Wrong choice in marriage is as a result of bad decision.
Marriage, an institution ordained by God has been in existence since the creation of the world. “At that time, a man shall live his father and mother to live with his wife, and they shall become one”
It is very obvious that 95% of marriages today don’t last because of wrong choice of partner.
I heard a story of two lovers who married and separated after three (3) days of their marriage.
Marriage is not a bed of roses. It is meant for mature people who are ready to take full responsibility as a father or mother.
I shall outline 5 Reasons why people make wrong choice in marriage.
5 Reasons why people make the wrong choice in marriage.
- LUST OF THE FLESH:
Courtship is a time of building and nurturing friendship, commitment and enduring qualities like godly character, virtue, integrity and compatibility. Some couples indulge in premarital sex and sexual pleasures, forgetting that casual sex will result to a casual relationship.
- LUST OF THE EYES:
The human heart or mind is captivated by what the eyes sees. Many people marry because they had means (often financial or material) that would help them escape their own adverse circumstances. What happens if the circumstances or situation change, or the other person discovers your true motives?
- PRIDE OF LIFE:
It is destructive insecurity that makes people want to assert themselves over others. Respect involves caring about the other person’s best interest and not pushing only for personal gain yet, people, because of who they are, marry certain people because they believe they are the ones good enough for them.
Pressure manifests in different ways. It could be parental or family pressure. Your parents or family members wants you to marry this man or that woman for some reasons.
When a man and a woman have not taken out time to know each other fully during courtship, the result is often a failed or broken marriage.
