Kemi Olunloyo and the Burden of Responsibility

Kemi Olunloyo and the Burden of Responsibility

Before you go further in reading this article, let me clearly state that there’s a chance the title would turn out to be inappropriate.

The combatants could not agree on whether marriage is merely physical (Side 1) or both physical and spiritual (Side 2). After observing the discussion for a while, I decided to contribute to the discussion. This is my viewpoint.
