Point of View: MARRIAGE

"When you're gone, will I loose control?" Answer: YES!


Falling in love is the uncontrollable emotion our soul could feel. You cannot fight nor act against it. It is free. Though sometimes our emotions could confuse us. Do we really love this person? Or do we just want their company? Something that is new, someone who drives us crazy once again. But after sometime the euphoria is gone. Sometimes our feelings fall to a particular person out of desperation or pressure from family and friends only to find out in the end that we were just going with the pressure's flow.

There are many reasons as to why we fall in love with somebody, she/he might shower us the attention that we crave for a long time. Many reasons that we could think of. Things that could make us happy and feel the love. But then somehow along the line, there is something missing where you wonder what is it. No one could answer that feeling even yourself. You are happy yet still looking for an answer. If you look though yourself that's when you found out that the "feeling" have deceived us. But then it was too late or if you're lucky or wise enough to wait~ you'll discover it is just the right time. This is the reason why we should examine ourselves first before going to a next chapter of life - giving the bond forever to someone - getting married!

Getting married is not like the Hollywood stars, it is a Forever Commitment! For me there is no divorce nor separation. Besides according to  Matthew 5:31-32, "Whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce. But I say to you, whoever divorces his wife, except on the ground of unchastity, causes her to commit adultery; and whoever marries a divorce woman commits adultery". Divorce is against the law of God. Moreover, Matthew 19:6 explains marriage in a simple form, "So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate." Meaning marriage is a forever bond.

To summarize it altogether, when getting married the main reason should be LOVE! Carefully examine yourselves, as I've mentioned earlier feelings and social pressure deceives you. The moment you ask God to give you the Bond of Holy Matrimony, it's not only that the flesh are joined together but your souls as well. Will you stay with the same person forever no matter what the situation will lead you? If your answer is a strong YES then go ahead BUT if your answer is MAYBE ~ well, you have a soul searching ahead of you. Don't RUSH to get married! As my Mom always say, Marriage is a no return, no exchange deal. Learn to trust your soul, not with somebody else's. I think it's true. Better yet, ask for God's guidance if that person is the right one for you.

(Well, this is a reminder for myself as well). The Best of Luck to all single ladies out there! God bless.
