Leaders at the Bible Society of Uganda are attributing the continued marriage breakups to poor attendance of premarital counseling sessions.

Canon Rebecca Margaret Nyegenye, the Vice President of the Bible Society of Uganda says many Christians have failed to fully attend these marital counseling sessions, ending up losing information that strengthens their marriages.

She said this as the Bible Society of Uganda was announcing the Kampala Marriage Conference 2024 that is set to be held at the Hotel Africana next Friday on May 24.

The Conference is expected to be opened by His Grace Paul Ssemogerere, the Archbishop of Kampala and be closed by the Rt. Rev. Dr. Alfred Olwa, the Bishop of Lango Diocese under the Church of Uganda.

Justice Mike Chibita, the President of the Bible Society of Uganda says that Christian marriage is not always well understood and practiced which this conference intends to provide the opportunity to mobilize the churches to advocate Christian marriage across Uganda.

Paul Bosson, the Chairman Organizing Committee for the Marriage Conference noted that the event will be held under the theme “Equipped for Christian Marriage” and will enable participants to faithfully model Christian marriage in their lives and empower the public to have such marriage become the bedrock of Uganda society.

A unique feature of the Marriage Conference is the bringing together of church leaders from all the major Christian denominations in Uganda.

In the afternoon session, there will be a panel session comprising senior church leaders from six denominations who will answer questions from participants on all aspects of Christina marriage.
