"I'm never getting married" is a line that many young people at one time in their lives are familiar with. There are some who actually follow through with it for the rest of their lives and are quite content too. There are others who obviously change their minds during the course of their life, and are constantly on the look out for the right or perfect person.
It has become quite the culture for couples to cohabit pre-marriage or even just to have a life partner, and this seems to work amongst many individuals. With a change in acceptable norms of society today it seems that as long as couples are happy ( hopefully for all the right reasons), there lies no qualms about it.
So much for looking for the so called 'right' or 'perfect' person when we know that they just don't exist. It is merely loving the imperfect person perfectly, and the love that emanates between the two that makes everything about that relationship so right and perfect, and most of all one that lasts.
It is not easy to be able to 'share' yourself with someone as time goes by, as one becomes so set in their individual routine of life, and they have to accommodate someone else who 'destabilises' what seems a perfect balance. We wonder whether that once comfortable single life would mean the end to those days when you just wake up in the mornings and plan to be spontaneous with your whole day, or just simply decide to lie in for the morning and maybe afternoon, or just stay in your PJ's for the whole day, just because you can.
Well seemingly and hopefeully some of that doesn't have to change...only if you've drawn up a contract in advance with the specifications!
All in all, life wouldn't be all that fun if it was just a 'room for one'. I believe that there is a someone for everyone out there, as much as many people are content without the so-called 'headaches' of having somebody else and just enjoy being able to have 'me-time' all the time.
If you haven't been blessed with a partner yet, you're blessed with plenty moments to appreciate, and get yourself ready for that day when Mr or Miss Compatibility walks through your door.
'Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight' ~ Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)
Never give up or lose faith...the time will come...there is a time for all things in life that must and will be..
Count your blessings!!
