’s difficult to fulfill Gal 5:14 (which says love your neigbor as yourself), if you are polygamous.

Nonetheless, if you inform your wife to be of your intention to be polygamous, before you marry
AND SHE AGREES, not that you bring home a new wife 10 years into the marriage and break her heart o, then who am I to judge you when the scriptures don’t?

The scriptures, although inspired by God, were rendered according to the understanding of primitive men who lived in primitive societies where woman had no rights. In 2021, where women have rights, sometimes even more so than men, managing a polygamous home would definitely be an uphill task.

So logic would suggest that you marry only one wife who is close to you in age, but if you choose to be polygamous and marry a young virgin, then enjoy!
