if you have the desire in your heart for a lifetime partner/soul mate, then i believe that there is indeed that person whom God created specially for you. I believe that God himself put that desire in your heart.
waiting for that person though is what could really test ones faith and character.

Interestingly enough I just watched a descent movie that touches on this from more of a secular stand point and kind of Biblical as well.

It is called The Adjustment Bureau, If you get a chance check it out, it was pretty good fictionally and for entertainment that is.

aka, I'm concerned and saddened that you feel a need to divorce. You've referred to Jewish marriage customs. One of those is an engagement, unlike todays, which is/was binding, requiring a divorce if broken. I don't understand all, and in no way wish to be judgmental, but what does the Lord say?
"either party can decide to annul" An annulment is not the same as divorce. The Catholic Church grants annulment in cases I personally question, but outside the CC, and I believe biblically, grounds for annulment are limited. Annulment declares a 'marriage' null and void and is retroactive.
In prayer for you.

//what about the scripture that says, "What God has joined together, let no man put asunder?"//

donna5535, google BIBLE STUDY MANUALS: JEWISH MARRIAGE CUSTOMS

"what God has joined together" might take on a whole new meaning.

it takes time, and during that time, either party can decide to annul man's marriage agreement. The event that joins two together as one (God's part) has not been consummated.

modern western thought is "entitled to everything now"... instant salvation. parabolic speech by Jesus indicates that "what God has joined together" takes time...delivery, sower and seed, wedding feast,...

Paul: God has the capacity to do it all, it's not a problem for HIM at all.
---Adetunji on 8/16/11

I'm well aware, I just thought it was a novel idea that God has a contingency in the event that we mess His plans up.

again, a soulmate is formed through perseveance and asks full commitment from both parties.
it is true that "hollywoodlove" has invaded our minds for so many decades
that people actually have believed this lie of instant love, everything worth keeping needs sacrifice..
---andy3996 on 8/16/11


I believe God expects us to apply His Word into all of our affairs first and fore most our marriage.

If we will worship God with our spouse we will develop a connection in our souls with our mate and thus produce a soul mate.

When you are not reluctant to be your spiritual self with your spouse their is nothing you cant accomplish for God.

Paul
---paul on 8/16/11


aka you make sense, but what about the scripture that says, "What God has joined together, let no man put asunder?"

What does that scripture really mean? (I'm not sure, so I'm asking you and others for clarification).
---Donna5535 on 8/16/11




aka, I see what you are saying, On the other hand, it could also be a justification to keep your commitments. If one believes one is with a soul mate, then, despite circumstances, they may choose to be faithful, true to their "love".
In any case, it's the Word of God that matters in all circumstances.
---Chria9396 on 8/16/11


"soul mate" is just another justification for not keeping your commitments.

along the same lines of:

i love you, but I am not "in love" with you.

i thought you were my soulmate.
---aka on 8/16/11


God does a lot of wonderful things but I guess marriage is a matter of godly obedience and order, the one that none of us adhered to such as waiting to allow our chritlike parents to choose (many parents were not not Christlike) as this order either by parents or Godly choices dont hardly exist today.

So if we get it wrong we only have our western ways of being independent of Godly council and righeous living to stay within the grain of biblical standards.

Hence Divorce courts BUSY no recession there !!!!!

i think soul mate =
you feel a spirit, but you see an idol.
i think a believer should see Jesus when he/she feel a spirit.
---dsda on 8/15/11


I actually don't know but I do know that God is all knowing and knows who one will marry, divorce, date or if one is to be alone and in service to God only. Bible says that if one is acting unbecomingly towards his virgin, then he should marry her. Otherwise, we should remain in the state that we were when we came to Him. The notion of a Soul Mate is a New Age term. Statistics have indicated that any person has dozens of people whom he/she may be compatible with for marriage. But stats also show a 64% divorce rate in the USA. What does that say about people finding their Soul Mates in this country? You have a better chance parking your car on a railroad for an hour:).

