This is a really interesting article and although it’s for our single women, some married women may unfortunately recognize their husbands in here. This was an article and the original title was 10 Men Christian women should never marry.
These were some of our favourites:
The liar. If you discover that the man you are dating has lied to you about his past or that he’s always covering his tracks to hide his secrets from you, run for the nearest exit. Marriage must be built on a foundation of trust. If he can’t be truthful, break up now before he bamboozles you with an even bigger deception.
Oh, that’s a really good one. It really doesn’t matter what religion you profess, if you discover that your man is a liar, please DITCH HIM ASAP!
The bum. I have a female friend who realized after she married her boyfriend that he had no plans to find steady work. He had devised a great strategy: He stayed home all day and played video games while his professional wife worked and paid all the bills. The apostle Paul told the Thessalonians, “If anyone is not willing to work, then he is not to eat, either” (2 Thess. 3:10). The same rule applies here: If a man is not willing to work, he doesn’t deserve to marry you.
This is very common among successful career women. We know some who have settled for bums because they are desperate to get married and ‘any man is better than no man.’ Well, they quickly realize that sometimes, no man means peace of mind rather than high blood pressure.
The abuser. Men with abusive tendencies can’t control their anger when it boils over. If the guy you are dating has a tendency to fly off the handle, either at you or others, don’t be tempted to rationalize his behavior. He has a problem, and if you marry him you will have to navigate his minefield every day to avoid triggering another outburst. Angry men hurt women—verbally and sometimes physically. Find a man who is gentle.
