Marriage is a life commitment according to God. It is important therefore to take your time to understand what marriage is and choosing your best life partner. Never do these things when you are under pressure. Marriage is a very important life choice one can ever make. We are told that is not good for a man to be alone. That means every human being needs to have somebody to spend life with.

And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. (Genesis 2:18, 21-25).

When we talk of finding your best life partner we simply mean finding someone who will be suitable for you. He or she may not be perfect, but at least you can live comfortably with each other. You can bear with each other’s shortcomings. Furthermore, that means you can face the challenges of life together. Let us look at the first part of this search journey, which is knowing what you like and dislike.

Before talking about likes and dislikes, allow me to indicate the following:

1) Man was first to be created and the woman was formed later

Note that the woman was made to suit a man. My point here is that it should not be difficult for man and woman to be together. That is how God created them.

2) God brought the woman to a man

When God showed up with the woman the man just knew that that woman belonged to him. See how the man welcomed the woman? “..This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh… (Genesis 2:23). Is that not an interesting welcome for the woman. If you are a man, there is a lady out there who is suitable for you. You are a lady? There is a man who is meant to welcome you in his life. Just open your eyes.

Finding a life partner should not be something you should stress about. Just follow the inner guidance and you will meet you suitable life partner. However, in order for you to know the right one, you must first know and understand yourself. How can you do that?
