How I Lost My Marriage - Robert Burale Opens Up
It's the little things that cost my marriage
Burale who still insists he married a great woman, revealed that if he listened to his wife more, spent more time with her and communicated to her in a better way, their marriage would have worked out.
They met at a Gospel concert and after five months the two got married and in a year, their marriage was already on the rocks. This was despite concern that they were rushing things.
“We courted for five months and then got married in the same year. Everybody said we were rushing it but we were in love, in hindsight, we should have listened. We dated, courted, paid dowry and got married all within five months. Her parents were okay,” said Burale as he spoke to Kuria Wanjiru of Standard Digital Entertainment.
“Sometimes you can be in the same room as someone else but you are not really spending time together,” he said.
He also disclosed that there was no infidelity involved in his marriage but that he failed to cultivate their friendship, which is what holds a marriage.
"Nobody gets into marriage wanting it to fail. Mine failed after one year, two days! It was painful and depressing. I tried to hide it for a while. For four months, I was still putting on my ring. It was hard to pretend because I was a preacher,” said Burale.
