Marriage is a formal union between two individuals that unites their lives in four ways. Spiritually, legally, emotionally and economically. Traditionally, marriage is looked at as playing an important role in preserving morals and fulling the purpose that God has for your relationship. In the modern world, marriage is sought after for different reasons. Whatever your reasons are, have a look at the three most important things you need to know about marriage as a woman.
1. Communicate before getting married – One of the most important things that needs to be talked about before getting married is finances. Don’t be shy about questions like this because you are deciding who to spend the rest of your life with. Both of you need to be on the same page. Would you start a company with a friend if you didn’t know his/her financial situation or how he/she handled money? Marriage should be treated similarly. Don’t wait to discuss this topic and similarly important topics.
2. Understand Submission – There is such a misconception about the word submission. To have a successful marriage you must be able to understand the biblical hierarchy and your position as a wife. It must be understood that your husband is the head of your household and if he is following Christ that you are required to follow.
3. Character is more important than your partner’s salary – Many women are willing to tolerate unfaithfulness so long as they’re able to sustain a certain lifestyle. There aren’t many people who can find true love and happiness when living in that situation. Your partner can always earn more money. However, a partner who earns a lot of money can’t buy character.
