Young learn how to love
LEARNING from other people’s experiences can improve the quality of your relationships says a couple who have found love.
Charles Mpala and Chloe Haigh-Eite ventured to Warwick on Saturday to host a seminar at the Seventh Day Adventist Church to share their experience in the hope of helping others to find and maintain a loving relationship.
“It doesn’t really matter where you meet,” Mr Mpala said. “What matters is that two people have a common denominator to base their relationship on.”
For Mr Mpala and his fiancé that common denominator is their Christian beliefs.
Mr Mpala feels that many relationships break down as a result of one or both parties not being themselves from the beginning.
“This is why people should not jump into a relationship until they know each other well.”
Miss Haigh-Eite said this is only the first hurdle.
“Even when you do know each other well it is natural to have disagreements; it’s knowing how to work through them that is the problem.
“Most young people give up way too easy at the first sign of trouble which is why we want to share our story and tell how we got through our differences.”
The couple told how during their difficulties they sought the assistance of another couple to mediate which proved to be beneficial.
A group of young singles aged from 15-22 were eager to hear the couple’s advice at the weekend.
David Hartnett, aged 21, agrees with recent Daily News’ findings that it is difficult for single people to meet in the Warwick area.
“The only opportunity to meet other singles is at youth rallies organised by the church,” Mr Harnett said.
