What happened to my sister changed my life. Her only son died at the age of three and the doctors told her she would not have a child again. Her husband then decided to marry another woman because he wanted to have a child. (Our religion allows a man to marry four women at once.) My sister rejected this marriage simply because she did not want another woman to share her husband with her.
When I saw my sister crying, I began to ask myself why we allow a man to marry more than one woman but women in our religion do not have the same right? I went to one of my teachers with this question, but he could not answer me. I left my country (Sudan) and went to India to get my Masters Degree in Comparative Religions.
During my search about Christianity, I was attracted to the teachings of Jesus Christ. He said: “In the beginning, the Creator made them male and female. For this reason a man will leave father and mother and be united to his wife and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let no man separate.” Mathew 19:4-6 These words answered my questions about marriage. Therefore, after concentrated study, my soul was attached to Jesus and His teaching. I accepted Him as Savior and Lord over my life.
I thank the Lord for my wife and my family.
