10 Successful Marriage Secrets For The Youths And Young People By Joseph Edem Bassey

  "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh." ~Genesis 2:24 

INTRODUCTION To Successful Marriage Secrets:

 The history of marriage can be traced to the moment God made a woman from the rib of man. Significantly, the event was and is a union orchestrated and ordained by God to man. The leaving and cleaving is a matter of maturity.

 Nowadays, young boys and girls have developed interest in marriage matters and have ended up in cleaving and leaving, instead of leaving and cleaving.

 It is obvious that ignorance of marriage relation has led to unwanted pregnancy, abortion, increase in STDs among young people and destruction of destinies.

What Is Marriage?

 Marriage is a union between a man and a woman who come together in agreement, acceptance and understanding, to live as man and wife in love and honesty.

What Marriage Is Not

 Marriage is not a communion taken by young people on every first or last sundays of every month. It is not a reason for indulging in sexually immoral activities, especially by young people as a means of finding a good suitor.

 I have seen and heard young people in sexual and intimate relationships, give the reason for having those partners as a key to get married quickly. Therefore, I decided to write this article as my special  gift to everyone who have been with me all these while (the youths in particular.)

 According to the book of 1st Corinthians chapter 7 verse 32 and 33, Apostle Paul said to the people;

 "But I would have you without carefulness. He that is unmarried careth for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please the Lord:

 But he that is married careth for the things that are of the world, how he may please his wife."

Disclaimer: This message is not against marriage or marrying, it is mainly for the purpose of correcting the wrong mindset and practices among young people in the aspect of marriage and its relations.

 The secrets below are to help the youths and young people live a fulfilled life, making God and the world proud of us.
