Good day ma,
Please help me ask this question in the house. I am 39 years old. Successful young man with good job and car. My younger ones are all married except me. Being a man,everyone has been on my case to find someone and settle down.
Truth is,its my desire to be married too. I have been in several relationships and none worked out. The last relationship even lasted 9 months. Which is like the longest I ever had. I do not know what is wrong. I am seriously bothered.
I would like to find someone and be married before I am 40 years old. Which is next year but I am not in a relationship with anyone. My brother in-law is a pastor. He and my sister have been fasting and praying for me.
After the prayers,my brother in-law gave me a revelation: that God said that the woman that I must marry must be someone older than me. I was shocked because I am someone who desires to marry someone who I am at least 3 years older than.
I have never desired an older lady. I do not have anything against them but they are not in the picture for me. My brother in-law says if I marry someone younger,the marriage will not work.
Ha…I refused to accept this revelation but my family is religious,they are worried for me. I do not have anyone at the moment…does this mean that I have to start looking for an older lady to marry?
My previous relationships one thing I noticed is that my personality is one that I do not like disrespect. These young girls sometimes they do not know how to give respect…maybe ..is that why the revelation says I should marry older woman?…will an older woman give the respect that a younger one cannot give?
Does God dictate the age of the person one must marry? I started talking with someone last week. Nothing yet but she is someone I would like to ask out on a date but she is not older than me…please what would you advise me to do: should I discontinue talking with her or what….
I am confused…older woman….how much older…but why would God say such a thing….has anyone been in a similar situation before…how did you go through this?
