Good afternoon, friends,
Engagement is knowing you’re betrothed to someone before saying the beautiful words of “I do”. However, this time isn’t always easy, especially if you’re having a long engagement. So, how do you prepare before marriage? Are there practical ways to actually prepare yourself for the longest, most trying, and yet most beautiful journey of life?
A Solid Foundation
There are several ways to prepare for married life before marriage, and it has absolutely nothing to do with modern culture’s ideas of preparation. Many people today think that the keys to marriage preparation are living together before marriage, premarital sex to test for compatibility, and dating other people to see if they fit better with your lifestyle. Unfortunately, people who live this way are missing out on building a strong foundation for marriage.
“Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.” —Matthew 7:24-27
