Marriage is a life-time journey that is faced with both good and bad times. Sometimes, the good times may be fewer than the bad times, especially if the ingredients that help to spice up the marriage are lacking.
A lot of women, out of love for their men and peer pressure or family pressure, have ended up indirectly or directly proposing marriage to their men. Some actually succeeded in their quest for marriage while some were not successful. Most who succeeded didn’t take long to discover that the men they loved and forced to marry were still boys who just started exploring their sexual prowess. Marriage is for MEN, not BOYS.
Marriage is a mutual agreement that is bound by mutual feelings. There are some factors to consider other than love. Love is just the start or beginning, but the main things that help to thrive through marriage is embedded in CHARACTER.
Marriage as an institution, unlike other institutions of learning, provides you with a certificate before you start. Which means you are suppose to acquire some level of knowledge and experience which form your character before you enter into marriage institutions. Whilst you aspire and long for marriage, first ask yourself if you are ready for it. Also ask yourself if your partner is ready for it. These questions need to be genuinely answered putting into consideration the following 7 factors:
Economic balance, spiritual balance, social balance, psychological balance, mental balance, moral balance and emotional balance
You have to judge yourself and your partner by these 7 keys that help someone to have a good marriage life.
The seven factors are expected to be on the average that is why they are referred to as a balance. You don’t need to be so perfect before you get into marriage but you need to be on the average of the seven factors that determines if you are right and ready for marriage.
In my next post, I will take some time out to give you more explanation on the seven keys to certifying a man or a woman for marriage.
