Many of  us have the wrong priorities when it comes to choosing a life partner. The challenge with these priorities is that it hinders us from marrying someone that we will partner to fulfil purpose together and live a fulfilling life.

Any person that is not in support of your dream is not worth marrying. If you think they are worth marrying then get ready because your dream will not be worth pursuing when you marry them.

Before we look at the priorities, let's look at some reasons why you shouldn't marry:
  1. Don't marry because of age: Age is a number. Don't marry because are pressured by your age and then you go and marry someone who will cause you lifetime pain and regret.
  2. Don't marry because of sex: They are sexy should not be your reason for marrying them oh. After sex, what do they have to offer to improve you life and dream. If they are sexy on bed but have no sense of value — they will be a liability not an asset. They should be Beauty and Brain. They should be sexy with sense. Sex will never give your life fulfillment.
  3. Don't marry because of pity: Don't marry anyone because you want to help compliment them for the challenge they have gone through in life. If you marry her because she is depressed, when she is out of depression courtesy of your services; she will no longer want to be with you because she was never in love with you, she just needed a shoulder to cry on. If you are in a relationship quickly detect this and then change strategy.
  4. Don't marry because of pressure: You have your own unique life to live. Don't marry because all your friends are married or because your parents are mounting pressure on you.
  5. Don't marry because of fame: Fame will never make you fulfilled. Seeking to marry someone that has fame you will end up to blame yourself. If you want fame make impact.
  6. Don't marry because of money:  If the wealth goes, will still marry him/her. True wealth is not in the possessions they have but in the vision they are possessed by.
  7. Don't marry because of their physique: There is nothing wrong marrying a beautiful woman. You may want her slim or fat, tall or short, big front and back as well as small front and back. You may want a specific color of skin. Just ensure your desires here is in alignment with God's will for you. You should not make this your priority because they are subject to change but your life has chance for change
  8. Don't marry because of tribal difference: You have not married, because all your suitors are not from your tribe. As a Christian you belong to one tribe it is called “ the lion of the tribe of Judah”. If you are in Christ you can marry from anywhere as far as God is the one leading you.
  9. Don't marry to proof a point: Don't marry to proof a point to anyone because in your matrimonial home you will be face to face with reality. It's not a game where you add or lose points.
  10. Don't marry to compliment your past: Your past is in your past, now face your future. You now have a new life to live. Glory to  God.
  11. Don't marry to please people: If you marry to please people and displease God and yourself; who will bear burden? It  is YOU.
Who you choose to spend the rest of your life with is your second most important choice in life after you  have made your first choice; which is accepting Jesus Christ as your personal lord and saviour.

Your priorities should be to:

  • Marry for LOVE: Marry because you love him and because he loves you as Christ loves the church
  • Marry a lover of GOD: Marry a person that is in love with God. A person that fears God. This will make them nurture, cherish and nourish you with love just as they have received from their Father.
  • Marry your BEST FRIEND: Marry someone you can relate with; someone you can gist and have fun together.
  • Marry for and on PURPOSE: Most importantly you marry  for and on purpose, because your marriage  has a God given assignment to fulfil.

Hope this inspire you to have the right priorities for marriage.If you have not given your life to Christ; only Him can empower you to live a life that please Him,  you can say this prayer:

Lord Jesus Christ I acknowledge that I am a sinner, I believe in your death and resurrection. I ask you to forgive me my sins, I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life. I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name. Amen.

If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
