Happy weekend guys…Hope everyone is having a good one so far!
Have you guys heard about Naija Husband and Naija Wife? well i hadn’t till a few days ago, and i just happened to stumble on their blog Naijahusband.com, I literally laughed all night when reading it, it totally cracked me up, you just have to check them out! So i came across this post on their blog and i just had to share!!! Enjoy!
- Because I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. I pictured life without her, and decided I much preferred life with her. I pictured the worst possible scenarios (e.g. death. dismemberment, disability, job loss) and thought about whether I would still want to be with her if such things were to occur.
- Time + Trials + Acceptance + Faith + Choice. After some time together I’d learnt a lot about her. Things you can’t learn in just a few months. Time meant that I waited for clarity and Time also meant we went through a few trials and still came out strong. Those trials revealed our personalities to each other. Whether it was family wahala or financial hardship…only time can reveal how people act towards you during those times. Time also meant I learnt acceptance. I accepted the things about her that I liked as well as those annoying things about her that would probably never change (longer blog post on that later). I exercised my faith that God was in control of our future and then I made a choice to love her for the rest of my life. It was a conscious choice and one I have to remake every morning, when I wake up next to her. That was the last step, making the choice
- You will have some days where you question your decision. Doubt will always be there. You’ll ask yourself “Should I have gotten married?” “Should I have even dated her?” “Will this last?”
- You will never know the definite answer to your question. It’s kind of like asking “Is there a God?” You can be as confident as you want to be, but you only find out the answer in the end. Until then, you pray and have faith that you made the right choice to believe in a God. Same goes with marriage. You trust and believe and have faith that this is the person for you, and you strive to make sure it works with the person you chose, but you won’t know if it will last until it does.
