Remember that a successful marriage depends on two things: 1. finding the right person and 2. being the right person~ unknown.
Marriage is for life and therefore people need to be ready for it when the day comes. We need to educate ourselves about what marriage truly is, what is means to us and our future spouses and count the cost as to whether we are honestly ready for it. Marriage is not about the wedding day, it’s not about sex or having beautiful children together, it’s about loving, serving, sharing, submitting and walking out the good and bad of life with the same legal partner for life. Marriage is awesome. It’s lots of fun, romance, laughs, good times, great sex etc. Marriage is also frustrating, difficult and challenging at times. Single people please talk to seasoned happily married Christian couples about marriage and find out how they have been blessed to be happy and in love after all these years.
5 Signs That Your Not Ready To Get Married
1. You like to be alone and unaccountable to anyone.
2. The thought of having to share your income and bank accounts with your future spouse makes you feel like your going to be sick.
3. You think submission is a four letter word.
4. Sex is the furthest thing from your list of needs and priorities and having to meet your future spouses sexual needs frequently sounds frustrating and ridiculous.
5. The thought of having to keep a home (cooking, cleaning, doing laundry) makes you break out in hives.
Of course this list is meant to be some what humourous BUT it’s all true. If you don’t want to cook, clean, submit, get yo sex on often, share finances or your time and space with a mate PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DON’T GET MARRIED RIGHT NOW. It’s ok to stay single, cultivate your career, seek God about your purpose, enjoy hanging with your friends, stack your money and enjoy your life. What’s not okay is having sex outside of marriage and/or dating people for many years that you have no intention of marrying and wasting their time. If your living a holy life and you’re enjoying your singlehood and don’t desire to be married there is nothing wrong with that. But if you feel that your season of dating and eventually marriage is approaching, please get an understanding about marriage and seek God BEFORE saying I DO!
