AVOIDING A BAD MARRIAGE.
By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome PhD.

```After salvation, the most important choice you will need to make is who to marry. This choice is so important that if you miss it, you will suffer for long, if you get it right then you will enjoy forever.

A bad marriage can affect every other area of your life.
This subject is so important, so many married people are hoping to be single again so as to make the right choice. If you are single please don't just be in a hurry to get married, you have the best opportunity to prepare for it.

For two people to come together to live in peace and harmony, they must agree spiritually, mentally and physically. 
Just like an elephant cannot marry an ant so also a believer cannot marry an unbeliever. If an elephant marries an ant how would they live, if a goat marries a fish where would they meet? You must look for a Godly man or a Godly woman to marry, nothing can beat this.

The devil's primary target is the family. He knows that everyone belongs to a family and if he can make two wrong people meet then he has
succeeded affecting the community and nations negatively. 
Ignore your age and the pressure for a
moment, the pressure in a wrong marriage is far worse. God has somebody for you but you must set your priorities right. What do you need in a woman? What do you need in a man?

Marriage is not about what you want, it is about who you need, that will make you better while you make him better. It is about destiny.
That is why you must know your purpose before you get
married.` *‘Genesis 2:18`*. `You must pray before you choose. God knows the best person for you, it is only wise to seek His will.
It is very easy to know God’s will when sex is not involved. The moment sex is involved and you want to know His will then He will blank you out. Why? Because you have broken His first Law of ` *`NO SEX`*` before marriage.

If you have had sex in the past then you need to repent totally and stay away from each other for sometime then you can seek the face of God. Your marriage will not be hell on earth. Your
marriage will be honorable in the name of Jesus Christ.

πŸ”‘ Don't marry for sex.

πŸ”‘ Don't marry because you are of age.

πŸ”‘ Don't marry because you are getting old.

πŸ”‘ Don't marry because you are lonely.

πŸ”‘ Don't marry because you need someone to support you
financially.

πŸ”‘ Don't marry because you mistakenly got pregnant.

πŸ”‘ Don't marry because you don't want to lose the person.

πŸ”‘ Don't marry because of family pressures.

πŸ”‘ Don't marry because you like the idea of marriage and admire every wedding gown you see.

πŸ”‘ Don't marry because all your friends are getting married.

πŸ”‘ But get married because you want to fulfill destiny.

πŸ”‘ Get married because you want to be a help mate.

πŸ”‘ As a man, get married because you want to fulfill your purpose.

God will help you in choosing, please let His will be done.```

_Amen!_
