This topic I'm writing deals with picking the right partner for marriage. I believe the decision you make as to who you will marry is the second most important decision you will ever make. The first decision is the choice about your relationship with God. There is no more important decision than that because that decision will affect eternity. Who you marry will also greatly affect your sense of fulfillment and future. That’s why you don’t want to make a mistake in picking the right woman.
50% of all marriages end in divorce. No one marries to get divorced. They don’t say, “Well I’d like to go through the awful experience of getting divorced so I think I’ll get married” lol. Everyone thinks they have found the right one when they marry. Of course, there are a lot of reasons for divorce. One big one is you have married the wrong person, or you are the wrong person for the one you have married.
Every successful relationship has to have a strong foundation of commitment. In marriage, feelings come and feelings go, but loving someone by an act of your will can save your marriage. It’s so great when a guy knows his wife is committed to him & him to her. Yeah, every successful relationship has to have a strong foundation of commitment. Unconditional love says, “I accept you the way you are even though there are areas in your life you need to change & we'll change them together.”
Your wife should be the kind of woman who will encourage you to be all you can be. She should make you feel good about yourself & make you want to become a better person because of her. A wife who does her best to give unconditional love and respect will probably help him show her who he really is.
Marriage will bring out the good and bad side of you. You need the kind of woman who will not be a doormat, but will love you the way a husband needs to be loved (This is also true for a husband). You both will need God’s love in order to love each other.
In the end, there are very few things in life that are truly important. Those things most often have to do with relationships. That’s why most guys at one time or another dream of having a loving and respectful wife and children he can love and nurture. But raising children is a huge challenge. It is worth the work, but it is a lot of work. When a wife teams up with her husband to help raise their children in a positive and loving way, a healthy, happy family can come about.. I have observed there is something about a woman that allows her to be gifted in nurturing her children. This gift of love and patience has nothing to do with whether she is sexy or hot. It’s whether she has the character to team up with her husband and make a difference in their children’s lives.
It’s true. A good woman is hard to find. There are plenty of pretenders, but few who are the real thing. That’s why every guy should slow down, get good advice, and ask for God’s help before getting married. I want to end this blog where I began: Who you marry is the second most important decision you will ever make. Make that decision very wisely. A good woman is hard to find, and worth far more than diamonds.
