I meet a lot of men who say they aren’t “ready for marriage just yet.” This is acceptable if you are still in high school, but at what age should guys become men and start getting serious about finding a wife.
“He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the LORD.” Proverbs 18:22
The Bible says a wife is a good thing… and what guy doesn’t want favor from the Lord? Evidently a lot of guys see “favor from the Lord” as a meaningless thing.
I talked with a guy about a month ago and he told me that he is finally ready to start thinking about having a serious relationship and possibly marriage.
Awesome! I always get excited when I hear guys say this! Then I asked him how old he was; he looked like he was 24 years old. He was 28.
28 year old men are just now thinking about marriage… wow, times have changed for sure.
People wonder why women like me are still single… it is because the men our age are only just now thinking about being a man and taking a wife.
Although we would rather have them realize this at age 28 than to never have them realize it at all, but really? Why did it take them so long to come to this conclusion?
I won’t get on my soap box, but I would like to say this: Women everywhere are praying for men to step up and be MEN. Men, be the kind of man who every woman prays she will one day marry.
