Many Pentecostal and Catholic churches have long stopped marrying brides who are visibly pregnant; though some churches don't have anything against it and still marry pregnant brides.
Now I hear after much deliberation, soon no church in Nigeria will be allowed to marry any woman who is obviously pregnant. The woman will have to give birth first before any church is allowed to wed her. But thankfully for some brides, there are other options - court, traditional, garden weddings etc.
But what do you think of this? Are churches right in refusing to marry pregnant brides, and why do you think they care whether a bride is pregnant or not?
