At 1st glance, this point looks like a repetition of the “love is not enough” point, but let’s take a closer look.
Like I wrote in the first part of this article, being in love is not an ADEQUATE FOUNDATION for building a SUCCESSFUL MARRIAGE.

After that, i got heavily involved in fellowship and church activities.

Happy New Year! I’m sure many of you have written out your goals and have started working towards making them happen. I know some of us have “to get married by so so time” as one of such goals. Infact, some of the people with such goals have fixed dates “in faith” and don’t even have a partner yet!
