Reasons For Marriage

For the single men and women who are really interested in getting married, I want to ask this question: What's in marriage that you would want to have? For the married couples who want to jump out of matrimony, I like to ask this next question: What's in marriage that pushes you for separation?

Catherine, I was hoping someone would expand on my comment. You did a marvelous job. And I thank you!

Well, it is not a biblical answer, because you did not finish or explain scripture. "But if they do not have self-control, let them marry. For it is better to marry than to burn with passion". 1 Cor. 7-7. Also, in v. 7 Paul tells you that he remained single.>>>I already knew that but I didn't know where it was in the Bible, when all the discussions were being done on this topic. No Paul was not a false apostle. He suffered more than anyone for Jesus Christ. Another hot topic in time gone past.

The apostle Paul said it is better to marry than to burn. So that is the biblical answer.

Life is not so clean cut as you put it. Marriage is something that every person who wants a God like lifestyle blessed and fruitful requires to get married but you forget it's sanctity blessed by God and an enemy to the devil. When one can fight a thousands two can set ten thousand to flight, and ain't no devil/demon in hell is happy with that. So hence our troubles being single/married!

I would want to have an equally yoked partner. One who desires to pray with me instead of watching TV and playing on his computer. I just wanted a man after God's own heart, but didn't get one.
As far as pushes you into a separation? Money problems, but that wasn't it for me. It was domestic violence. I think if two are not walking togetherwith the Lord, and are not equally yoked, there will be trouble unless the two are willing to work very hard at the marriage.

Bruce5656: Basically, you are not among those that I considered who would want to jump out of matrimony. In fact, I considered you to be the best person who could say what you want in marriage because you have been there. I hope the singles who are longing to get married will consider what you have said:"100% committed relationship and investment in someone that only marriage can bring."

Donna9759: Thank you for sharing with us your reasons. You have my sympathy. Dale, Thank you for the good words and the advice. Lynette, God bless you with your pure desires and hopes. John T, that's a good joke - and good advice too!
---bebet3754 on 12/23/06

Thanks for the compliment John T.
Yeeeaaahhhh, I know the Lord has me where He wants me. It just feel so good to say what you feel, and what you're thinking out loud. Who knows there might be another who has not yet found the fair maiden of their dreams as you have :).

God Bless

Lynette, I've seen that you are a an intelligent woman, the sort that I would want to marry.

And I would, except my wife would go ballistic! LOL

God has you EXACTLY where he wants you--for now. Instead of saying "No!"; he may be saying, "Not yet."

As a counselor, you know how rash decisions can lead to disasters. Good counselors are wounded healers, and you know your history; God knows it better, as well as your future. Trust him, he is always good.

I desire to share my life with a man who believes as I do that Jesus is Lord. A praying man who understands the meaning of Godly companionship. One who believes a marriage built on faith, love, trust, respect, etc, can be healthy and sound, who is willing to work with me, as one.
I see the failing marriages, I hear the unhappiness, I choose to believe it does not have to be that way, and am willing to learn how to make it work, one day at a time. Because that's all we've got.

I was married for 27 years. Never did I think that I might want to "jump our of matrimony" as you put it. Now that I have been on my own for almost 5 years (widowed) I find my self very content the way I am. However, I would rather be married than alone because I miss the companionship.
---Bruce5656 on 12/20/06

I have a special friend who is very dear to me and I find in her much of that companionship that I would like to have, (but, of course the physical element of marriage is not there). Even though she is a wonderful companion and even though she is very dear to me, there is not the committment that comes with marriage.
---Bruce5656 on 12/20/06

What we share can only go so far. I would like to have that 100% committed relationship and investment in someone else that only marriage can bring. However, as she says. It is better to be single wishing you were married than married wishing you were single.
---Bruce5656 on 12/20/06

The Bible says we are to be equally yoked, Christian with Christian.

This answers both questions. A marriage made in heaven is better than a bed made in hell.

A team requires both 'oxen' pulling together. With only one Christian, you have division, strife, divorce.

The single looks upon a good marriage with longing, if there is unrest with singleness. The optimum chance for a marriage survival, follows God's mandate - Do not be unequally yoked.
