Love and Marriage
More and more people are so skeptical when it comes to marriage. It is now at an all time low. There’s young girls having babies between the ages of 14 and 22 and 85% of them never end up marrying the father of their child/children. Those Children are then left either growing up with parents who don’t get along or with only one parent in their life! The few that do stick together, as friends so their children won’t suffer, end up suffering themselves. I hear more and more people saying they don’t want to get married or will never marry. Not to mention that the divorce rate is at its all time high!
Whatever happened to “For better or for worse”? I can understand getting out of a marriage if your spouse cheats or abuses you, but when you do marry someone you should weigh out all options and try to stay together as much as possible before you turn to divorce. The bible tells us all how important marriage is and when we are having children before marriage or not getting married at all, it messes up the way God intended love and relationships to work!
I, myself, won’t have sex before I am married for 3 reasons. One, it is a sin… Two, I don’t want to risk having children at such a young age with no financial stability… and Three, it messes up the “whole” of the relationship between a man and a woman. I am a sinner like everyone else and I have had sex before, but I thank God I know how important it is to wait now. There are so many young girls and boys that don’t even grasp the whole idea of life yet and they are having sex! I couldn’t imagine being a baby having a baby! I strongly encourage young women and men to wait to have sex until you are married! If you don’t have a spiritual way of life, such as being a Christian or believe in marriage, then I encourage you to wait until you are financially, physically and emotionally ready. All it takes is one time having sex, with or without a condom, to get pregnant. Don’t take that chance. If you already have, and say you or your girlfriend is pregnant, don’t turn to abortion, TURN TO GOD! No matter what you believe in, He is not biased and He will help you!
I wrote this to encourage people that are in love to get married, to wait for sex until you are married. Life is as hard as you make it, and if you are willing to go against the word of God, it will not be easy.
