Top 5 Wrong Reasons We Marry the Wrong Person

While there are many right reasons we marry the right person, there
are also manywrong reasons we marry the wrong one. Before you say,
“Yes,” consider the following top five wrong reasons we
decide to marry
the wrong person, ultimately resulting in divorce;

1. Next Step. We’ve been dating a long time, and this is the next
step. The length of a relationship is not a measure of it’s long-term

2. Peer Pressure. All of my friends are getting married … it’s time.
Feeling left out of the group may feel awkward, but is not a good reason
to jump into marriage.

3. Settling. I don’t think I’ll do any better. It may sound
cliché, but if you don’t respect and love yourself, it will be difficult
to respect and love another person.

4. Behavior Modification. After we get married, I can force the other
person to change. A marriage certificate is not a license to force your
partner to modify his/her behaviors!

 5. Money. He/She will be a good provider or comes from a good family.
There’s a lot of truth in the old saying, “If you marry for money,
you’ll pay for it.” Though having money certainly doesn’t hurt, it’s not
the basis for a solid relationship and won’t hold together a bad union.
