Are you really cut out for marriage? (i)

In the last series I treated about handling marital pressure, I mentioned that it is not everyone that is cut out for marriage and I felt the eyebrows shoot up. 

But you should understand something. The fact that I am saying that it is not everyone that will get married does not mean that I am saying that we all don’t need companionship. Companionship can come from friends, family and even God (if you are spiritual). The point is that each person’s reality is different.

You may not agree with me so I am going to list certain ingredients that are necessary for marriage then you decide for yourself if you are up for it.

1. Selflessness

Marriage is the most selfless institution on Earth. Consistently, you are required to consider someone else and do what is best for that person even when it’s not convenient for you. What probably sucks the most is that the person may not be as sacrificial as you are but that doesn’t mean you should stop. Therefore, do you have it in you to put yourself last or put your plans on hold for someone else? 

2. Submission

Many of us are extremely independent so it may be hard for you to come under someone else. It makes no sense sometimes to subject your desires to another person’s when you feel like you are perfectly capable of making your own decisions. I remember that someone once described submission in marriage as choosing not to do something even if you can simply because your husband said you shouldn’t. That is hard but necessary for a marriage to work because one person has to lead. 

3. Humility

In the end, no one can be selfless or submissive without being humble. Humility is the backbone of marriage because if you can’t bring yourself low then you are not ready to love.

These are hard words, right? Get set for the next part.
