9 People You Shouldn't Marry

So many people end up asking themselves why they made the mistake of choosing the wrong life partner. The bible says "He who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favour from the LORD."- Proverbs 18: 22. (NKJV) This means getting a woman or man to marry requires due diligence. You have to look for the right person. This is foundational. When the foundation is faulty there will be cracks on the walls. This does not imply that you must find the perfect person. No one is perfect. However, it is best to err on the side of caution. 

The following are the 10 kinds of people you should not marry so you can stay on the safe side:

1. Don't marry unbeliever. Do not marry a person who does not have the same belief with you. Can two walk together, unless they are agreed? (Amos 3:3 NKJV) Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? (2 Corinthians 6:14 NKJV)

2. Don't marry a married person. "So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate." (Matthew 19:6 NKJV)

3. Don't marry an angry person. Make no friendship with an angry man, And with a furious man do not go, (Proverbs 22:24 NKJV). If a person cannot deal with anger before marriage, it will be worse after marriage. Anger is destructive.

4.Don't marry thief. If he or she is a thief or engages in fraud or illegality your future is at stake. Watch out! Zechariah 5:3-4.

5. Don't marry a liar -Rev 21:8.

6.Don't marry a someone without ambition. That you also aspire to live a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you, (1 Thessalonians 4:11 NKJV). 

7.Don't marry a disobedient person or a fornicator

8. Don't marry a fatherless person. Even if his or her father is dead, there must be a person in his or her life that stands in the position of a father. Somebody highly respected whose wise counsel they adheres to.

9.Don't marry a stranger. Find out where he or she comes from. Know them and let them know you. Don't marry a faceless person simply because he or she shows up in church. 

May God lead us all. Amen.