I don't know about Mary and Joseph (however the last film gives much more importance to Joseph in the story then the bible) but adam and Eve where defenately soulmates (since she was taken outa Him. was Abraham and Sarah? probably but then again we know unsufficiently about their early lives, where Isaak and rebekkah if they where, they did not always push toghether forward any case i believe that indeed there are better matching couples and lesser but basically to become a soulmat is hard labour and sacrifice from both parties

Wasn't Eve Adam's soulmate?

Was Joseph's Mary's soulmate?

I'm not sure, so I'm asking what you think.

This is a very interesting questions because sometimes we think we met our soul mate then after we marry them we come to find out "ut oh, it isn't him." LOL
---Donna5535 on 8/15/11


YES I believe that the Almighty God of order has a soul mate for each person, but HE also has replacement for them in case one of them refuses to agree to go into union with his/her God's chosen mate.
---Adetunji on 8/15/11

Thats a busy God.

Do you believe that God has made a person especially for another person, a soul mate, to enjoy life with?
absolutely Yes and absolutely not. However God has a desire in all our lives, and he has previewed certain people to be together, there is no such thing as an instant soulmate. to ghet a soulmate is hard day to day work, self-denial and dedication of both partners. only then we can become soul-partners. JUST as John 1:12 says But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Christ died for us, we give up our life to Him.
---andy3996 on 8/14/11


(which that's all you are supposed to marry if you are a believer), then the one you marry has all that's needed to become your soul mate.

That is exactly right. So many times people divorce for they say they were not my soul mate.

If God did make us perfect little drones that fit us perfectly, unless He forced us, we would probably marry her sister.

I say all have the potential to become the perfect mate.

Cant be soul mates though for the soul will live for eternity and in Heaven we neither marry or are given in marriage.

Paul
---paul on 8/14/11


Let me put it this way. If you marry a believer (which that's all you are supposed to marry if you are a believer), then the one you marry has all that's needed to become your soul mate. It's just a matter of working toward that goal. Nothings easy & just handed to you on a silver platter. Even soul mates have their own ideas & ways of doing things which are not necessarily yours. So Are there soul mates ? Sure. Is life going to be blessed with perfect harmony because of the soul mate union? DUH, of course not. Life is complicated. But life is easier when your spouse is your best friend/soul mate.

"Do you believe that God has made a person especially for another person, a soul mate, to enjoy life with?"
Well Paul, that is a nice thought:o) However, 'if' it is true, I would liken it to the narrow way. "Few there be that find it," or him, or her:o)

\\I was asking the question, so I assume you do not feel their are soul mates?\\

No. Do you feel there are soul mates? Why?

There's a Talmudic saying: A good, happy marriage is as difficult for God to pull off as the parting of the Red Sea.

While I don't believe that anything is impossible with God, this saying does point out that in any marriage, there are two hard heads--not just one as for a single person--for God to work with and coordinate.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

how many soul mates exchange wedding vows? 50% end in divorce... "christian" or not.

how many of those divorce as soul mates?

having much in common does not a soul mate make...just ask isaac. what he saw at the well was probably considered a soul mate. near his death, what he did not see, that was a soul mate?

---aka on 8/13/11


Yes but i believe few people find that person.They are someone who has a great deal in common with you.
---shirley on 8/13/11


How does this account for those people who never find a spouse, or find the wrong one, or for whatever reason do not get married?

Glory to Jesus Christ!

I have heard this for years as well as guardian angels which have no scriptural backing to my knowledge.

I believe that God knows who we will marry and that perhaps He prepares us for such an event.

But to say God created someone for me I just don't know If I believe that.

I believe we all can be successful in marriage no matter who it is with if we are both willing to adhere to Gods principles for marriage.

God gave us His Word for us all to prepare ourselves to be a good mate.

And that to me overrides personalty, attitude and demeanor.

I've seen Pastors divorce their spouse because they found their true soul mate,I say they simply wouldn't do as Christ says to have a successful marriage to start with.

Absolutely!!! Why not? He tells us in His word that he cares enough to notice when a sparrow falls from the sky & He cares even more for us. So, God knowing He created us with the longing for human companionship, I feel confident that He created someone for the ones who want someone. There are people who have no desire to marry. Never had it, & never will. But there are strong binding friendships for those people as well. God loves us & wants the best for us, so I personally believe,yes.
