Is Marriage really worth it?

It's just a ? to myself. I haven't dated in 6 yr's and I got tangled up with a non believer about ywo months agos. The first time I had ever been with anybody and it got rough the first day we met. I know that married christians has got to be awsome but, I for one seem happier alone but, there are times where I get lonely. Like I would love to watch a chick flick with my wife in the bed and fall asleep in each others arms together. I know it's mushy but, I hear that marriage is a BIG commitment so there are alot of things that can cause distrust. I just hope if God is ever willing which I have come to a place where I accept being alone but if He does bring me someone will it be worth it. I would cherish her like no other. I'm just concerned is God looking into the future and seeing that I would be a problem or is it just not time yet. What do you guys think? Is marriage worth almost everything to you besides God?

I think you should try the dating thing. Maybe look into Christian Singles and such.

Marriage can be a cubic ton of issues, and not something anyone should jump into.

However snuggling on the sofa watching a chick flick is kinda cool, I've done that before with my my wife. But then again, I've done that with some of my former GF's as well.

Go out and test the waters, see where life leads you.

God Bless

I agree. Maybe try keeping an open mind, and maybe take a few proactive steps if you have trouble meeting people. Don't worry too much about marriage at first. Just take it one step at a time. But also keep an open mind about staying single. Having a good perspective will really help you.

Not sure what you're asking? Is marriage a good idea? Is that what you're asking?

For me, marriage is worth it. Sure, it has challenges and struggles along the way but I like to have someone by my side who can be my rock and who I can love in return. That works because he is the right person for me to be with though. I would rather be alone than married to the wrong person. Marriage is not for everyone. It sounds to me like you are not sure if you would prefer to continue alone or look at marriage? I'd suggest that you just see what unfolds naturally. If you meet someone you want to marry, and are sure they are right, then marry them. If not, just continue as it is.

Falling asleep in each others arms?

Doesn't happen. You usually end up saying goodnight and then rolling to opposite sides of the bed, and if you have to sleep a certain way sometimes you're even turned away from your spouse.

Like I HAVE to be on the right side of the bed, sleeping on my right side. My husband has to be on the left side of the bed sleeping on his left side. So our backs are too each other.


I've heard of very very very few couples who can actually cuddle while sleeping.

I say marriage is defiantly worth it as a newly wed its amazing getting to know the person your supposed to be with for the rest of your life. Like me I sweat in my sleep and she thinks its the funniest thing she calls me her big baby, like I didn't know she could rub my face till I feel asleep. I say marrying definitely is worth it I mean it is a physical sacrifice to a person you love and a spiritual bond and a legal document. To go through all of that and lay next to the woman you love and see her mouth open and she farts while making a nasty face its def worth it

I've heard of very very very few couples who can actually cuddle while sleeping.

This sounds very much like us! Except I have to sleep on my left, which I've done since I was pregnant, so now it's habit. He has always slept on his right. That was actually our first very minor argument on our first night together. Who gets which side of the bed!

We don't fall asleep in each others arms much at all. Only if I fall asleep on him while watching a movie, sitting on the couch. We smooch, roll over and sleep on our edges of the bed. Halfway through the night we're practically fighting over who gets the middle of the bed. Such fun!

I say marriage is totally worth it. Ain't no bed of roses, but neither would being single for all your life.

That sound so like so much fun just rolling over and pushing her saying your on my side of the bed. Aw it just sounds refreshing to hear ya'lls responses. I mostly in the single forums so to hear you guys is nice.
