Yes, I also hope you don't have to wait till you're 80.
You're a good looking gal....
You sound smart too.
Men must be nutty !!

Blessings...
Thank you for your praise. After a long time of waiting and searching, I feel a little discouraged. I really don't know what god wants. But I don't think I have the gift of being single, so I'll keep waiting and looking

Marriage is never promised. Most Christian's hate hearing that, but it's the truth. I think learning to accept that is a greater priority. Maybe it will happen, maybe not.
Why do you think so?

Because I see no biblical support for the idea.
We can even see it in Paul's words. He discouraged the Choice of marriage except for those struggling with lust. If marriage were a promise why would Paul discourage people to accept a promise from God?

You may have to consider pursuing a relationship leading to marriage with a man that is outside the church but yet is a Christian
What does that mean?
