Ten Wrong Reasons For Getting Married

  • By Pastor Sophia
     
    It is amazing the many unrealistic, funny, illogical reasons people often get married.
     
    A lot of people don't have the slightest idea what marriage entails. People get married when they are not fully prepared for it.
     
    Here are ten wrong reasons for getting married.
     
    1. Don't marry out of pity
     
    This is a wrong reason to want to get married to someone. Marriage is a covenant journey, that requires mutual agreement, commitment and willingness of both parties involved. Marriage should never be out of pity. You don't marry because you want to help or solve someone's problems.
     
    2. Don't marry because you don't have any other option
     
    Some ladies feel helpless and feel they don't have any other option than to marry a particular person. Nothing can be far from the truth than this. Yes, you have many other options. Allow God to lead you, He won't lead you wrong.
     
    3. Don't marry because you don't want to break his/her heart Click To Tweet
     
    It is better there is a broken heart that can be healed than for there to be a broken, unfulfilled life and an unaccomplished destiny.
     
    4. Don't marry just because God said
     
    You need to hear God as well. God is the ultimate authority, but you have to also be in agreement with God's decision. You have to love the person with your whole heart in addition to God leading you and telling you the right person to marry.
     
    5. Don't marry because a pastor or parent said
     
    Yes, pastors and parents can advise and give a go ahead. But you also have to be convinced by yourself.
     
    Your parent or pastor will not live in the marriage with you.
    Marry because peace, purpose, attraction and compatibility also said. Hear God yourself.
     
    6. Don't marry if you cannot submit
     
    Wives are called to ultimately submit to their own husbands. However, submission in marriage is also mutual. Never marry someone you are not ready or willing to submit to.
     
    7. Don't marry if you are not ready to love as Christ love the church
     
    Christ is the perfect example of love. The God kind of love that is without selfish motive. If you cannot love sacrificially, don't marry that person.
     
    8. Don't marry because you are from the same tribe or have things in common
     
    You are not marrying because of your tribe or home town. You are marrying that person because you want to fulfill purpose and destiny together.
     
    9. Don't marry because people advised or counsel you to do so
     
    People's advice and counsel can very well be wrong and misleading.
     
    God will not ask the people, He will ask you. Be answerable for your own destiny. Don't marry solely out of people's advice.
     
    10. Don't marry because of the present alone
     
    Don't marry a person because of his/her present situation alone. Click To Tweet
     
    Have deep consideration for his/her future too. Is he rich now but on his way to being poor because he lacks the power to sustain and multiply wealth? That is one of the pertinent questions to ask.
