Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband.”
The man that you’re going to choose to marry is the man with whom you will be spending the rest of your days. He is going to be father of any future children that you might want to have. He will be your partner in mapping out how you are going to live the remainder of your life. That’s why it’s fairly important for you to always be sure about the man that you’re going to marry. There can be no room for uncertainty or doubt when it comes to selecting your mate for life.
If you end up marrying someone who isn’t right for you or who isn’t ready for marriage in general, it could spell disaster both for yourself and for the relationship. You may essentially be sentencing yourself to a life of stress, anxiety, and constant suffering. Remember that breaking up with a husband is so much more complicated than just breaking up with a boyfriend. There are plenty of more serious and important things to take into consideration when ending a marriage most especially the emotional issues and trauma that can come from a broken marriage. It’s just a significantly much more profound breakup than merely breaking up with a boyfriend.
