In our society today, it is an obvious fact that we all entered marriage relationships with high hope of having a happy and exciting marriage”. But in reality, some are enjoying their marriages to the fullest, while some marriages are dragging.
Some marriages have collapsed, while greater numbers are on the verge of collapse. As this year is half gone, how has your own marriage fared? Is it exciting, boring, or on the verge of collapse? Some marriages have collapsed, while greater numbers are on the verge of collapse.
As this year is half a year gone, how has your own marriage fared? Is it exciting, boring, or on the verge of collapse? We shall be looking at major reasons for failed or collapsed marriages.
To this end, the point I wish to make here is that some couples lack an understanding of what to do about their marriage relationships. They as well lack the understanding of how to apply the correct principles that make for successful and exciting marriages.
However, there are many things couples are doing in their marriages that are forcing or will force their marriages to collapse. If we analyze closely some already failed marriages, we will surely see that some of these elements caused such marriages to collapse.
So if any, of such elements are found in your own marriage, you should take drastic actions to avoid your own marriage from failing otherwise your marriage will collapse.
Marrying a selfish partner: There are couples who entered marriage with the whole aim of what to get out of their marriage and not what to give out. For such couples, you always see them complain and accuse their spouses of doing and not doing that, they are never satisfied with the actions of their partner.
That is to say, such couples, when they fail to get enough from their marriage, they call it a quit. So if you happened to be married to a selfish partner, know for sure that your marriage may surely fail unless he or she changes his or her attitude.
The next is marrying a manipulator: There are couples, because of their selfishness; who do everything to manipulate their partners to do their bidding. Some women even apply unconventional means, such as juju, charm, and spells to control their partners.
So, such couples, when they feel that they failed in manipulating their spouses, they call it a quit. If you happen to have married a manipulator, the only reason the marriage is still holding is that you are still yielding to his or her manipulation. The very moment some partners react or refuse to yield to manipulation may signal the end of such marriages.
Marrying a hard to please man or woman. If you are still single, you should pray that you don’t get married to a man or woman who is hard to please. Such men or women, and their partners, may be suffering in silence, doing everything they know or could do to please their partners. However, the more they try, the more it appears as if they have not started.
Hard to please men or women who are quick to compare their spouses with other ladies or men they see in town because they are not always satisfied with their spouses. They always find faults with their partners, and sooner than later, they abandon their spouses for someone they feel is better.
Such men, or women, always demand more from their partners. The moment they feel that they are not getting much from their spouse, they call such marriage a quit. That is why marriages of hard to please men or women hardly survive.
The next is getting married to an unmarriageable man or woman: Again, you should pray that you don’t get married to a man or a woman that is not a marriageable man or woman.
Recently I was watching Emmanuel some time ago and a man was lamenting that since he got married to his wife – a princess, he has been suffering. His wife doesn’t know how to cook or take care of the house.
According to the man, the only time he enjoys a good meal is if he went to the kitchen to prepare such food even though his wife is around in the house. Most of the time, the man is the one who goes to the kitchen to wash the plates and tidy the kitchen.
Of a truth, the very reason that has survived is that that man has the time and grace to do all these things in the house, his wife is an unmarriageable material. But for how long will such a man continues with such a marriage?
Marrying a contentious and an angry woman: if you are a man, God ‘save your soul” that you don’t get married to what the Bible calls a contentious and an angry woman. See how the book of Proverbs 21:19 puts it, “It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman”.
Moreover, the book of Proverbs 25:24 puts it this way, “It is better to dwell in the corner of the housetop, than with a brawling woman and in a wide house”. It is a known fact, that marriages with a contentious and angry woman hardly survive as men in such marriages run for their lives from such marriages, or else the men will die before their time.
Marrying a partner with body odor: I pointed out the issue of body odor in one of my earlier articles, “Top reasons why some marriages May surely fail. Marrying a partner with body odor, such marriages hardly survive. You can read the following to see what happened in reality:
If you are still single and planning to marry, pray that you don’t get any of the above-mentioned as a wife or husband, or else your marriage will be heading for a failure in due time.
However, if you happened to be in such a marriage relationship unless something drastic is done to remedy the situation, your marriage may likely hit the rock. Shalom!
