Ephesians 5:22 says, “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.” Genes
is 2:18 says, “And the LORD God said, [It is] not good that the man should be alone; I will make him a help meet for him.”
Most parents will tell their daughters to finish High School, College, get a good job, and then marry and start your family. Why wouldn’t we tell our daughters to finish High School, College, and get a good job, but instead of getting married travel, become successful in their career, and just live life, then get married?
By telling them to get married after college may be the reason you have so many women that are unhappily married. You have married women that are jealous of single women, their own daughters, cheating on their husband, and envy other single women. You have women that try and live their life through their daughter, in marriage counseling, and marriages ending in divorce. Keep in mind your husband is happy and loves you because he is doing what God has called him to be, the head of the house. So your unhappiness is very confusing to him, because he is playing his role, and you are unhappy playing your role.
I think this is the reason you see married women that are so judgmental, gossipers, envy, known to spread rumors, and just downright mean. Because they are seeing other women living their life, making their dreams come true, and moving freely without accountability to anyone but God and themselves, all because they got married too soon.
You see women are called to be a help mate, and to submit to their husbands Your husband has the final say on how you spend your money, in what order your children should be raised, and the order in which your home will be run.
As Christians are you sitting our daughters up to be unhappy later in their life by tell them to get married so early in life? Have you ever notice you never know how smart some women are until they are divorced? You never see how strong they are until they are divorced?
To all young women of all races that are Christians, you can get a man now, or you can wait until you figure out who you are, and what you want to do in this world.
