WILL YOU MARRY ME?
:
Isn’t that the question that pops of tears in the eyes every young woman? Isn’t that the question every young man dream of asking one day? Isn’t that the question we all get excited about whether we are being asked or we are listening as it is asked someone else? But do we really understand the implications? Do we understand the height of what marriage is?
:
Are we ready to live exclusively for just our spouse? Are we faithful enough to stick to one man or one woman no matter how much we feel it would be adventurous trying something else with another? Isn’t the “for better for worse” thing scary? Do you know sometimes the worst is greater than the best? Do you know the true test of love isn’t in the best but in the worst? Is not just about being optimistic, are we ready to accept the imperfections of another for a lifetime?
:
Oh, maybe we think the butterfly feeling will last forever? Have we taken our time to study the butterfly? Haven’t you noticed it doesn’t last as long as we would have wanted it to? No matter the beauty and color of a butterfly, it dies at a very little pressure! Oh yes, the butterfly feeling would be there, it would be beautiful and make us feel so excited about this thing called love but is that feeling enough? Is it strong enough to withhold the pressures of this lifetime union? Do you have streams of incomes that can sustain the responsibilities of marriage? Can you handle issues without involving third parties?
:
Are you ready to forgive an unrepentant sinner? Are you ready to forbear and keep bearing it till forever? Are you ready to say sorry when you did nothing wrong? Are you ready to take the blame when you were at your very best? Are you ready to spend a lot of your time pleasing someone even when they aren’t committed to you the way you’re committed to them? Are you ready to live someone else dreams?
:
He or she surely have their own past! Some are really ugly and sad! Age you ready to leave the past in the past? What is your motive for this marriage? Is it just so you don’t loose all you’ve invested in that relationship or is it just so you please those who have been anticipating it?
:
Are you mentally ready for this lifetime union with someone who doesn’t think exactly the same way you think?
:
This is not to scare anyone about marriage!
Marriage is sweet but only ready people can tap into its sweetness! Those and many more are questions seeking for answers before you make or accept that proposal. Personally, I know my struggles, I know I am still battling to be the best I can be for myself and others! I know I am still battling with unconditional forbearance even at the slightest suspicion of unfaithfulness! I know I am still that very jealous young man who is fighting insecurity. I know am still learning to forgive unconditionally. I know I talk a lot about marriage which doesn’t mean am ready for it! I keep learning, I keep practicing to be the best husband and father in the world…
:
And until I able to answers those questions above and score positive in almost all of them, I don’t need anything called marriage in my life. I think there is time for everything and the time for marriage isn’t determined by age, it is determined by my ability to give positive answers to the above questions and live by it.
:
Before I say “I do” I must surely know I can do. Will you marry me?
