But the one that sticks out for most is her relationship with her husband and head pastor of JCC, Allan Kiuna. The two have been married for close to 25 years and have been blessed with a wonderful brood during that time.

The two have been very open about the struggles, trials and eventual triumphs in their marriage. In an age when many are attacking the institution of marriage, she decided to reaffirm her beliefs.

She did so on her Instagram page, writing;

Many marriages gone sour doesn’t change the fact that marriage works and that it wasn’t started by man so man cannot finish it. It’s God’s idea and plan and what He plans is intentional, meaningful and guaranteed to succeed. We are watchmen of the relationships we have. We are mandated to safeguard them and watch over them. Relationships don’t die of natural causes. They are murdered by selfishness, indiscretion, insecurity, immaturity and lack of wisdom.#marriageworks.

With the divorce rate in Kenya gradually going up as we ape western trends, many are worried that soon the nuclear family might become a thing of yore.

The benefits of marriage are plenty, both to the participants and to the children. Some of the health benefits of marriage to the participants according to www.health.harvard.edu are;

-They live longer

-They have fewer strokes and heart attacks

-They have a lower chance of becoming depressed

-They are less likely to have advanced cancer at the time of diagnosis and more likely to survive cancer for a longer period of time

-They can survive a major operation more often.
