If you are planning on joining the military and planning on getting married, there are certain advantages and disadvantages to tying that knot before you leave for basic training.
As with any marriage there are challenges, however, there are many challenges unique to the military.
You may have an idea of where you envision yourself walking down the aisle or what you want your cake to look like, but until you decide when you'd like to get married, you can't commit to anything.There’s not really any normal way to start a relationship.Some people go on a date, and then another date, and then another, and one day it’s just clear to both of them that they’re in a relationship.It’s not wrong to desire marriage (and I’ve shared why in great detail). I was tired of striving; tired of the “holding pattern” life I’d embraced. Let your dream die, and let Jesus raise you to abundant life.But your job is not to “make room” in your life for it. For all we know, they fought it while in long term singleness. God doesn’t need you to ready your life for Him to work. Stop doing what God hasn’t asked of you and concentrate on the one thing He desires: Your complete trust in His goodness and ability.
