Just take your time and get married when you are very sure you are ready …
This is the True Meaning of Marriage simplified.
To go into marriage you need the following;
1. Maturity and Money: please note that maturity has nothing to do
with your age, once you are matured enough to handle point 3,4,5 and 8
below your are good to go. Money on the other hand is very important
in marriage. Though some people say “no money no love” but I want you
understand that Love must come first before money in marriage. You can
love without money but for the sake of Success-In-Marriage, money is
needed because Money Lubricates the Engine of Love in Marriage.
2. Accountability: Yes! You are and must be accountable to your spouse.
3. Responsibility: marriage is a place of taking responsibility for
your actions and for the family. While it is the responsibility of the
man to provide for the family, it is the responsibility of the woman
to take care of the home(including the children).

8. Endurance: this is needed in all marriage and if you are very sure
that you can’t endure bad, tough and most difficult times with that
person please Never you get married to him/her. Situations, actions
and behaviors that will require you to endure (most times for a very
long time) will surly arise, therefore you must be prepared and ready
Finally, remember that God is the head of all marriages, so it is
