Why You Shouldn't Get Married - Chris Chukwunyere



Many people have jumped into marriage and jumped right out because they got into it for the wrong reasons.

Never get married to someone because you think you are getting old. Yes, your "mates" may have gotten married and had kids, that shouldn't be your motivation to marry.

Do not get married because of parental or societal pressure. Do not let what people think or expect of you force you into marriage.
They won't live with you in that home.

Do not get married because you want to run away from home. You may not like what you see or hear at home, but there are healthier ways to handle such things. Getting married is not the right way to handle it. You might just end up jumping from the fry pan into the fire.

Never get married because you are lonely. Loneliness is a state of feeling and not a state of being. And because feelings are fleeting, you can get over it. Marriage does not cure loneliness.

Do not get married because you have met a financial knight in a green paper armour. Thinking that marrying someone will solve all your financial problems is selfish. Why build a life with someone on such a foundation? The same applies to those who want to marry into a rich home because of connections and social influence.

Do not get married because of looks. Handsomeness or beauty are fleeting. Looks fade away with age.

Do not get married to someone because they are good in bed. Sex is not all there is to marriage?

Do not get married if you are an eunuch. It is not everybody that was designed to get married.

Do not get married solely because a pastor saw it in a vision and told you Mr. A is the will of God for you. Let God also tell you Himself. Be sure you love them and are attracted to them. Don't go into marriage with a stranger because you heard, "God said" from someone you respect. Same applies to Mr. A coming to tell you "God said". Be sure. Weigh other factors required to make such a decision.

Do not get married because you think marriage or your spouse will make you happy. Your happiness is your personal responsibility. That is too much a load to place on another human being.

If you take out the wrong reasons for getting married, this will leave you with an idea of what is right. That's what I want us to do with this post.

There are so many other wrong  reasons why people get married. What are they? Please leave a comment below. Your comment may just help someone.

Receive sense.

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.
