A man is an asset in a woman's life

06 June 2016, 15:49 Anne Mutinda

Nairobi - "Why do I need a husband for?" asked a 24 year-old university student during a recent interactive forum at a Nakuru church  on how to remain a marriage material.

"As long as I have my money and I am happy with myself,I can live on my own." she further argued.

Some of the youthful fellows agreed with her while others were just amazed with her stand considering that her age points to marriage.

Well, marriage has its own challenges but it must be understand that once you find a partner with whom you blend with harmoniously, it can be a source of peace of mind,strength and joy.

Here is why:

When you find a friend in a man,you find a comforter. The person you can call at any time of the day to share with your tribulations. Life can be stressful:very stressful that you will need someone to confide in.Someone to listen to you in the middle of the night when you have lost sleep.Somehow,the load becomes lighter and strains of life loosen up.

In a way God built a woman to yearn for a man and the vice versa.That is why a time comes in one's life you feel such an emptiness which you cannot seem to explain.It affects your mood and productivity.You try all means to fill it but it just can't go away.This is the moment you find yourself calling your mom six times a day and each time you consult on some interesting issues like "Is it okay mom to do a cat breeding business?"
Finally, you leave your mom traumatised while your wound of emptiness remains fresh.Until you talk to that person you call a 'boyfriend or husband' it will never heal.It's such a dramatic feeling.

So,a man is an asset in a woman's life.All that needs to be is finding the right match.
