CULTURAL PREJUDICES harass many women who don’t have a husband, because of their own decision or because the time has not yet right for them. It would seem that the idea of the “better half’ permeates the thoughts of many, making them believe that a woman without a spouse is incomplete. Thus, many girls rush into a marriage that brings more woes than good, or live their single lives as something negative that makes them feel insufficient or not very attractive in men’s eyes.
It is important to consider that marriage is an option and not a pressing need that must be taken care of at all costs. The desire to get married can become a destructive obsession that often is caused by those closest to the single woman. Mothers should be guides and counselors for their daughters, making them feel valued regardless their marital status.
Your enjoyment of life does not depend on your marital status. The married woman isn’t necessarily happier than the single woman and vice versa. Single and married life have their own problems and rewards.
So, don’t ask God to send you a husband; rather, submit to His all and trust that He will give you what’s best for your earthly life as an anticipation of heaven.
Being single isn’t a synonym for loneliness or neglect. The romanticized image of the married woman, as someone who enjoys company and companionship, in contrast to the negative image of someone who is still single after having passed certain age, are only prejudices that come from ignorance.
Dear friend, who are reading these lines and are not yet married, don’t rush into your search; if God has a husband for you, He will bring him to your side at the right time and according to His will. Now is the time to enjoy what you have; and let me tell you that all the things that a single women can isn’t possible for a married woman.
Live in a close relationship with Jesus and cultivate friendships without intentions of finding a husband, but only to seek friendship; get ready, work, help, serve God, and everything will be added to you.
