Let's Talk About Marriage

What do you think about about marriage? When is the right time to get married? Do we really have to be financially secure to get married (if that is so when do we know we have reached that stage of financial security)? What is the best way: To wait for the right person to come up or go and seek for that person? Is there such a thing as a perfect marriage?

I have other questions but i’ll just leave it at that for the time being. If you can, choose one and throw in your opinions. I would appreciate that very much. I’ll blog more about this marriage thing when i can finish some constructive thought and reflection on this article which is superb.

  1. i hv been pondering about the failure of marriage especially in western world. What is the factor of success or failure of one marriage? In some context, they may seem to be matching couple, with strong financial background but still fail. Why? I tend to think that probably some people have idealize marriage as happily ever after and relate it with feelings. There is no perfect marriage. The things is there is bound to be disagreement, changes of feeling, different perspective, ideas, goals, etc.. and there bound to be suffering in marriage. Whether we are willing to endures and give/take will be important factor in a marriage. Marriage is a commitment. As for seeking, i think we have to seek if there is desire and suitable timing and person. i think the best way to check wheter is suitable is to ask authority like parents, pastor, because they know us and will think best for us, and not biase. Just my opinions.

  2. Ahkiik,

    What you said here does speak great volumes of wisdom,

    “I tend to think that probably some people have idealize marriage as happily ever after and relate it with feelings. There is no perfect marriage. The things is there is bound to be disagreement, changes of feeling, different perspective, ideas, goals, etc.. and there bound to be suffering in marriage.”

    But let me add some more. Marriage is somewhat not so much idealize now, probably because people tend to see it as a constrain on an enjoyable life. Sure i agree that there are some that have thought of marriage in an unhealthy idealized state but not so much in our time and age. So like what the article says, Christians are all talk on abstinence and keeping the self pure for marriage and choosing the right mate but forget to talk exhaustively on what is marriage really.

    Thanks for your insights at the end…people in authority, those in whom we respect do have valid guidance that any single person should heed to.

    Blessings!
