This article says you can be single and be the best you can ever be.
So, what I got from this is live your life completely selfishly, have 3 lovers a year while backpacking and break hearts along the way... Not criticizing; that's actually outstanding advice! I'm a dad too, so it's a great opportunity to influence the next generation of vagabond wanderers as well! Great article!
You probably don't love the guy enough, so why are you getting married to him ?
If you trully love somebody you would want to spend your life with them and that is what marriage is all about
If you are scared of getting married then don't get married, you are not yet in love enough to get married.
Yep! being single is really cool, at least one can explore (talent) and do things he/she couldn't av done while dating.
It also makes one to be more focus especially as a career lady/Gent.
It creates room for freedom to be who one wants to be and the most interesting parts are:
* No more midnight calls
* No more stalking (Following one about or sending friends to spy).
* No more "Who's Number is this?"
* No more monitoring
* No more "You've just got to abide to my rules!"
* No more sticking to someone like glue
* No hurts
* No sheding of tears
* No heart break
* No nagging or exchanging of banters, it can be so sickening when arguing
And one can choose to become a celibate!
because women are finally getting it. marriage is not a do or die affair, neither is being in a relationship.
but seriously girls, if u find someone good (they are usually not what we imagine them to be, neva tall dark and handsome, probaply some1 u have always overlooked for the position), stick with him. relationships can be good if u get someone who is crazy about u (Note: not someone u adore more than he adores u) and will be willing to let u have ur space and is just glad to have you. in which case there wont be pressure to change , do more, give more and completely loose urself in a relationship and forget u used to be a completely and seperate entity before u met this guy.
most importantly dont knock relationships or marriage. they can be as great as 'singlehood'. just take ur time, open ur eyes, be willing to give the underdog a chance and stop waiting for the butterflies- ur life is not an M&B story.
Well i am preparing for the 2007 race as a governor and that is my 'family support pitch'; women love it and I do mean it. i also have 'lets save the earth’ and ‘governance with compassion' pitches.
You will have to wait for the campaign proper to hear the rest.
VOTE FOR ME. I HAVE UR INTEREST AT HEART.
@viper, you're rude, annoying and funny. my guess is that its terribly attractive to women. i am sure women fall over themselves for u and then have trouble deciding whether to hug u or slap u shitless. lucky man.
by the way this is the bible verse in context. Genesis 2
[center]21And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
25And they were both Unclad, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.[/center]
just like my mentor, i'll say one shall chase a thousand and two shall chase ten thousand and not just two thousand. GOD is concerned about our progress and i believe he would not recommend it if it was not good for us. if you find the right one and try to be the right one yourself, a partner will be a PLUS to your life.
This is how much women loose of themselves
they have to chage their last names- loss of identity
they are treated as breeding-machines
as the property of their husbands
made to provide unpaid child-care
made to work as unpaid labour in the home
adopt his family even though the bible says its the other way round 'a man will leave his father and mother and cleave unto his wife" but women end up leaving their family, thats just plain wrong
u cook for him
sleep with him
submit to him even if he is an Naughty Person
put up with his affairs ;
leave your job to b a 'stay at home' mom; and u have to start hassling husband for money thereon
and if by some streak of independence u have a job that pays well then u wont need his money. that means the only thing u will be getting form him is his name. a name u dont even want to change in the first place.
if something goes wrong with one of ur kids; God fordib but assuming u have a son thats a total , he becomes ur son and the national hero is his father's son
i could go on but i dont want to. if u guys are completely fair u can point out a million ways women get the rubbish end of marriage
i am not advocating for the world to change overnight but in each of ur marriages u can right the wrongs.
we'll rebuild marriage as an institution one home, one family, one marriage at a time
Sweetheart, i'm a bible scholar, so please let's not go there. If you want to talk about Abraham, he lived in a different time, compared to the time of Christ, so the rules there differed. A relationship is about 2 individuals. Who said the man is always right? he needs help too, and that's why God created women! it means they know something men don't! and i'm sure it goes beyond bedroom politics. Eve wasn't created to be subservient to Adam, she was called along side to be his help." And please don't tell me we're paying for her sin of making Adam eat the fruit, cuz the bible clearly points out that Adam wasn't deceived. See their problem--they didn't communicate. If they had dialoged, i'm sure they'd have agreed to ignore the devil. My point is it take 2 to tango, not one being less than the other or in subservience to the other. The same bible talks about each submiting to the other.
My brother, this is supposed to be a romance forum, let's not make it "Christianity for Christians" forum.
I think u missed mine too,i neva women should be slaves to men.i meant "subservient'.its just a problem of semantics here.Slaves r toatlly controlled while subservients maintain a degree of autonomy.get it!!even in the bible,Abraham was tha boss but decisios made by his wife influenced him a great deal.If she was his slave how come about dat!!
