Why Marriage?

I am always thinking. Lately I have been asking myself, “Why do you want to be married?”

Not the textbook reasons, but the ULTIMATE reason.

Yes: I believe you have to have purpose with your partner. I desire purpose.

But ultimately-I want to be married because I want to experience being a man’s priority. I want to experience what it is like to be chosen.

My cousin came in town for Easter weekend and I told her this. She has been married for 24 years, so I trust her opinion on marriage.

She flat out told me that if I want to be married for that reason, then you aren’t going to be their priority. I got the hint that I needed to have another reason.

Honestly, that is my ultimate reason. I have others and previously noted, but that reason really does rank number 1. So if so am not going to be my husband’s priority, then I am at a loss at this point.

I am having such an “I don’t know” moment with this. If I am not going to be my husband’s priority, then why in the world would I get married?

Maybe with more reflection I will get more revelation. But right now I can’t call it!

I have a question for all who reads this: What is the REAL reason you want to be married? The answer doesn’t have to be subject to public consumption, but the honesty to that question may guide you in your desires for marriage.
