If marriage was the best thing that can ever happen to anyone, why are there still very rich young ladies and guys out there? With this we would be right to say that marriage is not all but just a spiritual, social and moral obligation.
I mustn’t be misquoted, I didn’t say marriage is not right but not all marriages are supposed to be because they aren’t working. The big question would be that, if your father were your husband would he have been the best for you? And if you mother were your wife would she have been the woman of your dream?
Looking at the rate of divorce in our society, I bet the answers to these questions would be capital NO’S. We cannot deny the fact that marriage cannot always be rosy. Another question to this fact would be that, why would you enter into a relation you would always look back and wish you hadn’t entered into?
Gone are does days they force people to marry out of parental familiarities, now we are allowed to marry anybody we feeling we can spend the rest of our life with. Why then do people still fall into the wrong hands? Some claim they fall out of love as soon they got married, if this was your case, then you were never in love, you were carried away by either her beauty or his handsome physic or better still the wealth.
In Africa, the major reason for marriage is procreation, but citing from the scriptures, procreation isn’t the major reason for marriage but for companionship. Search deep down your marriage or you parent’s marriage why exactly are you married or your parents married?
Point to note, never rush into marriage because you’re definitely going to rush out, take your time,
Know him/her well, know his family, because you aren’t marrying just him/her. And be certain you can spend the rest of your life with him/her.
