Do you believe in marriage?
There is a big difference between being Married and staying married. On 16th December 2016 I made a decision to start a family and walk down the aisle holding my now beautiful wife. It was a fantastic and amazing season of my life. As expected, I had to jump all the hurdles that came along with wedding preparations as well as overcome the cultural do and don’ts. What an experience!.. Getting to live with a friend as wife and do life together…Hurrah.
I remember the multitude of people who attended our wedding and how much they danced and celebrated us. I remember the beautiful words that so many spoke that day encouraging us to get used to this new life as well as start our new life with enthusiasm. With all the social support and love, once the wedding was over, it was up to my wife and I to keep the ball rolling. Friends and family will join up to invite you to the marriage life, but they wont teach you how to stay married. YOU HAVE TO FIGURE OUT.
Each one of uses a different path to get to marriage life. But, the fact and truth is, “You’re Married”. The question you should always ask is, “I’m I committed to do this?”.
Commitment is the word that most couples are struggling to understand. They tend to take it lightly or maybe not consider it important at all. You should always remember that commitment is the only way to achieve your dreams in any life decision. Couples should always remember to sign into this commitment deal as a dual but not as an individual. It is far much easier if both sign the same “commitment deal” than one trying to teach the other.
I think before we log in to marriage life, we should have a clear understanding of the life we are about to enter into and decide to fully dedicate as well decide to overcome the challenges involved. Get into marriage thinking about , how to love, trust, stay faithful as well as respect one another. There are other aspects involved but I think Trust, faithfulness, finances and love are the foundations if well taken care of, the other aspects will not shake you at all.

1 Corinthians 13:4-5 has greatly helped me.
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.”
