Good afternoon my fellow Uptrenndian. I hope you are using this opportunity to gather more 1ups for the harvest moment? You had better do and keep learning too.
Last night, I saw @Merit Ahama's post titled "The wedding cake". The story she wrote was very interesting and you can read with just a click here to take you there.
It's a story about two ladies (both siblings) Just because the younger sister was getting married before her, she decided to ruin the day for her thereby implicating her. Should this be?
Marriage is an institution ordained by God and it is only Him that has the date and day for everyone to be married. Your day to get settled down has already been written down in His record but a situation where you are in a haste to get married because of different reasons known to you either through an influence, or you are being forced to, will only make you regret your actions forever. Once you have entered into a marriage with the wrong mindset, you have stepped into an everlasting problem which will cost your life or whatever that may go with it.
In some part of the world, among cultures, it is a taboo for the youngest to get married before the eldest. So it is mandated that the younger one will have to wait for the eldest to go first, even if he or she has gotten a suitor already. I don't want to dwell much on that area because it is another topic on its own.
Marriage doesn't determine age, age doesnt determine marriage. The younger can go before the senior, it doesn't mean. As long as the younger has found his or her partner and they are ready to move in together. Also, you shouldn't get angry or get jealous because your younger sister or brother, is going before you. This is not something you should fight over or get annoyed at.
There is a saying we used to say then and it is "They don't take latecomers in wedding" You can go first and I go last, what matters is we settle down at the end with the right partner and with the right mindset.
My elder sister once told me that once I have seen the one I want to get married to and we are both ready, I should not wait for her to go first. Our time is different. We shouldn't be in an hurry to do what can later turn to problem for us.
In as much as you haven't seen him or her yet, but your junior one is ready, be happy with him or her, instead of planning evil against them. Let that day be the happiest day for them. Be happy and rejoice with them. Your time is just different from him or her according to what God has written down for everyone.
