A lot of persons are in a hurry to get married without really knowing what's Involved. Some feel that "marriage" is "wedding" so they go all out trying to make their weddings the talk of the town.
A wedding is a ceremony where two or more people are united in marriage while the legally or formally recognized union of two people as partners in a personal relationship (historically and in some jurisdictions specifically a union between a man and a woman).
However, they seem not to remember many marriages that ended in divorce. If not, they would have gone in search of ways to build a perfect home after the wedding ceremony. I think we should leave the wedding thing (a ceremony) and focus on marriage (a lifetime union of the spouses and all that's Involved).
A lot of people go into marriage without having proper knowledge of what marriage really entails, knowing that marriage isn't the same as dating or every other forms of relationship should be the first basic thing to figure out. The responsibility and challenges of being tied to your spouse after wedding is very crucial and should be considered a high priority. Marriage isn't meant for the weak at hearts but mature individuals.
Here are two questions every marriage aspirants should ask themselves.
> Do I really want to GET married? (Why?)
> Do I want to STAY married? (Why?)
If your answer makes good sense, then you go for it. Otherwise, it's better you stay single. MARRIAGE IS NOT JUST AN INSTITUTION BUT A WORLD OF ITS OWN.
Spouses don't longer understand marriage concept as they all see marriage as platform where they stand to gain in return. They no longer endure the patience, the difficult and challenging time. They see it as competition with others. I think we all need to be sat down and be lectured on the biblical meaning of marriage
