How do you choose who to get married to? Do you just marry anybody, or do you seat back and ask God for direction? While it is possible for God to lead you to a total stranger to get married to, for example, he led Hosea to marry a prostitute, and I bet Hosea had never met Gomer before that time, it is highly unlikely.
Because your partner will have to turn out to be your closest friend, it will be best if you get married to your friend. Faith Oyedepo said that during dating, you have the responsibility to choose a friend. Wouldn't it be easier to choose someone who is already your friend, than choosing someone and making the person your closest friend?
Another reason why you should marry your friend is because the dating period would not be as long. You see, dating is a period where you get to know the person you will spend the rest of your life with. If you are friends with this person already, chances are that you already know a good chunk about the person's life. When you start dating, you wouldn't have to spend more time getting to know this person.
Faith Oyedepo said that marriage is a lifelong commitment, and because of that, it's not something you should rush into. For example, it doesn't take long to build a messed up shack. Someone can rush into it and finish the building in a few days, but someone who wants to build a mansion cannot just rush into it. Building a mansion will take a long time both in preparing to build it, and finally building it. It's the same with marriage. If you just rush into it, you will rush our if it. This explains why there is a rise in divorce rates worldwide. Take your time, and ask God for direction. You will not regret it if you do. Be blessed.
