If My Granddaughter Asks, Should I Get Married?

Only if you really want to and only if you find a right person.

The Bible, in I Corinthians 7, indicates that there is a significant advantage to being single, namely, a potential for undistracted devotion to God. And a single person has freedom a married person doesn’t have. But if the thought of not marrying disappoints you – that’s a clue that you are probably better off planning to marry. But a bad marriage is miserable. So don’t marry unless you find a right person.

How do I recognize a right person?

First, you should be satisfied with his looks. Every husband wants his wife to be satisfied with his appearance.

Second, you should enjoy his company.

Third, you should respect his character. You will relate better and find it easier to make good joint decisions if you respect his character. Recognizing good character takes time. It’s safer if your parents help you make that judgment.

Fourth, pick someone who is a good match to you in spiritual enthusiasm, dedication. and beliefs.
