If people are thinking of getting married in the future, they should be preparing themselves now. Don't we have to be prepared in many ways...not just the hope that it will happen, or the let's leave it to fate? We should be prepared emotionally, spiritualy, physically, financially, to the best of our capabilities. Some examples... reduce your debts as much as you can. I am blessed not to have any, everything that I have is paid in full, my condo, my car - there are no loans out there. Nine months ago I was overweight for my small bone stucture...not anymore. I am cleaning up my life emotionally...that is to say that situations that I have no control over that are causing me grief, these situations are being eliminated from my life. We must prepare spiritually, as best that we can. To me, right now, this means drawing inward and closing out the world so that I can be quiet enough to listen when that small Voice speaks to me in the stillness. Shouldn't we all be thinking of what we want to be for our future spouse, and don't we want to be able to give our best?
I have been preparing. When my anullment comes through, I am not going to be wishing that I had prepared myself better for marriage. Rather, I
will have tried to take all of the steps that I can to be ready.
