Marriage, my take.
These are my opinions, just my thoughts... enjoy.
It is very interesting to me and i know every one is entitled to their side of the story and stuff, but a lot of people in this generation have missed the fact and the focus of that God ordained institution, it was made for recreation and procreation with the person you deem is your best candidate for that position.
God has given us His rules of what we should look for in a candidate and He will never change them. He has also given us free will to make the final decision, so my advice to people is forget the name marriage and focus on filling the position with the right person following your interpretation of the rules given in the bible.
The rule most of us have heard is " Do not be unequally Yoked".
New International Version: Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? 2 Corinthians 6:14.
To me, what this simply means is: do not be in a relationship (any form) with someone that does not share the same view point and same ideologies with you because it would not lead to advancement on the part of the person that is perceived to be ahead. with saying that, it is very possible for couples who are non-Christians to have a GREAT and excellent marriage, and same thing with Christians also, as long as the marriage is based on what they deem right. if you find someone that shares your views, thoughts and goals, you can have an excellent marriage.
The second rule that I hold on to is: Love conquers all.
This is something, when kept behind your mind would allow you be able to over look small issues, press on and know that giving up not an option as long as you have a core and a goal. People go into marriage thinking there is always a way out, but if you think deep and follow God's recommendation that marriage has only one way out, which is death, then people will not base their marriage decision right after they have the first round of sex.
sex is a very deep thing and it clouds our judgement when it comes into play with making sound decisions, if you want to make the most appropriate decision in filling the position of your significant other, avoid sex and sexual immoralities, you would be surprised how u would base your decision on the things you deem important to you for now and the future.
Your decision period does not have to be long, (because i know body is not firewood), if you feel you have made your decision in 3 months and want to get married, pray and go for it, it is a myth that you have to wait 2 years to get married because you don't really know who you are getting married to, just always remember love conquers all.
I know of a man that proposed to his wife now, 2 months after knowing her and they have been married for over 10 years with 2 kids and they still complement and praise each other like they have been dating for 6 months. They both have the same goal in life and so far it is going great!
The devil is conquering the world with sex filled shows and adverts, don't be a statistic, overcome him.
Marriage is not for everyone, but if you think it is something for you and you would like to get into it, read ( hopefully more factual and evidence based articles than this one), ask questions from people who have been there done that and pray sincerely without bias.
May God help us all!
