Happily Ever After

My two bits

ROFL! I came across this funny post at Natasha’s World today.

THE WORLD’S SHORTEST FAIRYTALE

Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl “Will you marry me?”

The girl said: “NO!”. And the girl lived happily ever-after and went shopping, dancing, camping, always had a clean house, never cooked, did whatever the hell she wanted, never argued, didn’t gain weight, traveled more, had fun going on dates, had plenty of money, and had all the hot water to herself. She went to the movies, never had to watch sports, never wore friggin’ lacy lingerie that went up her butt crack, had high self esteem, never cried or yelled, felt and looked fabulous in sweat pants and was pleasant all the time.

The End

What a lovely story!

The only sad thing about it is that the girl got lonely from time to time, had no children (which is a crucial element for a very happy story), and some guy sure was miserable because he missed out on having a woman in his life.

I have two daughters and I hope they never marry. Why? Because I hate men? No, that’s not why, and I don’t hate men! because of this:

But if you do marry, you have not sinned; and if a virgin marries, she has not sinned. But those who marry will face many troubles in this life, and I want to spare you this…

An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of this world—how she can please her husband. I am saying this for your own good, not to restrict you, but that you may live in a right way in undivided devotion to the Lord.

I Corinthians 7:8-35

This is true and I believe Paul had wisdom. Marriage is not for everyone. It can be such a blessing, but it is a fact that it is a distraction.

    Marriage is not for everyone, you are certainly right about that. But I would never in a million years find it as a “distraction”…that is a very interesting word to use!

  2. Rebecca Says:

    I guess using the word “distraction” depends on your goal. Is your goal to serve the Lord? Then marriage is a distraction because sometimes you do have to compromise things. A wife is supposed to please her husband (and vice versa, I may add), so her attentions are divided. However, if your goal is to serve the husband, then marriage is not a distraction at all. But scripturally, a married woman is supposed to serve the Lord and please her husband. Sometimes that can be very difficult, as Paul stated. It is best to serve the Lord and please the Lord. But not all can live this way, so that’s why it’s not a “command” but rather a “suggestion.” Yet serving the Lord is not an option– there will be days when you will not please the husband. That’s the stickler.
