I just created this category called “Life conversations” where I will post real conversations of many issues we face in life. The identities of the parties involved in these conversations will be hidden so feel free to send me conversations that you think should be on here (all parties involved must be consenting).
Today, it’s about Marriage, sparking from yesterday’s post on Marriage: A guy’s view.
Girl: But honestly, why do guys have to wait till everything is ‘in place’ b4 they get married, and I’m not just talking about me
Boy: Lol. Of course, it’s almost every guy. We have d “I have to be in control” gene. So it’s a big deal not to be in control financially
Girl: Then what happened to having faith in God. Isn’t He meant to be in control? If you’re in control of your finances, anything can happen that will be beyond your control
Boy: Hmm…Not in that way. Didn’t you read Deolu’s blog that Faith also takes responsibility
Girl: Faith takes responsibility but also requires you to step out. How is waiting till it is safe faith?
Boy: Not necessarily waiting till it is safe. The same way you have to pass a driving test B4 you even say you want a car. Will both of you marry and be staring into space?
Girl: But you have to practice with a car before you can dream of passing the test
Boy: D practice car is d relationship
Girl: And how long do you want to learn how to practice? You ‘wan’ be learner for how many years
Boy: We can’t continue with this analogy, Because it will mean I’d drive one car for the rest of my life
Girl: Choose another then. You can pimp the car
Boy: Ahh!!! One car?! For 75yrs??!
Girl: Get a classy car and keep pimping it
Boy: D engine will knock :p. No service
Girl: And there’s the mechanic (God); The third chord
Boy: Girl, your argument is not sound :p
Girl: Then refute it
***To be Continued***
Food for thought:
How do you know you are ready for marriage?
Communication is key.
