In one of my recent videos called 3 Signs God Is Keeping You Single, one of the points I made there was that God will often keep people single if they are too immature to handle a godly relationship. As Matthew 7:11 states, God only gives “good gifts” to his children.
One question this raised in the minds of many was, “Well why are there so many immature people who are married then? If God keeps some people single because they are not prepared for marriage, what about all the people who are married even though they are not living for God?”
When you are single it is easy to assume that marriage will solve a lot of the issues you are experiencing. In some cases, marriage really can help you. Through a healthy Christian marriage, you will experience companionship, support, and a teammate in life that truly is a blessing. For as Proverbs 18:22, “He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord.”
Song of Solomon 7:6-13

While it is ideal that we as Christians study the Bible and learn from others about Christian relationships and marriage, there are many lessons we end up learning the hard way.
Every Christian single who gets into a new relationship wants it to work. If you didn’t want it to work, you would not have started dating in the first place. Obviously, however, more Christian dating relationships fail than do succeed.
Sometimes this is just because it was a bad fit, the two realized they didn’t want to be together, or it just wasn’t meant to be. Sometimes, however, there are simply mistakes made in a relationship that cause problems or even breakups.

When I was a teenager in need of a summer job, lifeguarding seemed like the perfect fit. I could be in the sun, sit in a chair most of the day, and perhaps even be a hero if someone needed saving. What could be better than that?

Will God tell you who to marry? And if so, is it possible that God would tell you to marry someone you don’t like that much? Could God call you to marry someone you are not attracted to?
