Your most important life decision is your spouse.
Living a simple life is great., just make sure you have the right spouse or life can be hell. If your materialistic listen to Warren Buffet who says the most crucial decision a man can make in life is his spouse or his partner. If your Biblical the bible says a woman can either be a crown to her husband or bone cancer. That is a substantial difference and life threatening. It speaks that it is not good for man to be alone. The woman in your life is especially important. The Bible and Warren Buffet both agree your spouse is one of the most important life decisions you can make. We are talking about your lifelong partner.
I do not believe in a divorce, but it happens. I am going through a 2.5 yearlong one and it has wreaked havoc on my children, our finances, and everyone involved. I will share more of my lessons learned from the divorce later that topic alone. I can say we hooked up young, I was in junior high she was in high school, we grew into two different people. I can say on a scripture note she was like a cancer to my bones and tore us apart. I will share details later as I am authoring a book on the divorce and the lessons I learned, it will go over the marriage, problems, and evidence as well.
Picking the wrong life partner will leave you in a miserable situation. Either you live miserable together or you get a divorce in which a lot of times leave you miserable as well. The divorce could go smooth, and either way you can bounce back. It can also get ugly and permanently damage your children, the both of you, and your finances. My divorce has been a mess, full of CPS cases, hospital visits, attorney fee, criminal cases, and much more. What I want to recommend is take your time, wait until you have grown into who you are going to be, and they have grown into who they will be. See if you have the same life ambitions, morals, and can be on the same boat going the same direction. You want someone you can build an empire with not someone who will keep you from building one.
Below you will find some scripture on woman, love, and partnership.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
1 Corinthians 4-8
And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
Every wise woman buildeth her house: but the foolish plucketh it down with her hands
A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.
An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.
The heart of her husband trusts in her, And he will have no lack of gain.
She does him good, and not harm, All the days of her life.
She seeks wool and flax, and works with willing hands.
She is like the ships of the merchant;
She brings her food from afar. She rises while it is yet night
And provides food for her household And portions for her maidens.
She considers a field and buys it; With the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard.
She dresses herself with strength And makes her arms strong.
She perceives that her merchandise is profitable. Her lamp does not go out at night.
She puts her hands to the distaff, And her hands hold the spindle.
She opens her hand to the poor And reaches out her hands to the needy.
She is not afraid of snow for her household, For all her household are clothed in scarler.
She makes bed coverings for herself; Her clothing is fine linen and purple.
Her husband is known in the gates When he sits among the elders of the land.
She makes linen garments and sells them; She delivers sashes to the merchant.
Strength and dignity are her clothing, and she laughs at the time to come.
She opens her mouth with wisdom, And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household
And does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed;
Her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women have done excellently,
But you surpass them all.” Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain,
But a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Give her of the fruit of her hands, And let her works praise her in the gates.
Sharing is caring
