The National Council of Churches Kenya Migori officials have rejected the 'come we stay' component of the proposed Marriage Bill saying it will break families.
Led by chairman Rev John Abisai of Maranatha Faith Assemblies, vice chairman Bishop John Okinda of Pefa church and secretary Lucas Maisori of Zion Harvest Church said biblically marriage cannot be tested and vouchsafed after a period but it is permanent.
"This clause is immoral and unethical as marriage done willingly instead of being forced through the chief's office who will abuse it after a trial of six months," Abisai said.
"The clause will force marriage which will bring frustration which will end up breaking down families as people can be married without parents' consent."
The leaders unanimously agreed on the inclusion of dowry payment in marriage calling it a token of appreciation to the girl's parents.
