Marriage is a sacrament in the Christian faith and is taken very seriously. Christians believe that marriage is a lifelong commitment. For these reasons and more, Christians often marry later in life.
Many Christians nowadays marry after completing their education, establishing their careers, and being financially stable. This wasn’t always the case. Christians used to marry young — often right after they turned 18. There are many reasons for this shift, but here are a few key reasons why Christians are now marrying later in life:
Ultimately, the decision to marry later or earlier in life is a personal one. There are pros and cons to both. What’s important is that you make the best decision for yourself, your walk with the Lord, and your future spouse.
The common reasons Christians marry later are influenced by the changes in the world. But the Bible says that “he who finds a wife, finds a good thing.” (Proverbs 18:22). For many Christians, marriage is still a good thing, even if they’re choosing to marry later in life.
As a Christian, it is your responsibility to connect with God and strengthen your faith. It will help you discern His will for your life.
Pray for guidance and wait patiently. Marriage is a beautiful thing, but it is not something to be taken lightly.
