Marriage 101 Part 4

“When I met my wife, she was young and 25 years then. I didn’t want to marry a baby. As far as I know, 25 years is what I call the end of the age of confusion. I had to wait for more two years. The fact is, until true love comes, learn to celebrate and enjoy your singlehood. Don’t rush love, and don’t settle for less”

Find someone who isn’t afraid to admit they miss you. Someone who knows you’re not perfect, but appreciates you as you are. One who gives their heart completely. Someone who says, “I love you” and then proves it day in and day out.

“It’s not hard to find someone who tells you they love you; it’s hard to find someone who actually means it. Find someone who in the future wouldn’t mind waking up with you in the morning, seeing your wrinkles and grey hair, and then falls in love with you all over again”

Remember, to the people who truly love you, you are magnificent already. This is not because they’re blind to your shortcomings, but because they so vividly see the beauty of your soul. Your shortcomings then dim by comparison. The people who care about you are willing to let you be imperfect and magnificent, at the same time.

Don’t put the only keys to your growth and happiness in someone else’s pocket. Relationships are not about authority and obedience; they’re agreements of love and respect

Communication isn’t just an important part of a relationship, it is the relationship. And really, there’s only one rule for being a good communicator: the willingness to hear others. Because we do not always need a busy mind that speaks, just a patient heart that listens

“That fiancé or fiancée that says I don’t want to continue this relationship, may be the way God is saving you from making a monumental mistake that would have terminated your life and destroy His will for you”

“We need to know that we are important to somebody, that somebody truly cares about us, wants us, and accepts us unconditionally. When we doubt that we are loved, we may develop unacceptable behaviour patterns to compensate for it”

“Every woman want appreciation, they want recognition and they want to be protected. Therefore, if a man does not have money he must have a bag of humour”

“In marriage, don’t use one another’s weakness as a weapon of war when you have slight misunderstanding. A good marriage is the union of two good forgivers.

“Michal Saul’s daughter looked through a window, and saw King David leaping and dancing before the LORD; and she despised him in her heart. 2 Sam 6:16. No matter how foolish your spouse may look, never speak despicable thing against them because you don’t know the kind of anointing they carry”
