We live in such a time where everyone feels they have an opinion about who you choose to love or get married to. It is imperative to take suggestions and opinions from others wit caution.
Make your choices with an open but selective mind.
Is age really just a number?
Age is just a number when it comes to love some people say. Is it? what do you think?
From my experience and having spoken to quite a number of people, age might not really matter when love is involved.
However, when i had this conversation with a friend, we addressed the issue of setting boundaries that prohibit abuse if minorities.
I know quite a number of people happily married with 10 years of age difference (or even more) and oh, they have godly, blissful marriages.
Interestingly, I have also come across women who dated/married men younger than they were and hell did not break loose, as a matter of fact, heaven is still rejoicing over their exemplary marriages.
Let’s talk about race, culture and ethnicity
Personally, I never had to deal with the colour/race issue, but I definitely got to deal with the ethnicity and culture issue.
Should where a person comes from or the color of their skin influence our decisions to date or get married to them? I don’t thinks so.
Unfortunately, this is very much the case in some cultures and cities. I may have even fallen guilty of this and so have many others.
In all of this, I have come to realize that:
As an individual, be true to yourself. Would the age difference be a barrier to you or your relationship/marital life?
Would you have communication issues/barriers or social preferences that lead to issues as a result of the age difference? Then think wisely before making your decisions.
Same goes for colour, race and ethnicity.
Would culture place communication or other forms of barriers or issues within your relationship and/or marriage? Then you need to make permanent decisions with caution and wisdom. Your life, your choice.
Parental advise and blessing are definitely key when it comes to choosing a life partner and so is elderly counsel.
Sometimes we think we know so much or are old enough to make our own decisions, but wisdom also comes with age.
People’s choices on whom they choose to love and get married to (age, colour, ethnicity) should be respected.
God’s choice of a partner for you is beyond, age, colour and ethnicity. Would whoever you choose be your partner in becoming a better version of yourself, helping you achieve your goals and dreams?
