The “S” word for Christian women…
Michael and I dated 7 years before getting married. Statistics say that is waaaay too long. For the most part, I agree. There are 3 reasons we waited:
- We started dating when we were babies.
- He wasn’t ready to commit.
- I wasn’t ready to submit.
He was ready to commit before I was ready to submit. He proposed. We planned the wedding. I started freaking out.
I was independent! I had a college degree! I bought a house on my own! Submit??? SUBMIT????
I was really struggling. I would get all the way through Ephesians chapter 5, and every time I got to verse 22, I would stop. I knew I needed to understand what it meant to submit before I walked down that aisle. I did a lot of soul searching in those months before our wedding. And I sought wise counsel.
