“How should I prepare myself for marriage?” – Mandy, Santa Rosa, CA
A person who is spiritually mature and walking with God is more prepared for marriage than anyone else. Marriage demands commitment, passion, humility, love, and respect. These traits are most evident in a person who has an intimate relationship with God. As you prepare yourself for marriage, focus on allowing God to shape you and mold you into the man or woman He wants you to be. If you submit yourself to Him, He will enable you to be ready for marriage when that wonderful day arrives. It is very important that you get pre-marital counseling before you get married by your pastor or Christian counselor or if you can find a couple to be your mentor. That is the preparation every believer needs to be ready for the great gift we call marriage.
