I did see a movie where a partner told the other thus:
“People who get married are not to be trusted, because if you are legitimately happy you have no need to make big show outta it in the heck of marriage. They do it because they are insecure”.
Now permit me to disagree “heads down”.
Spouses are no weaklings. In fact a decisive step into marriage is a bold, brave step of faith which weaklings will be wary of considering. The proceeds inherent in a marriage setting really might not be all rossy. Talk about the kids,putting up with Learning and unlearning habits(some spouses can really be annoying),in law-palava and lots more.
(interestingly). Marriage on its own can be stressful not to talk of all these combining factors. And surely,the going can get tough and only the insecure ones pull out when the heat is much.
This of course has an exception,cases of life and death; if the kind spouse no wan make u dey alive…. I’d suggest FLEE!!! That can’t be God wanting your head. Stop the deceit.
Finally, besides, all the warped, bastardized ideas in the form of pre / post wedding cohabitation here and there, Marriage is a divine affair which has a stake with divinity. God instituted Marriage and he pulls it on to finish. Distrusted fellas may not deem it fit to let God into there marital affairs. Lil wonder you have shadows of husbands and wives up and down. Such people are not to be trusted, too.
Congrats for taking the plunge. Never take your eyes off Jesus.
Chill and decisively take that step!
Either ways, HML!
