Ready For Marriage

Blog Post / Monday, October 23rd, 2017

It always amazes me when I hear couples/singles say they are ready for marriage. I sometimes sit back at weddings, while holding my husband’s hand, praying and hoping that the couple who has chosen to wed will have the strength to pursue after the type of marriage that falls in line with the word of God. That, along their journey, they will discover what works for them and that they won’t fall under the pressure of what the world says they should/shouldn’t do in their marriage.

Everyone is different….. some things that you see as a necessity and/or deal breaker in your relationship may not be the same qualities that others search for in their relationship but as long as your relationship is Christ-centered you will find your footing.

In marriage you learn how to honor one another, cover each other, talk things through, forgive, sacrifice, tend to each other’s needs, uplift one another, comfort, provide, protect and build a place that is a safe haven for you and your spouse to be vulnerable…..

As a single, you may cross paths with many possible mates but learn how to recognize the right one ( If you know it’s not right stop trying to force it because your feelings can deceive you and place you in a position where you will have anger, frustration, and resentment…… All the things you didn’t want but got because of your lack of patience. You want what you want, but don’t be shocked when you get it )Try not to rush things but instead learn to wait well.

I understand this may be the last thing you’d want to hear but would you rather have a spouse that you can spend the rest of your life with in peace knowing that you’re equally committed to making it the best marriage as possible or feeling like you’ve entered into a war zone and have no way out.

DON’T DO IT!! Lol Please I beg of you lol

For your own sanity and others… WAIT!!

You don’t want to end up with less than God’s best for you.


There’s so much to learn, so take the time to prepare.

•Learn to die to yourself now

•Learn to pray for yourself & your future spouse now

•Learn how to be compassionate now

•Learn to cook, clean, take care of yourself mentally, physically & emotionally now so no one has to spend half their life trying to help something that should’ve already been worked on & addressed.

No one’s marriage is perfect, yet along this road, we face things that are hard to bear and it’s always helpful to be joined to someone who understands you at your core. I want to encourage couples/ singles to go after the best that God has for you. Choose wisely.  Understand that marriage is work & it’s better to be with someone who is willing to work just as hard as you are in your relationship….. than to be joined to someone who is dead weight (not your match)


Form good habits early on and you’ll see the benefit of it in your future marriage.

  3. Great advice!

    So many today rush into marriage for the wrong reasons and end up with their hearts broken. Marriage is not something that should be taken lightly.

    I usually tell the man not to go seeking for a wife, but rather to ask God to give him a wife. When God made the woman from the rib of the man, He did not tell the man, “I’ve created a woman for you…go find her.”

    Instead, God brought the woman to the man. If a man seeks God for a wife, God will place the woman in his life that He wants that man to marry. Be sensitive to God’s desire for your life and He will show you who He has given as a soul mate and helpmeet.

    For the women, here is my advice. Don’t chase after men, but ask God to lead you to the man He has for you as a husband. If you allow God to lead, you will find He has led you to a wonderful future.

    1. Yes & Amen!! I couldn’t have said that any better myself.

      What you said is absolutely true and God does have a wonderful future in store for us as we follow His direction.

      He truly wants the best for us. As you put it …….

      “Be sensitive to God’s desire for your life”

      What a great reminder. Thank you for your comment. Be Blessed.
