Marriage is not as easy as many think. It requires a lot of hard work and commitment to make it work.

The General Overseer of the Redeemed

Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch

Adejare Adeboye, has established a link

between mathematics and marriage.

Adeboye, a mathematician turned pastor,

gave couples a few tips to spice up their


At the first annual lecture of the Pastor E.A.

Adeboye Professorial Chair for mathematics,

held on Thursday evening at the Main

Auditorium of the University of Lagos

(UNILAG), the cleric, who has been married

for 47-years, told the audience about four

simultaneous linear equations for successful

marital life.

According to the man of God, his

understanding of the mathematics of

marriage is what has kept his marriage


Not only did Adeboye give equations, he

supported each equation with relevant biblical


“I told my children that why I have remained

married for 47 years is because I understand

the mathematics of marriage. Mathematics is

a science of living,” he said.

Equation 1: This states that love is blind. It

was supported with a biblical passage from

Proverbs 10:12, which states that love covers

a multitude of sins.

-Equation 2: This states that “marriage is a

miracle worker with special anointing for

curing blindness.” This can be found in

Genesis 29:16-25 which gives the account of

how Jacob was so in love that he did not

know it was Leah that was given to him in

marriage, rather than Rachel, until the next


When simultaneously calculated, he said the

result shows that during courtship, love does

not make shortcomings obvious until after

marriage, when all doubts about character

are cleared.

-Equation 3: This one states that “angels

don’t eat jollof rice.” Adeboye made reference

to Judges 6:11-21 where the sacrifice Gideon

offered to the angel was consumed by fire.

He explained that women eat jollof rice so

they are not angels and are not perfect, just

like men.

-Equation 4: states that angels don’t marry.

This was supported by Matthew 22:30.

He therefore advised couples to have

reasonable expectations of their spouses and

not expect them to be like angels.

Enoch Adeboye obtained a Bachelors degree

in Mathematics from the University of Nigeria,

Nsukka, Nigeria in 1967, a Masters degree in

Hydrodynamics and a Doctorate degree in

Applied Mathematics, both from the

University of Lagos, Lagos, Nigeria in 1969

and 1975 respectively. He worked as a

lecturer in mathematics at the universities of

Lagos and Ilorin.

He gave up his lecturing job for the work of

God, after he was appointed General

Overseer of the RCCG in 1981.
