Wherever you are going to, someone has already been there. All you need is to learn from the one who has made it there successfully. This applies to relationships and marriages. If you are single and about to enter into a relationship, it’s wise to friend someone who have dated successfully and now married to learn vital lessons you wouldn’t get from anywhere.
The kind of mistakes you are about to commit in your relationship or marriage, someone has already made that mistake. Getting a role model or a relationship mentor can be of great help to your relationship or marriage. You have to accept the fact that you don’t know everything, and therefore you must be willing to learn in order to better your own relationship and marriage.
Unfortunately, most singles and dating couples friend the wrong people who advise them wrongly. The truth is the kind of people around you and those relationships or marriages you see around you have some influence on your own relationship and marriage. If all your friends are jumping from one relationship to another, it’s possible you will do same if you learn their ways. Or you will be tempted to treat your relationship or marriage the way that your friends do.
Having someone to look up to and learn from him or her is very important if you want to have a successful relationship or marriage. They will tell you certain things which can save or enhance your relationship or marriage. Because of their experiential knowledge, they may be able to tell you whether your relationship with someone will work out or not or whether the person is the right person for you or not.
There are some relationships you can see from the onset that it’s not going to work out. But unfortunately the couples in it can’t tell whether it will work out or not. They are just trying to hold unto the relationship with the mentality that things are going to change or get better. Meanwhile, a role model will be able to help these young persons out by telling them that the relationship is not the best for them.
There are a lot of people whose marriages are working who you can friend them to help you with your marriage. They will be glad to help you either make the right choice or advice you on some challenges in the relationship and marriage world. They will also be praying for you to ensure that you enjoy the same kind of relationship or marriage they are enjoying. They can be a boss at work, a colleague, an elder in church, a family member or a Pastor. Any of these people can be of a help to you but make sure their marriages are working well first.
