Marriage Is A Beautiful Thing, IF YOU WANT IT!!!




I can remember in my twenties feeling the pressure of marriage... It's like from the time you're born, marriage is predestined for your life... Whether it's family; friends or the inner sabotuer, marriage seems to be the destination you're eventually supposed to reach.


I have amazing examples of marriage... Parents were married over 40 years; oldest sister has been married 25 years and my youngest sister, 30 years... I have seen beautiful things come from a union, but after getting over that initial pressure of marriage, I've now realize marriage isn't something I desire. For some this may seem weird, but there are many that finds comfort in knowing they're not alone...


Many people will try to place you in a box if you're not married. Something has to be wrong with you and sadly to say, some of you have allowed these people to convince you that you're not enough. Marriage should never be the end goal for anyone, nor should it be the your only pursuit, life is too short to focus on whether or not you will find "The One"... I have a friend who shared she believed God has called her to be married... Now I'm not saying she won't ever get married, but she has spent the majority of 50 plus years feeling as though she hasn't served her purpose because she isn't married and to me, this is tragic...


I can't speak to anyones calling, but I do know God has given us a life to live and I believe it is an insult if we waste it jumping from relationship to relationship picking up baggage because we are choosing people He doesn't even want for us.... Marriage is beautiful if that's what you want, but for all you people whose truth is "Single is the best place for you", find the freedom in your truth and don't allow family, friends or the world to force you into a commitment that rapes you of your happiness, joy and peace....


What I know for sure is... Marriage is a wonderful and beautiful thing for those who want it...
